Question Westside Giant

I recently picked up the westside giant because I don't have a single disc with a similar. flight pattern. The numbers on the disc are 13/5/1/4 if I'm not mistaken. That seems pretty overstable to me, but I haven't had a chance to throw it yet. I am just wanting to know people's thoughts on thus disc, and what kind of shots you like to use this disc for. Thanks!

Very overstable for me. I carry one in VIP Plastic for long hyzer shots, spike hyzers, the rare occasional forehand or overhand shot, a very strong headwind shot.

Consistently overstable in VIP and I've used it a lot for medium to max distance hyzers (200ft+), overhand shots, and headwinds. My most memorable throw with the Giant was into a headwind on hole 18 at Hanson Hills, which is a 600ft downhill par 4 on a ski hill. I threw it flat and hard about 10 feet off the ground and the Giant kept a super straight line with about a 2-3 fade at the end. Bird. I was so impressed that I threw a Sword for comparison on the same hole with the same form and couldn't believe the difference. That's when I knew it had a place in my bag.

Such a great disc. One of my go to discs, especially in a head wind. If you get tp plastic it can turn into an extremely straight flier. I also find it to be one of the most comfortable discs to throw for the wider rim high speed discs.

It's beefy!! I use a VIP for monster forehands where I probably over torque too much at times. 168 Tournament has become a great fast super stable BH driver for me. Let me know if you don't like it
