Yeah, the Dx leopard I have goes to ground fast . I use my Mamba as a roller on one hole where a flip just won't work and I suck too hard at forehand to pull it off.

Optimizer/Maximizer/Stratus. The Stratus comes in harder plastics so it would last longer.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

If you have evil eyes they might cringe and bend just from looking at them. If Westside Tursas truly is like the Stratus it could last longer than X in VIP plastic.

Tursas isn't quite as understable as you might think from the numbers. But since a Westside disc was mentioned I nominate TP Underworld to be a easy to flip roller.
Probably not quite like Optimizer or Maximizer but if you're not careful it will keep turning while on ground as well.

It sure isn't. A friend of mine had one. he threw it hard on a left to right hole. Went dead nutts straight. Straight into a bayou never to be seen again. I got to throw it some. Probably closer to Meteor than Stratus. But then again, my Meteor is not as understable as i'd like.
