lOW GLIDE H20?
 
I'm looking for a water disc with some decent wt, a driver not a putter that has low glide.
The Dragon is too light for me & the Wahoo is a good one, but I need one with low glide for those windy days. Thanks!

Overstable, moderate weights discs that float don't really exsist.

It's either super lightweight blizzard discs or lighter dx plastic that will never feel OS.

my personal advice is find a disc which is easy to replace and will fly how you want but screw floating molds.

You will get the results desired from a better mold all together and not worry about the water when you improve on throwing a superior flying mold. You don't need low glide to fight the wind. Throw with hyzer and use a faster disc which is not high speed understable. A disc doesn't need to be extremely overstable nor have "low glide" to flight wind. A lot of people confuse a disc which has a lot of natural turn to be "gliding" which isn't really the case.

DX Orc or Archangel (somewhat similar flight ratings to Wahoo/Dragon with less glide) and then it's only $8 to replace. $5 if you grab an X-Out. EZ-PZ

DX Firebird

I'd rather have a disc sink than taunt me while floating in the middle of the lake or pond.

DX Teebirds and Eagles all day.

Air Enforcer?

DX Firebirds were made for this.

At what weight does a DX Firebird float?

I will but a moderately overstable disc from a used bin, then, if I lose it, no big deal. Right now I am using a star teerex that was $4

Another vote for avoiding discs designed to float. Find a few used, $5, quality discs and run with those. You may even find a perfectly worked in gem that becomes your favorite thrower (happened to me)

I like to pick up used DX discs for this. My current water disc is a DX cheetah, and for more beef I have a DX boss that I picked up in a used bin for $5 together.

Found discs with no numbers.

My water disc for YEARS was a DX Shark. For some reason (go figure) when I wasn't worried about losing the disc, I never did. Every shot landed safe. I got out of my own head.

When you care less, you shoot better. (in my case) DX/X/Base molds of your usual discs are the way to go!

Exactly!

Agree with those above who say to get a cheap DX (or base plastic) or used version of your favorite disc for the distance and turn/fade throw you need over that water.

Reniger 03-17-2016 08:12 AM

Funny we should be having this conversation... It was windy as hell yesterday and I was meeting my usual DG Partner for a round after work. He commented that he was worried about losing discs with the conditions, so I stopped by PAS and raided the used rack and got him two of his favorite driver (Beast) in DX and a DX Roc for $12 total. One Beast flipped over and carried over a fence, but at least it wasn't his Champs that he loves.

Used DX is perfect for those unsure days! :thmbup:
