The Drone is a nice overstable mid, similar to a Gator.
Their new Wizard knock-off Ace Race disc sounds cool, too, but I've never thrown one.
The Stalker sounds like a good fairway driver, but I've never thrown one either.
Cyclones are amazingly versatile discs, but Pro D plastic generally beats in too fast. I've heard good things about ESP Cyclones (avoid Z Cyclones, they're too overstable to have that workable Cyclone flight).
Flicks are solid thumber discs if you don't like the grip of the Predator.
Avenger is much like a faster Teebird, which is a good thing.
I've heard that Discraft's Pro-D plastic has improved, but I haven't tried it. My experience with the couple discs I had was that it did indeed break in WAY too fast. I had a Wasp that broke in to a sweet spot ridiculously quick, but I stopped throwing it because I figured it'd break itself out of it's sweet spot too.
And yeah, the ESP Cyclone is a sweet, sweet disc. Old school technology with new school plastic FTW!
Oh yeah, saw a Stalker for the first time in person yesterday, it looked like an XL with a bead. Felt kinda weird in the hand to me. I think it's supposed to have similar flight to a Teebird, but for the feel, I'd rather stick with a Teebird.
