Around here, I'd say the Boss may be one of the most overrated discs. This is just because a lot of the people I see throwing the Boss can throw their Wraith just as far, but with much less consistency.

For me, the most underrated disc I throw is the Sabre. TL like stability in a Leopard speed. It also performs like a champ in tail/crossinds. Given enough elevation, I can throw this thing as long as my big D drivers.

Most, if not all, of the newest and fastest are overrated. That's not saying they aren't good discs, they just get a ton of hype.

Underrated, I'd say most of Gateways older molds, Sabre, Blaze, warrior (original). The Xtreme and X2 as well.

I gotta agree with DGDave on some aspects of his post...

Overrated: The Speed 12 and 13 drivers.
Underrated: Gateway Blaze, Discraft Meteor, Innova Panther
If the object of disc golf were to hit trees, I'd be 1100 rated.

Over- I have to agree with *the latest and greatest high speed wonderdisc*... it was TeeRexes, then Destroyers, then XCals, now Bosses. I think Wraiths lived up to their hype and are truly great discs, though, so not all things widewinged are bad news.

Under- the Comet (the love shown on this site is disproportionate to the love it gets in the dg community at large... but I think the ESP and Z releases have definitely helped its popularity.)

Most overrated discs are Groove and monarch. Those rims are horribly bad.
Most underated discs are Gazelle and cyclone. Even i dont throw em anymore or much ever at all, but they are certainly some of the best older molds of all time

I know I'm going to get a lot of flack for this:

Over:

OLF --- I get more control with the T-bird at the same distance.


Under:

Pro Starfire --- very versatile, starts out a little overstable, then after it gets beat in its the straitess disc I know.

Over: The champ roc is #1 in my book, the prices some people pay for them is sad. The star wraith is one, but it's more over-hyped than overrated (the champ was a little better). Nearly all of these new high speed drivers are overrated, I'm not a fan of this "distance over predictability/accuracy" trend going on.

Under: Maybe the jls, and a few of the discmania molds. I believe the gazelle has been forgot about, as well as the cyclone.
