Which overstable Discraft disc if any?

Postby Amateur » Sun Aug 13, 2006 8:49 pm

Not trying to beat a dead horse here. I'm developing and finding that I need to revamp my bag. I have around 300+ feet (w/teebirds) of power on tap.

I have 2 Avengers on the way 1X and 1Z. Will the Z Avenger be enough overstable for windy days and long hyzers? Should I look into a Flick or a Predator?

Rest of bag is (or will be soon):
Z XS (more understable/killer roller), X and Z Buzzz (anny and straight), Z wasp (on the way, hyzer approaches/S-curves if it's like my roc was), Wizards.

I played a new course today and it was a lot of fun. It was very wide open and windy. It had a lot of holes I wasn't prepared for. I couldn't rely on my mids unless thrown way low. My XS was turning over on me a lot. I really could have used a 250ft sweeping hyzer and more pronounced knife hyzers that I couldn't throw as well today.

Thanks for any help!

that z avenger is way overstable. if you were to throw a brand new x avenger and then a brand new z avenger, the z would not flip up at all. that disc is insane overstabe for what it is.

Good deal. That's exactly what I was thinking.

I was also thinking of throwing in a X or D Cyclone for a versatile fairway driver. Maybe even a S Sabre? I finally feel like I'm onto something. :D

flick

I recommend a flick for long hyzers. It knifes through the wind and goes farther than any other overstable disc out there. If you torque it really hard into a wind it will S curve just about as far as any other driver. Very versatile disc.

most of discraft's line is "overstable" but basically you have to decide if you are looking for a "true overstable" disc or a "pro stable" disc.

true overstable will be in the class with the monster and firebird.
pro stable will range a bit (mainly in terms of high speed stability) but probably more comperable to a firebird-L (pro firebird = FL) or a wraith.

very overstable:
z predator
x x-clone
z/x/d xtra
z reaper
z surge
z flick
z x2
z cyclone
z/x xtreme

moderately overstable/pro stable:
z/x talon
z/d crush
z avenger
esp surge
x reaper
x predator
d venom
x x2

I'd probably be looking for a pro stable disc seeing as how I can't drive over 350 yet. The pro stable will probably be mad overstable for me and my girly arm. :oops:

overstable drivers are SUPPOSED to fade.

a slow overstable driver will be controllable but still have the overstable flight path.
