Default Saint pro stability

I am wondering what makes the most overstable saint pro. Is it the hard domey ones, flat and hard, different plastics,... I have one and it is not stable at all. Brand new. Just flippy as crap. Thanks

My stable ones are domey. Depends on the plastic for hardness, but my opto is a little gummy and my gold line is pretty stiff. I prefer the gold line. I have also heard the decodye run is the best. I am still trying to get my hands on one or two those.

I've got two flat, stiff, Optos. OS but not dumpy. I had a softer, domier, heavier GL and guess what -- more OS
What weight and plastic are you seeing "flippy as crap"?

It's an opto but it's tiedye and a little softer. It's got a mild dome. Everyone says there's is overstable so I'm just trying to figure it out

High wing/PLH is most important. Domey and stiff are also beneficial.

This ^^

My domey moonshine is the most overstable right now, and it is the newest saint pro I have in the bag. My fresh 176g domey GL is next in line for stability. Then it would be the slight dome 175g opto, followed by my 170g flat US beat GL

Most OS = Saint Pro Deco Dye
Next most OS = stiff, orange Opto
Least OS of the 3 (still super reliable teebird type fade, and my favorite) = Red Lavashift Gold Line

*all discs max weight

**also if your asking about the most OS saying yours is flippy, you better be throwing max weight. just sayin

Any Saint Pro I've lightly de-flashed instantly lost some high speed stability. So go easy with the de-flashing.

The saint pro is more of a seasoned thunderbird, and thats not a bad thing.

This could be true. But I don't de-flash discs, I throw them on the course to break them in.
