Default Pro Starfire Stability Question

I just got a Pro Starfire that is about a 7/10 from the marketplace and I instantly fell in love with it. Its a red 169g. I expected it to be fairly stable but this thing is crazy flippy.... And i love it!!

I would say its flippier then my 167 lat 64 Gold Line vision.

So now im curious if this is normal or did I get a abnormal one? It was so easy to hyzer flip and I was getting really low line drives out around the 310' mark. It had a ton of glide as well. It became my go to driver in one game. I am wanting to get a few more for back ups and maybe even get new ones and rotate them as they wear. Im thinking a new Pro Starfire should be overstable enough to handle regular throws and hyzer flips into wind.

also I do understand that the pro version is the SL mold.

So anyone with experience with these that can chime in? Are they fairly understable or did i just get a beat one that is abnormally flippy?

Im pretty sure that that is normal since I had one once that I found 9/10 and was out throwing in a field one day and brought it just for fun and yeah it was hella flippy and I absolutely hated it cuz I wanted it to be stable.

Thanks man, hyzer flipping is my go to drive so i love flippy drivers. I will be carrying champ/star starfires as well so that will cover my overstable duties as well as the newer pro starfire's that i will have.

Now for the bad news... I really don't want to tell you... I'm sad too...

Innova has ceased making the Pro Starfire. (and the SL).

I'll be getting rid of my SL (that I really like). I don't throw discs that I can't easily replace.

Supposedly, the mold "needs repair".

Pro plastic can be very deceiving.. it will not really ding up but slightly warp. It might be in worse condition than you think.

I was going to say the same thing.

The MOLS might be a good disc to check out if you like the SL but don't want to look for OOP discs.
