I found that flat s lines are less hss and get squirrelly as they break in while the domier ones have more hss and lss and keep their stability longer and wear more gradually without the sharp change in stability.

oops, missed this post. well i guess late is better than never, especially since now I have a few more months of throwing FDs to let them sink in.

I throw the super stiff and flat 2nd runs, light green and 175g to be exact. Typical unrestricted distance ranging between 320 and 380, more than that is PD territory.
If i was being a real stickler, I'd give my new CFDs a 7|4.5|-.2|2.25 rating. Next to no high speed turn, just barely a hint of a rock-up early out of the hand, but they still fight to get back towards the left (RHBH). My new SPDs act more like a 9.5|5|.5|3. I should state for comparison's sake that I have a beaten in SFD that acts like a 7|7|-3|.5 and it is crazy long.
Thrown identically, the CFD only gets maybe 75 percent of the distance as my SPD. PDs want to fade more nose down/neutral but CFDs will go nose up, and SFDs behave nothing like the CFDs during their minimal fade.
Overall, I'd say that PDs are more of a power driver (go figure, right?) whereas FDs are speed-sensitive and like more finesse. This makes them a very, very good pairing.

Has anyone got a 3rd run C-FD? If so, could you tell where we can place an order? I could find it anywhere so far...

I'm pretty sure discgolfvalues has them. I'd give them a call.

Ordered a pair of 165 FD Jackals, a flat C and a domey S. Squeezed in a few field tosses after work, and both discs performed as advertised. The domey SFD is straight and sneaky-long (closer to a River), and the flat CFD is beefy and considerably shorter. Looking forward to throwing the FDs on the course this weekend.

Are the domey CFDs closer to the SFDs, or are all the CFDs pretty beefy? In other words, does dome or plastic determine how the FD flies? Iím not sure that the flat CFD has a place in my bag, but I would love a slightly-more-stable version of the domey SFD in C plastic.

in my experience, the domey cFDs fly like new, domey sFDs. It's the flat cFDs that are more high speed stable and less glidey. I don't like how the flat sFDs fly at all, so I don't carry any of those.

Victor - thank you! Sounds like I need to confirm dome when ordering FDs. I agree with you about the flat sFDs - not what I am looking for.
