However my distance sidearm disc is a pro Wraith for all out distance, for more controlled distance a star SL.
or if you like Discraft I found the Surge worked well for me too.

The problem is that most discs flips over. The only disc I have which never flips over is Discsport Flick. I sometimes use Innova Boss which I can throw a bit longer but I find it unpredictable and if I throw it flat it will definitley flip.
So I want a stable disc like Flick but something that have more glide and goes a little longer. Any tips?
I usually throw the Flick about 80 meters (260 feet) and the Boss (if it doesn't flip) around 100 meters (330 feet).
So what you're looking isn't an overstable disc at all, but a truly neutral one. One which doesn't like to turn over or fade. =)Mark Ellis wrote:Overstable and maximum glide are sort of opposites. Overstability limits glide by its nature. As soon as an overstable disc starts to slow down it hyzers sharply into the ground. Of course the more overstable the disc, the sooner it hyzers out. So what you (and all the rest of us too) are searching for is that compromise where a disc is overstable enough for our needs (won't flip over or will fight headwind or will hyzer hard at the finish) but still goes a long way. Since we are all different: form, power, flutter, etc., the perfect compromise disc will be different for each of us.
