I see people talking about their ridic. o/s discs, but that's such a tiny part of the wind puzzle.

I agree that the best thing is to not stay inside because it's "too windy to disc." Learn your discs in the wind so you can anticipate the change in flight. You may not have to adjust all that much. I will swap a couple discs out if it's windy, making sure I have a Firebird and maybe swap one of my Buzzzes for a Pain, but I keep all my understable stuff too.

For those strong left to right winds, I throw a Teebird flat, or one of my more stable Rivers. Unless its really crazy out there I should end up straight out or a touch left of my line when it lands.

For headwind putts I carry a glideless putter. Used to be a floppy old Pro Rhyno, but I switched to a Zero Sinus recently, has good stability, low glide and great grip for sticking to the chains or the ground where it lands. Lots of spin, but let up on the gas a little.

For tailwind putts I use my Pures, but I aim high and put 'em nose up.

I think my favorite wind is a tailwind where I can rip on my 161g Star Sidewinder and know it's going to fly nice and stable and FAR.
