2nd run glows are pretty neutral and easier to work, they are another slept on run that people arent paying attention to. if you dont mind the dome , theyre good flyers. purple flaked eternal 4th runs are also very nice and similar in flight if you can find them but i dont think they were too common. i haven't dabbled in some colors still but i have heard some sublimes being less stable out of the box like you are asking for.

Curious and snooping around Mint stuff after an enjoyable experience thus far with Profits.
Is there a chart for the most recent runs of Alphas? Specifically heavy orange 3rd run Apex’s, light 3rd run pink Eternals, and any of the 4th runs? Would be awesome to pick up a straight to fade and a straight/little turn-happy alpha.

mint was trying to keep up with charts and the last few they did were more of a chart for PLH to show some variances that people may have reported within the runs. the 2nd run has the most variances bc that was basically a "trial" run to see what could be done with certain blends.

i can tell you the heavy orange 3rd run apex are straight to fade and glide forward plenty, 3rd run apex's are a favorite of mine and lots of others if you dont mind dome. the 3rd run pink eternals are about the same but maybe a tick more hss but not much. the 4th run eternals are all about the same as far as the straight to fade flight goes without turning much for most players unless you are a power thrower.

id say your best bet for the straight to little turn alpha is going to be the 2nd run (open jar) nocturnals, 3rd run purple apex and 4th run purple metal flake eternals. keep in mind though, the flight characteristics of the alpha represent the straight to fade flight path, not many are understable but they do exist, its just not entirely too common. i would recommend finding an alpha you have and know how it flies and then compare PLH to others in store if you can. otherwise 2nd run nocturnals are your best bet for least stable of this run that you can purchase online.

there are earlier runs that are straight to understable out of the box but theyll cost you if you have to search online. specifically the 2nd run sublimes, 2nd run pearly green eternal, 2nd run pearly pink eternal, 2nd run purple apex.

if you have any more questions, feel free to pm me or ill respond when i can on here thanks for supporting mint.

ps ive included the charts that can be found on the mint discs website under news/blogs. nothing new has been updated atm for the most recent runs but these should cover the 3rd runs.

You are the man.
I’m assuming that the more left it is the lower the PLH? May pick up some orange apex’s and see if I can cover them like my Volts. If they were a touch more stable I could cover any shot headwind to turnover-but they come with a hair too much turn so I may try my hand at seeing how beat I can get an alpha and may boot out the Volts. Right now I’m only bagging three molds plus utility-profits, Gilas, and Volts-and I get my Volts out to 400 consistently 450+ on a good rip or light downhill. but I feel I could roll profit-bobcat-alpha and be just as good, just experimenting with ye ole bag.

np man. in the pics, yes, the further left colors are the least stable . when comparing plh in person, use a disc you know and compare nose to nose , it has to be the same mold though. if its higher, its more OS, if the nose is lower, its less stable. of course, dome can come in to play but it still gives you an idea on what to expect.

the 3rd run apex's can handle some wind and flex out but still have fade to finish left or at least fight out of a turn. ive gotten some alphas beat into hyzer flip to turn over , it just takes time in the eternal plastic. apex can beat in fast depending what kind of terrain you play on.


a light weight bobcat is what i recommend, closest to 170 if you can find them. theyre straighter for a bit longer than the heavier ones and will still fight wind just fine. i used to throw gilas and while the gila has more glide than the premium bobcats, they can still be replaced by bobcats. i prefer the lack of bead over a bead if i have the choice.
