aside from the fact that by avoiding the champ starfire and z avenger you are avoiding discs that are true stable vs. the sb orc which is "plastic stable" on a naturally understable mold.

I think the X-Pred is the best.

The Surge is like a Sidewinder+, but I like it. Just leave it at home when there is any real wind blowing.

A broken in X-Pred is like a fast DX Teebird, but is actually less nose sensitive, more predictable in the wind, and just as long.

I played a round the other day with a Surge (long glides), two X Preds (166-straight and 170-headwind) three Cyclones, a Roc, an X-Aviar, and my PA Aviar putter.

I like this the best so far. Not a nose senstive disc in the bunch.

surge is fairly nose angle sensitive, its just understable enough for alot of people to get it to hold a turn. Genereally the faster a disc gets the more nose angle sensitive it will be.

That is generally true, but not always.

A predator is super stable but not as nose sensitive as a Teebird (for me at least). The Tracker is more nose sensitive than an Eagle, but is no more stable and is actually slower.

No, some discs are just BETTER.
