P-PD is not as stable as I figured, you were right brod, overlaps with river. Need more throws to figure it out. I was hoping it would be more like a starfire with glide.

Scratch all of that, there's some overlap and I'm adding two discs in and taking some out. won't need that new bag right now.

Drivers

Star Firebird 173- Thumbers, Tommys, FH, some flex shots, rarely throw it BH
P-PD 175- replacing my MaxD drivers and River for now. just testing it out, wish it would stay at it's current stability cuz it's perfect. hit 470' yesterday with a slight tailwind which is crazy for me.
CAL TL 175- flat/beefy, straight with hefty fade, very consistent disc
CFR Champ TL 172- beat in to perfection, control driver
Pro Leopard 170- turnover driver

Mids

Star Mako 180- gummy, workhorse mid, shots that need to be worked, annys
FR Oj Axis 180- long mid drives, downhill shots, gap hitter, straight shooter

Putters

Pro Pig 175 - new/super beefy, short right to lefts, upshots, flex shots
Eclipse S Ion 171 - short drives, approaches/long putts
S Ion 173 - main putter inside 40'

Get yourself a lightweight S-PD (167-170), starts out a little more OS than the P-PD, but after about 3 or 4 rounds will break-in nice for a long time.

does it have the same amount of glide?

i'm not really sure it'll end up staying, it's very similar to my Opto River which I love and I know that will keep it's stability much longer. the PD is just a tad bit faster so I can get it out there farther with the same amount of control.

The best P-PDs are the domey stiff ones IMO. They hold on to their stability pretty well.

The S-PD are nothing like the River. I carry two rivers in the bag and also carry PDs. The PD is a very workable mild overstable driver. For me it flies alot like an Orc with more fade, or a much longer Eagle-X. I tried the P-PDs and you're right they overlap the river alot, but the S and C PDs are much different.

In that case, if you think the P-PDs will overlap too much with your Rivers, then you might want to do this -----------V

Might do that, I wanted something more starfirish with better glide in the first place.

So I've picked up a 175 S-PD and a 175 SOLF in addition to my 175 P-PD and my 171 Opto River. Still getting to know these discs but from first impressions I really love the SOLF, it's so easy to control.

The S-PD does have that extra stability I was looking to add to my lineup but since I've completely changed my mind and dropped my wraith and archon for now, I want something a bit more flexible in its lines.

The P-PD was great from the first throw but it's already losing its stability and I can tell it'll soon be something I'll have to hyzer flip or use as a long turnover driver. I think I can pull those shots off with my River and it'll keep it's flight characteristics for much longer.

So I'm having some serious indecision problems with my drivers, if you couldn't tell already. I like all of them but there is overlap so two must go. Basically it's SOLF or S-PD and River or P-PD. Any input that might sway me either way?
