Disc weight, plastic, and stability.

Postby alerik » Wed Oct 19, 2005 11:58 pm

How does the change in plastic change the stability of a disc realitive to the weight?

I know that Z and Champion plastic is more overstable than DX or Pro-D. But how much more over stable will a premium plastic disc be over a base plastic in the same weight?

it varies by mold a lot...

the teebird and orc are discs that in pro plastic are flippier than dx, but more overstable at low speeds than dx as well.

i found the valk to be a little more stable in pro plastic.

as a whole i would say they are less high speed stable and more low speed overstable than DX.

you also have to keep in mind that many of the pro plastic discs are often the L mods. the pro starfire = starfire-L, the current teebird = teebird-L, the firebird = firebird-L, etc.
