usually you go more by plh to determine stability.
For the most part on domey vs. flat (if the plh is the same)
narrow rimmed drivers more dome = less stability
wide rimmed drivers more dome = more stability
You can go back in the thread for more details, but the gist is that the ESP Cyclone defies the usual behavior:
Thrown flat, the...
...domey ESP Cyclone is like a long Comet: extremely sensitive to OAT, easy to flip over, sensitive to wind, and little/no fade. Handles a clean spin-dominant throw really well, and tends to run off on a straight line (so be sure to throw it at the target!).
...flat ESP Cyclone is like a long Gazelle: holds a stable line on a hyzer flip, bleeds off OAT quickly, very good in the wind, and has a strong fade. You can crank on this thing, put it out on high flex lines, and you can count on a predictable fade.
Go figure. There is absolutely no difference in PLH between the ESP Cyclones I have compared, the bottoms are identical. The only difference is in the dome. I now have thrown 6 different (recent) ESP Cyclones to build up this comparison.
Anyways, I've notice that a couple Crystal Z Stalkers my wife and I got as swag, which are domey in comparison to my first run Z Stalker, are also a bit strange in some similar ways as the ESP Cyclone.
All of this really makes me want to get into a wind tunnel and look at the flow over these molds at various speeds. Sometimes simple rules work, and sometimes they don't. I would like to know why...
