Default Upgrading Disc Speed and Stabilities

When you start to see an overstable wander pattern in the discs you are throwing because you are throwing them above their speed how do you choose new discs that will fit your style? When you upgrade do you just go one speed higher than the one you are throwing (Innova Discs are my prefference). Do you choose discs that are more overstable? I am thowing a Discraft AvengerSS and it is starting to show this pattern. When I throw the Innova Leapord3 it does not go as fart, but it does fly its characteristics.

The avenger ss is really flippy, as I mentioned in the same topic you posted in the bag thread.

Just learn how to work it on higher lines, hyzerflip or get a different disc of the same speed with more stability. If you're throwing a leopard3 and can't get it to turn more than the numbers indicate, then you probably don't need a higher speed yet. Try a ppd. It's discmania, but still basically innova.

I don't think innova has anything in that speed range that would be a relatively mild step up from the avenger ss but would be still somewhat durable like the pro plastic pd from what I've seen.

Thanks: (1)

Right?

I guess they could try a valk or something. But a pro valk would get flippy real fast just like the avenger ss.

I'm a bit interested to know what an overstable wander pattern is.

My guess is that the OP has understable and overstable mixed up.

I would suggest that the OP get a TeeBird though, same speed as the Leo3 that is more OS. A Discmania TD or TD2 might be close to an A SS though I don't know how understable their A SS is.
