that is extreme for our sport. At that point superb technique will dictate more than the perfect disc choice!

I think that is generally true, however I think getting in the ballpark helps too. I maybe once a month or so get that high wind and I struggle to have enough beef. I do have some beefy discs like the Stiletto which does alright, same with the Rask. I don't like the feel of either very much though. So I am still searching out other options.

I think that flattish and high speed is the key. I also tried a Star Destroyer which was a little domier and it didn't work. It turned and burned.

Let's say I throw 55 mph. Now add a 30 mph headwind and we have an airspeed on the disc of 85 mph. Funny downwind that would translate to a 25 mph airspeed. Better throw something slower and flippy!
