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.

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
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.
