and in the raging head winds my force was more consistent and reliable. in cross winds was impressed how well it handled them, the day i was testing it out there were 15 mph constant wind and 35 mph gusts according to weather channel app. and it did as well as any disc was going to do, that said in the cross winds it wasnt much longer than the force for me.
I dont throw a million miles or anything but on golf lines i can throw 380-400 pretty regularly with my PD's for reference, Im not certain its too much disc for me or anything, maybe i just need more time with it but at this moment it doesnt fit my game or any need i have
I don't outright disagree with anything in your post, yet the Quasar is a staple in my bag...I guess it's all about expectations. Personally, I really like the Boss, it just changes character so quickly if it hits a little too much headwind. A fairly stable to overstable Boss can flip like a Valk or an Orc for me somewhere in between a 10-20mph headwind...In less wind than that I think it is Innova's finest max D mold. The Quasar shares most of it's positive qualities(with a little less glide imo), yet is less nose angle sensitive, less likely to come up and over from a hyzer release, and much more reliable in it's turn and fade behavior.
I'm not sure it's fair to compare a disc you are testing against a trusted favorite in unusually strong headwinds. Confidence is a big part of success in strong wind as is knowing your discs. It would be hard to hit it right with any new disc...I think the Force flies more like a Teebird in the wind, being more HSS and less LSS. The Quasar is more like an Eagle, easier to turn over and still get to fade, or flip up from hyzer and cruise straight before biting hard. In that slot, I prefer the Quasar's line and faster speed.
