Super overstable dx/equivalent driver.

Looking for a driver that is overstable in dx type plastic. I have a big tournament coming up and need it for a water hole. I really don't want to have to buy a premium plastic disc and throw it in the drink.

For a few rounds atleast. Once it hits a handful of trees it will lose some of that stability.

True that. Thanks. And the higher the PLH the more stability right?

^Yup.

You may also tune the disc by flexing the outside rim upward after it has lost some stability. It emulates a high PLH and adds (over)stability to a base plastic. The reason they lose stability so quickly is due to the outside rim edge (PLH) being bent down and lower than it was after a tree hit.

DX firebirds bomb. That was my first dedicated tomahawk disc. After beating it for months it straghtened out. Still stable though. More hyzer gives more/sooner fade
