Just curious, of the newer predator runs has any particular color been more stable than others? I've thrown pink and green in the new plastic, each with a moderate dome to them and they've been decent for the most part, but not quite as stable as I'd like (and not near as stable as the older flat predators).

I have a couple of new opaque green flat Z preds that are among the most stable ones I own. They are both also only 165. They both have a very high parting line.

I have a pretty new red 172g Z that is really flat and extremely overstable. I've been trying to browse the stock of the local dg store, but I haven't found another one like it (they don't have any more red ones sadly).

Here's a PLH comparison to my couple of years old orange Z which has some dome on it:

I've been thinking about getting some Preds to replace my 1st run cfr pds. Wish I could get the old ones easily.

They are really not that hard to get a hold of. You just gotta look a bit.

Also the new ones actually throw more like the CFR PDs to me as they are a bit straighter and have better forward finish.

So I got in a Z and ESP predators today and I just have one question... Why the hell do I stop throwing these every time I put them back in the bag?

Dunno either. I aced this morning with one on the second round with them back.

It sounds crazy but I've been throwing Z Predators for so long that I think I am missing out on something else. I'll put a new disc in the Z Pred spot for awhile and when I come back to the Pred I'm always thinking why did I quit throwing the Predator. I've had the same problem with Tbirds, Rocs, and Wizards at various times.

I've done that with preds a few times since I've been throwing them for years. Nothing ever sticks in the spot though.

sorry that was a badly phrased post. The preds have been in the bag forever. Things like firebirds and xXxs come and go.

My preds are my most dependable disc, I totally trust it to do what I intended to do with it.
