Those aren't complaints that's just how it is. If the mold was consistent there wouldn't be discussion about the flight differences between the runs. I think this is backed up by the fact that Simon/Eagle throw 2nd (1st?) run PD's because they like that variation of PD. I think Eagle has held on to one PD for 2 or three bags now because he likes that specific run/disc so much.

I'm not speaking for the majority or minority of players because I can't. I'm not Simon or Eagle or 1000 rated. I don't throw 500 ft. I use them for distances between 350 and 380 feet with pretty good form. I can't throw the newer runs that far because they're too over stable for my arm speed.

The 3 P-Line and 4 S-Line PD's I have are from 2017.
I bought 10 more P-Line PD's in February of this year and they're a little more stable but still have some turn.
I bought the newer run S-lines a couple months ago (August maybe) and they're super over stable.
I know you're not going to believe me when I tell you this, but you've just described every mold ever made. They're all inconsistent. The only reason PDs are so documented is because they were adopted from the beginning by the nerds at DGR who over-analyzed everything.

First Runs are generally considered to be the model for how a mold should fly. FR PDs are stupid beefy. If PDs are too overstable for you, have you considered trying a different mold instead of looking for anomalies? There are so many options available that mold loyalty is as much of a hindrance as brand loyalty without sponsorship.
