add the c line and you got a hell of FD line up.
i found my 170 c line is a hell of a wind fighter too. flies like my 173 s does in no wind.
No, the S should be OK, but I was just thinking that using FDs like many use PDs would be nice. Out of the box turnovers (P), understable line-shaper (S) and more stable line-shaper (C) sounds tasty. I also really just like Pro plastic.

That is kind of what I was hoping for. With my shoulder issues, I can't always get the PD's up to speed. I can see their value in covering all the shots with just 3 discs, but I just am not always up to the task, unfortunately. I can usually get FD's up and dancing easily. Since I got my C-FD's, I am seeing much the same PD potential and a Pro version would be icing on the FD cake. I'd probably have to get 5 of them.

you can def. do that. get a c line
my 170 c is all the 35% stable inbounds gives it, plus the turn it does not have.
im picking up a S 170 for my turnovers and flip slow turns, using my 173S for rope straight and 170C for fades. i think i would have been better off with 165ish C, to get a little more distance im used to in my S. come march and ill drop the teebirds i hardly use anymore and get a nice OS stag.

I was also thinking about getting either a S or C line FD and tuning the crap out of it to make a it an US dream. pro beats in better, but the same results can come from bending the thing.

ive been tuning my c line relentlessly and its still very stiff but not so slick. in my experience the easiest thing to do is get a S 4/5 grams less or more than your current S for turnover or fade. i think even light c line will be more stable than almost any S line. at some point ill pick up a 165 c and check just how different they seem to be.

I've got a baby arm, so I am going with S and C both at 167, hoping they will complement each other well.

No baby arm, but it turns out that way. I have a 166 S, a 167 C and a 171 C. S line is money on most shots but annies, still turns out before I am wanting, so it needs a bit more beating. I just spent some time with the 167 C on Friday, actually the first real time I have spent with it. Way more stable than the S line. That was what was making me think of the PD's. The flight was about a -1, 3ish...and fading into a strong wind even. It was just a tad less fade than my new, 2nd run C-PD. Makes me wonder what the heavier and beefier 171 C is going to fly like. Its next on the try list. All 3 of mine are the exact same in PLH, dome...everything. Only differences are weight and color. If this 171 C is a bit more OS than the 167 C, I might could drop my C-PD completely. I'd have the same flight, same distance or more and more control.

No, I have it in hand....that is how I know it feels beefier than my others. I just haven't done more than fondle it. End of year work rush and yet another shoulder mishap has kept me busy and sidelined for a long time. Got out to play last Friday and threw the Amp and 167 C-FD almost exclusively. Next time out I'll have the 171 with me.

So my CFD had definitely replaced my champ leopard but my SFD isn't exactly filling the role my pro leopard had before. That nice slow hyzer flip isn't in my SFDs bag o tricks yet...maybe it just needs to wear more...anyone have issues with the SFD going just too straight at low speeds and not moving laterally enough?
