Default The Stability of Captain America's Shield

I'm watching a video called Marvel's Avengers: The Secret Behind Strong Characters - Frame By Frame where there's a clip shown from the first Captain America film of Rogers throwing his shield straight on into the camera. It can be seen shortly after about 1:04 in the video.

I got a kick out of this clip because he's hyzer-flipping the bajeezus out of his shield from what looks like a fore-handed throw.

Looks about the same as when I forehand a Z Nuke SS hahaha.

Speaking of which... Thug, how are those Z Premium misprints (including the Nuke SS's) that you got a while back?

As far as Captain America's shield, it's obviously why the PDGA prohibits metals. An alloy like this obviously has stability that can change mid flight.

I would love to have a vibranium (or any reality based metal) mini with the Captain America shield stamp.

Oh man, I am having a hell of a time trying to figure out the CryZtal Nuke SSs. Sometimes they fly stable, sometimes they will flip, sometimes they will hold an anny into a worm burner, sometimes they will decide to fight out of an anny, they seem to have minds of their own. They do bomb when they decide that they want to bomb though hahaha. Long story short, they are unpredictable and hyper-nose-angle-sensitive. I am sure I will have them figured out someday, but today is not that day hahahaha.

The absence of an anhyzer release angle contradicts that notion. When I think of a torque monkey, I think of an obnoxious anny angle and muscling the disc. I suppose that is just my opinion hahaha.
