I keep bouncing back & forth between Comets & Meteors. I'm willing to give one a try if they can be thrown off the tee for hyzer flips in the woods without it turn & burning.
Hyzer flip turnovers is the shot I use the Sol for.

Just got a 175g Z Sol in the mail. It didn't take me long to see that it's too understable for my arm. Seems like a very good beginner disc but it flip & dipped on me every time. I wanted to see if I could get laser's out of it but nah.

I agree that it is a beginner disc if you’re talking about throwing it at full power but for those who fancy finesse, it might be a winner.

I generally wouldn’t recommend an under stable, low speed disc for full power shots. At +/-60% it is certainly capable of touch flip to flat lasers. That’s what I use it for most. If I want or need to put more power into a similar, likely longer, shot I pull the max weight Meteor.

Discs like the Sol are all about speed control and angle of release. If you prefer the power approach, this probably isn’t the disc for you. Sorry to hear it didn’t work out.

If one can throw a Comet cleanly, the Sol is on easy mode. Yes it turns, but that is what it is designed to do.

Not for sure what all the fuss is about... maybe OAT?

Exactly. It's not a power disc it's a finesse disc. Easy and smooth when throwing it and it will open up lines you'll never had before.

She's throwing it with hyzer. I'm pretty sure the -3,0 kicks in when thrown flat.

Sure, but it´s not like she throws it at an extreme 45° super hyzer . . at 92m a speed 4 disc with a -3 would be more US than that.. . that looks more like a 4, 5, -2, 0,5 flight

But the Discraft -0,5 feels correct ( i sometimes think Discraft makes the "4-numbers" way of on purpose )

But i think the "turn" number is often way of. .. i mean Barsby throws the -4 Roadrunner +100m with a small hyzer flip to dead straight

She makes it pretty clear those particular ones are slightly more stable than regular z sols and her signature sol will be made to have that stability
