I'm trying to find a disc that I like to fill the overstable midrange slot in my bag. I went out to the local course today with the Obex that I've had (but haven't really used) for a few months. It's 174g, in the medium x-link material.

When I was throwing it, I found it to be far less stable and predictable than I would have originally guessed. When I sort of 'lobbed' the disc, it would have a stable flight but when I started cranking on it the disc was less predictable. Aside from my form, which could use quite a bit of work, might some property of the disc be causing this? The only two things I could think of are the softness/springiness of the disc was causing it to deform as I put some speed on it or the grippiness of the x-link was causing problems. My buzzz flies dead straight, but is a much stiffer disc.
