More Stable Sword?

Postby AbstractLogic » Sun Oct 21, 2012 8:56 pm

Hello guys, I found a sword about 2 weeks ago at a local 9-hole (no idea why it was lost there, only a few holes break 200 feet.) and I went ahead and bagged it to try out. Before this, my go-to drivers have been my QOLF and QOLS and occasionally my GL Flow for max D and i was getting 330-370 with these discs so I never thought to look at higher speed drivers. Anyways I figured I'd play around with it and I am beginning to really like the disc and It's allowed me to break 400' on a good rip. The only complaint I have with it is that in a moderate headwind it's too big of a gamble and was wondering if anyone has had any experience with a disc in the sword's power range that is able to be thrown in the wind.

It depends on the speed and swirling gusts if a 175 Star Destroyer can handle enough wind for you. It is better than the Sword and a 175 Boss is a little more overstable in a headwind and if that is not enough a Force can take most winds including storms and is much more overstable than the Boss.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

Sparkle Quasar, IMO, it's like a Boss but better.

With that distance I'd say GL Villain, Optos can be OS as hell.

Even though i haven't thrown Villains all of the above suggestions should work.

If I could resurrect this real quick - do current run Quasars work as more stable compliments to Swords? What about the most stable Swords (high PLH and dome)?

Not sure if I should be looking for FR Quasars or current runs.

If you like the mold you should pick one up for yourself so that when you return that lost one you found you wont have a vacant slot in your bag.
