Least OS Felon?

Hi all. I replaced my worn in 11x FBs with the Felon, and while I don't feel that the Felon is lacking in any way, I am sorely sorely missing the ability to throw powered down/ finesse shots with a speed 9 OS control driver.

My FBs were BEAT. Very beat, but still did not flip for me with a proper release into headwind.

Essentially I want a Felon I can throw at 40% that will go straight BEFORE fading like they do at 80+%. Still looking for that big skip, but I really need this shot back now that I am done with physical therapy and just can't throw as far yet.

I have felt up a 167 of a friends, and it felt so nice and gummy due to the lighter weight. Is this my solution? Or do I just need to throw my 174 at some trees? Haha.

EDIT: I couldn't find anything via search, though I may not have looked hard enough. I figure others will be looking for similar answers though.

Maybe a beefy C-line PD while you're working on beating in your Felon.

I've read this a couple times but don't comprehend. If you throw an OS disc at lower speeds it will be more overstable, correct?

If I crank on my felon (flat fingerprinty first run) it will go straight with zero turn and a good fade. I can also throw it 50% to bend hard around obstacles real well too, thumbers, flicks and big skips as well.

He's saying he wants a felon that he can power down without it being a meathook.


Good luck with that.

If it has dome, even slight dome, you can try flattening it completely. On a Felon, it won't really affect the hss or lss a whole lot, but it will make it a little more workable.

Your other option is to get a deco dye and throw it into some trees.

Just grab for another disc brotha, use the felon for OS duties (both full power and powered down). Suspect, verdict depending on length.

Good luck man

No, it makes sense. He's recovering so he can't throw as hard. Probably just loves the mold and doesn't want to have to switch.

You're looking for a different disc though, brotha. It is gonna take a while to beat the stability out of that. If you do it though, at least take video and document how long it took, haha.

Get one and beat it. I have one that is dead straight late fade at 75%. If I throw it hard it will flip up, turn and fade. I don't throw it into the wind.
