Sorry if it has already been covered, but several 'searches' have given me zero results. My simple question is..... If you have two of the same mold in the same plastic and similar weights and one is flat and one is domey........which is more likely to be more overstable and why?

Depends a lot on the mold, some go either way.

Thanks, Mashnut.......to be more specific.... I have 2 champ orcs.... And was just wondering which one (domey or flat) would have more fade at the end of a flat RHBH throw

Different plastic.
Pro plastic is a DX upgrade with more grip, ProLine was the name they used for Champion plastic, after they stopped calling it C.E., and before they called it Champion.

Either.

There are great examples of overstable discs that are domey, like first run ESDS Destroyers, and also overstable flat tops, like 11X Firebirds, Eagle X's, and Gazelles.

Domey, by the laws of physics, should create a greater difference in air pressure between the top and bottom of the disc, generating more lift and glide than its flat counterpart, which would also cause more high speed turn, or less stability, but parting line height is usually a much better way of determining differences in stability between discs of the same mold.

They domey one should have more overall stability. The dome on a lot of molds tend to accompany a higher PLH causing the disc to be more stable. Dome doesn't always mean a disc will be more stable, but if you compare the two discs, I'll would bet that domey one has a taller PLH.

When playing casual, we play everything a par 3 with max throws at 6. Is it normal to ever have a max number of throws?

I have never played like that, nor heard of it. Elaborate?

We play everything a par 3(tourney rules as I've been told) and the worst you can do is 6 "strokes". I'm guessing my brother took it from our putt-putt days.
I think it messes with the game, but it kind helps out the 1 or 2 people we play with that aren't great...

So you can only have 6 strokes on each hole?
