Your sig says you bag an Envy. If the Opto-X Pure flies Proxy-like lines, then why wouldn't you just bag the typical Envy/Proxy combo?

Some old threads are fun to read how much answers change (or don't change) over time, and are worthy of a necro-bump. Others, like this one, are best left in hibernation where they belong. It's a...

Outlaws have always intrigued me. How do they feel in the hand? Kind of deep like a Destroyer or more shallow like a Trespass or Katana?

You are correct, PLH is just the outer edge on a driver. All other things equal, a higher PLH on a driver will always make it more overstable. Obviously there are lots of other variables (weight,...

Yeah, understable discs in particular need that dome to fly right. I stocked up on a run of Biofuzion Trespasses to cover my flippier end of the spectrum, and was bummed that that particular run...

I have a pretty small sample size (you can read my Katana experience over the past couple pages), but of the Katanas I own the only one that's a meathook is my domey Champion. My Blizzard has a...

Exactly. And it is a great driver for guys like me who are in that 350' range. If MVP had ever made a true gap filler between Photons and Waves, I would almost assuredly still be throwing gyro...

Yeah, I bag a beat Biofuzion Trespass that is basically a Wave at this point. Then I cycle Lucids and Fuzions for the more reliable stability slots, and I toss in a Lucid-X on windy days. So 3-4...

Plasma Waves are consistently domier than Proton and Neutron Waves. They are also a touch less stable, but not by much. In my opinion a Plasma Wave is a replacement for Neutron or Proton, rather...

I tried that journey and didn't find a gyro solution. Photon flies more like a flat Star Wraith, which is a huge stability jump up from a Wave. Defy is supposed to fly like a beat in Photon, but in...

Yeah, but this was a huge difference in flight and only 4g of weight difference. I think the bigger factor is that the beefy Champ Katana has a much higher PLH. It almost feels like a different...

Ah, that makes more sense. I don't always bag an Evidence (kind of a tweener stability between my Emacs and my Tursas, which I usually don't need) but when I do it is easily my longest mid. For me...

Crosswinds are more about technique and release angle than any specific disc. Not sure how the Westside logo somehow means you can't throw with a crosswind.

Seriously? Ahti, Warhorse, and Fortress are all good headwind discs. Hatchet, Tursas, and Swan are all good tailwind discs. What wind conditions do you play in that can't be covered by those discs?

Warship is one of those molds that has always appealed to me but I've never thrown. I imagine it would fly similar to an Evidence, but a touch longer. In theory that would create too much overlap...

I throw a Westside Hatchet and try to get it to land on a cut angle, basically 45-60 degrees in relation to the ground (10:30-11:00 on a clockface). It then slowly stands up to vertical while it...

Agreed with previous posters that it'd help to know how far you're throwing. In general terms though, I think you'll eventually find four basic stability classes for fairway drivers:
