I'm the same on L to R. If I have a pure L to R crosswind, my best golf D comes from throwing overstable plastic on an anny. Not ridiculously overstable discs, but decently overstable, like a force or trespass. The L to R wind holds the disc over for a large portion of the flight, counteracting the natural tendency to fade out, but the discs still fight out of it at the end. Some of my longest distance throws have come this way.

Its Innova, Some 135 g Bosses are understable. Some are beefy crazy overstable meathooks. I have more experience with Destroyers...its the shame of the whole thing. Need to purchase 15 to find 1 totally understable, 1 totally overstable, and everything in between. $15.99 for 40% less plastic.

Yup. Well, I do better that way, but still can't throw as far right to left wind where it keeps my understable drivers from turning too hard.

Not so much that the disc sucks but it just doesn't do what I was looking for in it. I already have plenty of other discs that are stable to overstable (Nuke, Boss, King, Tresspass, etc). I was hoping for something more like a fresh Vulcan before it gets beat in and is too flippy to trust.
I got to throw my D4 today and that's the exact thing I was noticing today. Mine is red 172 first run, and my first throw I put a lot of hyzer expecting it to flip up, and it just went straight left (RHBH) but once I threw it some more I really started to like it. Throw it hard and flat it was flying a lot like my trespass, but my trusty seasoned trespass had more turn and the D4 had a solid fade and big skip. One of the holes I was throwing them both on is a dead straight 416 footer, and the trespass was getting there on a full flight and glide, the D4 was getting there because of the speed and didn't quite have the glide. I think I'll like my stable D4 once I beat it in a bit, but I still want to find one of these flippy bombers to pair with this one.

A friend let me throw his D1 and D4 discs into a headwind of about 15 mph. Both went the same distance for me, just different lines. I threw the D4 with a slight hyzer and the D1 with a little anhyzer.

I like both of them, but my noodle arm would get more use from the D4. I'd really like to try the D3. If it flies like I imagine it would, it would be a fun disc to own.
