Where are you guys finding these stable amps? I threw a buddy's amp and that thing was like a light star leopard. I wouldn't have considered it a speed 9 or stable. I was able to release on a steep hyzer angle, rip it way up in the air, and let it flip and ride an anny line to the ground. I also tried throwing it flat at about 20' high to get it to stable out and not turn as much, and the thing flipped to a roller and rolled out to near 375'. I'm thinking that I may need to give another one of these a shot, maybe I threw a wierd one....

^^The FR Amps are much more stable than that. I've thrown my FR 300ft, and it hardly turns at all. I've gotta get me a new Amp so I can see how flippy they are.

I found mine via preorder from community discs. I drank the first run kool aid.

^^ What is a "good one?" Flippy? I personally love mine, but would also like a flippier one to accompany it.

Good question.
I have taken the Amp out of my bag in favor of a GL Fury, and, are any Amps available in the 166g range (The lightest I had was 170ish)/?

I've never thrown an Amp that was even in the same ballpark as a Ch TB. Also, even my FR white Amp which was one of the more HSS run broke in quickly to develop a characteristic turn pretty much however I throw it. So I don't know what to think about that. The best advice I can give to avoid an unusually HSS Amp would be to go with a primary color instead of black/white/pastel (which is really color + white pellet).

My favorite driver right now is one of my original tester Amps (red 173). I've purposefully tried to beat it in and now it's a thing of beauty that I can finesse turns with. It still doesn't have the glide of a Valk, but for shaping lines across conditions and ranging it is the best US control driver I've ever possessed.

FWIW I opined to the MVP bros that I thought the P Amps should be made no more and maybe a little less stable than the Ns. That would make it easy to know you are buying a turny one.

as some have said, white seems to be commonly more on the +side of stable. they are flat right out the box. the other 4 amps i have, have some dome to them, and flip like they should. the white one is like, shock/resistor flat, and is just a super slow motion turner for me.

This is what happened to me. I have a white one that is a lot more stable than what I was expecting.
