Why do you have understable discs in your bag?
 
So my current bag is
Aviar
Zone
Roc3
Gator
Teebird
Firebird
Wraith
Tern

Which seemed perfectly fine and balanced to me. It wasn't until recently that I lined up for a shot and went "man, I bet an understable mid would be perfect here". It's making me think of making additions to my bag to accommodate.

Do you carry any understable discs in your bag? If so, how many and why?

I'm interested to see how you guys use them.

I think an understable mid is the most useful understable type of disc to have. Understable discs go farther than overstable discs of a similar speed, so an understable mid can encroach on some fairway drivers, and have zero fade. Plus you can power down an understable mid and it will just fly stable/straight, without really any fade...it'll give you the "just longer than a putter" shots with easy power. Plus you can throw anhyzers with them and know they won't pan out too much.

For fairway drivers and distance drivers understable is for different lines and extra distance, but I find they can be more finicky because of the speed/power requirement, as well as they will always want to fade when they slow down, to an extent.

I'd say pick up a Comet, you are already throwing a Roc3 so it will feel familiar in hand and will give you a great pairing.

First off, I live at 7k feet. Disc act much more over stable at my elavation. So a disc like a hatchet or a Tern fly much more stable.

Anyway, I love taking the unusual route, I'm always checking out the huge anhyzer around the trees.

I carry a Mamba, beat P-PD, beat Pro Destroyer, and a Leo3 all of which I use for shots where a FH isn't practical, the disc needs to stay right (RHBH) with little to no fade, I need a straight shot through a tunnel, tailwinds, or for Max D BH. I think that a Comet or a Wombat would work though a VCobra might also work (needs some seasoning though).

I have an understable judge, ghost, and pPD, as well as a couple of terns (only for distance) and a patriot (and sometimes a Mongoose, mainly for rollers)

Being able to throw hyzer flips is invaluable to my game. As far as turnover shots go, sometimes it's just easier to manage a certain type of right turning line than with a sidearm or flex shot. They all have their place, but using understable discs is just another useful tool to have. Much easier to throw a backhand roller with an understable disc too, and rollers are definitely part of my game.

They turn the other way. Pretty useful.

i carry several beat in judges for all sorts of shots, a hard one is good for driving, but i have a newer one if i need to rip it a little harder and it always fades just slightly to the right at the end, but usually i just bag a beat in kc pro roc, a beat in champ mako3 (its my go-to mid and always beats in fast), and a newer Z meteor, the roc and the mako will hold any line you set them on and but will punish a power shot if your wrist isnt tight on the line you want, but the comet will hold a low straight line like a champ and will barely fade at all. i say just get a couple more roc3s and beat one in more than the other, as long as you remember which one is beat in, you should never have a problem again.
