Stable control driver
 
So I have been throwing a PD as my stable control driver, and while it is a great disc and will most likely stay in my bag, it flips a little more then I was hoping for. Ive actually been using it more for long hazer-flip to slight turnover shots. I have one in both S and G plastic ( 172,174) and they are pretty similar.

Im looking for something I can really crank flat and it will stay dead straight with fade at the end. Are C PDs much more overstable? Or should I look into something in the Pred/Firebird/Monster category?

Side note: i throw Resisters also, but looking for something with a little more D

C-PD's are more overstable, definitely. Or for same speed and very similar feel, QOLF.

I carry C-TDs, and I think they are gonna be replaced with my S-PDs, especially once they begin to break in more. Maybe ill try a C-PD before going to another mold, but have been very interested in a predator type disc

MVP tesla.

Faster PD really. Proton/neutron/plasma plastic all fly similar at max wt. Fission will be US the
lighter you go with 150s being stable.

I bag a volt (pd) and tesla is my volt with a little more d/headwind flighting ability and some skip action.

From the research I've done on the tesla it doesn't seem to have as much HSS but faster compared to the PD is this true in your experience?

Get yourself a fresh C-PD /thread.

Tesla doesnt really turn, at all. Even the stable proto plasma with dome had great HSS just less fade.

Only tesla without the HSS are sub 150g fissions. Not sure where it says they turn but not my experience at all. Its a workable OS control driver though not stupid beef. Id dont even throw anything more OS and max at around 400' with volts/tesla.

Super flat tesla (concave almost) can be pretty OS-- Even once seasoned they dont really turn but fade gets softer.

Yep...and all mine(3) are. They'll stand up into a headwind, but no visible turn whatsoever.

The seasoned 167 Neutron seemed to stay straight a little line longer compared with my fresh 157 Protons, but I did not get in enough throws to be sure. Scuffed-up Neutron definitely felt grippier than Proton with 15F temperature and snow on the ground.

Thanks Aim! :)

Matched one of them up to a bud's Tesla on the course, and he was like "oh wow!" My Tesla's have been relegated to exclusively headwind duty, and they shine in that role.

From tesla thread^ good luck in your new disc search!

Thanks Think ill pick up a C-PD first then go from there. growing more interested in the tesla though, as I'm a big fan of MVP/Axiom
