Plastic Stability - Your experiences

I've caught the Trilogy-itus and have been trying to research people's experience with the plastics and their actual stability differences. It seems there are some discrepancies in what is advertised/assumed as opposed to what is actually experienced on the course/field/what-have-you.

I have a few specific discs I'm curious about. Please feel free to add your own questions, answers, experiences, speculations, or whatever you feel like contributing to the discussion. I'd really like to have a place to come to when researching Dynamic.

I'm curious about the following Discs
  • Truth; Lucid vs Fuzion vs Hybrid
  • Renegade; Lucid vs Fuzion
  • Tresspass; Lucid vs Fuzion

plastic itself doesn't always dictate stability. More often than not its due to X plastic being a different run than Y and when new you find MOST discs to fly fairly similar. If someone comes here and says their whatever plastic had greater or less stability than another I would take that advice lightly.

Generally any clear plastics should be a little more OS and tougher than opaque/solid colored ones and the mixes or recycled blends tend to be less durable and stable.

I'm aware that different runs do produce different stabilities. I'm just not familiar with Dynamic, and I'm looking for input on their discs. That's what this forum is for, isn't it?

So, when Dynamic states on their website that Fuzion is more stable than Lucid and when you (and your experiences/opinion) say clear plastic is more OS, what am I left to think? Other places say clear Dynamic plastic is less stable.

As for my other thread reply, my questions were never answered. The best existing thread was almost a year old, and I considered having an updated place that people could discuss their experiences.

yeah and when no one responds all I can do if give you the information out there! Maybe you rather would have liked your thread to die off into the mix of it all.

Like I said you are not going to just get a simple answer and the best way to know how a disc flies is to throw it.

It's hard to answer this question definitively when disc flight varies from run to run, those making claims often are doing it from a sample size of 1, and those relaying their experience could be huge torque monkeys and full of it. That doesn't even begin to mention that a lot of people will say a disc is more/less stable than another, and there's no bias in the post to determine whether they mean neutral or beefy.

That said, it seems (from my limited experience) like BioFuzion is the beefiest, with Lucid in second, and Fuzion in third.

Paging SteezeOG!

I've thrown mostly Lucid so can't help much. My inclination is to agree with tbird888.

I believe EMac follows this as well but also notes that BioFuzion beats in a little faster and loses that new/fresh beef with a little use. I also think he has said in the answer man videos that moonshine discs are generally the most overstable flying. Steeze will be here soon to correct us all.
