Default Discraft Plastics

Hey everyone I was wondering how the Discraft plastics are different compared to flight stability like OS vs under-stable. I really cant find any info on how Big Z is different from regular Z. Ive held it but I havent been able to throw it yet. How does Big Z, Ti and ESP affect the stability vs just regular Z?

Thank you for the responses!

D<X<ESP<BigZ<Z<Ti<ESP FLX<Z FLX this in my humble opinion is the Discraft plastics. Sparkle Z is a special so I didn't include it but it's usually dead nuts with Z. Hope this helps.

Big Z can mold up to be more OS than Z. Dome and PLH matter more. From what I have seen, Big Z tends to have more dome.
Some discs fly more stable with dome(Heat), some less stable.

ESP can mold up more or less stable than Z, according to the disc and run, but, yes, usually less stable.

I would also flip Jawbreaker to being less stable than X.

Isn't Jawbreaker just X with a coating?

It's interesting to me that multiple people say Z and Big Z fly different. I'm by no means a Discraft expert, but I thought they were the same plastic just with different stamps. Apparently not?

Dude learn to grow as a person instead of make useless comments on a forum. I came here for help and not a troll. Be a productive member of society or go back to your rock.

Wow! I threw Discraft for years, they have such a plethora of plastics I can't keep track of them. I also don't know all the tri plastics, and although I have a feel for the Innova plastics they have some specialty plastics I don't know either. Oh, I've been playing for over twenty years. Oh yeah, I don't know all of the discs that the big three have either, but I still fondly remember the Wildcat, the MRV and the Stormy... um, storm. And I wish Innova would make cheetahs in better plastic.
