- Flat discs also have less glide and less glide mean less lift to turn the disc.

Just my $.02
I think this is very well said, other than its the Stagnation Point Height rather than the PLH that really matter.
The difference in SPH and PLH doesn't seem to be much different in mids, from my observations.
This is one of the aspects that muddy the water. Even more true the faster the disc is.
