I'm with the others here - once the wind picks up over about 10mph I start changing discs. Under 10mph usually adjusting release angles is all that's necessary. I played a tourney with winds sustained 15-20 and gusts 30-35 last fall and at that point it's just a matter of taking your most overstable disc and throwing it at the angle that penetrates the wind best and trying to get as close to the basket on the favorable side of the wind as possible to avoid bogeys. I was mostly throwing my Destroyer, Predator or Zone that day. I was using a flat top Spirit (most overstable disc ever, in my opinion) for upshots because it just wants to dive to the ground even in those winds, so it was easier.
