I also had an alarmingly huge difference in PLH between my two AOs, so I'm not surprised to see varying reports on the amount of fade. I threw my flat AO anywhere from 290-350' and it was dead straight.
Forgive me for asking, but what is PLH? Pot limit holdem?
Is the AO you're throwing pretty flat? To me, it feels like the ones with more dome are more OS. Or is that just common knowledge?

Parting Line Height: where the underside of the wing/rim meets the flight plate. I think PLH typically has more of an impact on stability than dome, but I was really surprised at how much straighter my flattened AO was than when it was domey. Did not expect to see such a drastic difference, and I checked the PLH, it didn't change.

What is PLH, and how does it work (from DGR)

Given two discs with all else being equal, the one with the higher PLH will be more overstable

Just picked one up from community, great price. Thanks for the heads up.

As for the link in the OP -- I can't believe there hasn't been any chatter about the DX bottom stamped star discs... those look sweet too. I'll definitely be getting a couple destroyers, maybe even a couple wraiths and I haven't thrown those in years.

Don't throw any of those discs, so no chatter from me.
