buy a mdeium first as they have great grip and are the most stable imo. 172ish is a great weight

I'm not sure where you get your information from, but if you check page 404 of the " Ask Dave D. " thread, on the PDGA website, and read post # 12095, you will find this statement from the guy who MADE the discs.
And I quote;

It has a somewhat sunken flight plate that give a solid lower profile grip, and a very straight flight as oppose to other BBs which tend to be a lot more over stable.
Hey lookit that, you actually learned something rather than spewing heresay.

The yeti isn't drastically less stable than other BBs. A concave/flat top on drivers that are cooled improperly are generally more stable because the nose of the wing is pulled up. See the Flick. My point was don't go applying an Innova disc to a Vibram. Differently plastics and molding techniques.

Loving my Super Firm Vibram Open Ridge more and more each time I play.
I'm kicking myself for not picking up a VO Ibex...

When do you think we will see the '12 VO fundraiser discs?
