Default PA1 how overstable is it?

How Overstable is the PA 1. Are we talking Rhyno overstable or a bit less? Thinking of trying one for a driving Putter. Thanks.

One in 350G doesn't feel far off the Shield from Westside, so it's not a glideless rock.

Depends on your power level. Probably less than a rhyno but also fly a lot further. They are pretty os in the 400 series but season up into nice straight flyers that won't turn into a headwind in the baseline plastics. 300 seasons quickly and doesn't skip much. 350g takes a little longer and is harder will skip more. It's a great driving and reliable approach putter.

I have one in 400 that is a nice os compliment to my wizards. I throw evo wizards off the tee, but when i need more hyzer and a more predictable putter in the wind, I'll reach for the pa1. Never for putting though, wizards keep that slot for me.

This. I putt/approach with 300s and have 400s for off the tee. They saved me a lot of strokes in my first tourney of the year. I used Challengers forever but switched due to the LSS being better for my game with the PA1's. The PA1 switch was the first time I've switched putters since I've played disc golf. That's how much I like them FWIW.

I throw 350g for approach. It is awesome. The over stability is perfect. Not so strong that it rolls upon landing like a zone will without proper care. I'm able to throw it into a strong headwind without it flipping.
One of my favorite throw is a flat release with a slight anny from 150 ft. Super straight and a gentle finish.

I have only thrown the 750 par2 PA1 but I would compare it pretty closely to a Big bead aviar. Might be slightly more stable into a headwind but there wasn't a ton of wind the day of the par2 challenge.

Pa1 is more overstable than a bigbead aviar in a head wind and a pa1 has much more highspeed stablility.
Yes more overstable than a p2

The PA-1 is somewhere between a Rhyno and a P2. Not a bad disc, but I didn't really get along with it for whatever reason.
