I hope to high heaven that you just listed them from understable to overstable. The way I read it was that the OP wanted the overstable discs listed first. If this is indeed the case, then you just told them that a Cheetah is more overstable than a Firebird and I might have to pull your disc golfing privileges.

My guess, starting with most overstable:

Firebird
Katana
Beast
Cheetah
Monarch

Being that I don't throw a Katana or Beast anymore, and have never thrown a Monarch or Cheetah, you should take that with a grain of salt. Or you should ignore what we have to say and just go throw those discs. You listed them pretty specifically, which tells me that you already have them.

depends how used your DX plastic is as well as how far you generally can throw a driver-- if all are brand new then:
Firebird, Katana, Beast, Monarch, Cheetah

If all your discs are super beat-in and used then:
Katana, Beast, Firebird, Monarch, Cheetah

Over-stable also means a disc wants to get to the ground faster during fade-- try not to think of stability as just going left right or straight...

The plastic makes a big difference in stability as well. In order of most to least stable is Champion, Star, Pro, and DX.

Except that dx is the most overstable out of the box, it just breaks in much faster than the others.

Technically... True stability is a factor of wind performance. How far you can throw (speed stability) would fall under OE (operator error). Otherwise you can't standardize a method of comparison.

yeah in regards to manufacturing but if a person cannot even throw 300 feet then they won't notice a big difference between stability of discs which are designed to fly at a superior skill level(generally dictated by speed rating) not into a certain wind speed...?

Nothing I've bought has been that way.
