DX Beast - Way Flippy

I threw my brand new 172 g DX Beast yesterday for the first time. The ratings don't even come close for me. It is rated 10, 5,-2, 2. Fore me it is more like 6, 0, -5,0. This thing flips hard no matter what angle I throw it. I can throw it at a 45 degree hyzer angle with a tailwind and it will turn over and start rolling after 100 feet. At least now I have a good roller in my bag.

Just as a reference, I can throw a similar weight roadrunner with a controlled turn and it will always come back and fade left for me. I throw Vibram Lace and Trak with a slight hyzer and they ride the rail with a slight fade at the end.

Has anyone else experienced this? I have searched this topic, but since plastic is always changing, etc. I would rather get some feedback today rather than read what people experienced 3 years ago. Thank you.

A lot if comes down to the mold which is pretty inconsistent in general and plastic.

Check out some champion beasts if you want a overstable flight. MOST of the time with innova baseline discs are the least overstable flying and more likely to turn more than designed or easier.

Sometimes innova will give unique flight numbers to different plastic runs like you see with the tern in champ/star. Its pretty common with 9+ speed discs to have some PLH variance.

Sounds like a freak to me. Since you can throw other understable discs properly, it doesn't seem to be your form. I'd bet if you picked up a bunch of other DX Beasts they'd probably fly alright. I know personally every DX Beast I've thrown has been nowhere near -5 in high speed turn when new.

Yea, freaky for sure. A DX Beast is understable, but not nearly THAT understable. It should bomb for you in a tailwind, and be an easy hyzer flipper for long turnovers. IMO, the DX Beast is Innova's best driver. (Speaking as a noodle arm, of course)

It is Innova. Might be a misprint / stamp.

DX is flippy.

Is your Roadrunner Champ or Star? Champ plastic is pretty beefy, especially compared to DX.

Thank you all for the feedback. My roadrunner is Champ plastic and seems pretty consistent. For now I may stick with the roadrunner as my turnover disc, and keep the Beast as a roller. This fills a spot in my bag that has been empty - was waiting to beat in one of my other drivers into a roller but since I can use this one out of the box, all is good.

^this x1000. Not to mention the waxy feel of the recent runs. I'm not a fan.

I have a mixed bag, but I am becoming a fan of my Vibram medium discs in the warm weather. The grip just feels right to me.

Not really always true at all tho. I threw a DX destoryer that was hilariously OS. Its more about PLH.
