Update: the original 169g now has the 'new' beat out of it after extensively using it for a month. However, I've acquired a small stack of other Stags and the original one is the flattest, so not surprising that it acquired flip pretty quick. Still a really nice disc. It doesn't hold any angle like it did when fresh, but it hyzerflips really nicely and can be thrown on long turnovers that fight out at the end. Still love it.

I've acquired 4 other Stags in a variety of weight/dome/plastic combos, and I agree with everyone else that dome seems to be the best indicator of stability. Weight seems to matter more than plastic type too, but not nearly as much as dome. I have a 174 Lucid and 166 Fuzion with tons of dome, and they both fly way more stable than the other three.

I'm really glad I gave Stags a chance. Since their stability when fresh is very similar to beat up Getaways, it makes a seemless pairing in my bag. And given how I've already been able to see a loss in HSS in my first Stag, I'm encouraged that they can eventually beat enough enough to kick out my one token Hatchet. Really nice mold!
