At the clinic I went to last week, all the pros there spoke about how valuable understable discs can be, but that people don't use them enough.
Remember too that they said that a lot of people need to 'flip' their stable to overstable discs when starting out to get them to go further than they would if they could throw straight with good form. Because of this, people pickup bad habits. IMO, I think a lot of times its a form issue for people that translates into 'flippy' more than a disc actually is flippy. When they start to develop their mechanics to get discs up to speed, but still have those form issues, stable to understable discs take off.

I know a certain person who had to become aware of their tendency of rolling their wrist out when throwing before they could really understand that it wasn't necessarily the disc that was flippy more than it was a form issue from rolling. That's why slower, neutral discs like Comets are recommended to fix form issues. If you can't throw a Comet straight, then the problem is likely you more than it is the disc.

I was gonna post the cover of Neil Young's Rust Never Sleeps, because I remember huge mock amps on stage, but they were marked "Fender."

Good thing I didn't make ours a Marshall... that would have been an embarrassing realization. Honest to gosh I never made the MSt/Marshall connection... picked Fender for the Americana vibe.

I'm rockin at 69 twin reverb currently.

Anyways, back on topic.

Given the pretty hard fade the volt has at 350 ft, I'm excited to pair it with the amp for a true understable compliment. For my current distance potential, I think this disc may actually be somewhat useful to me. For bigger arms though, I think Mike C's videos speak for themselves.

It's going to be an understable fairway driver from what I've heard.
