Default How is the Pro Boss?

I'm looking for some how the Pro Boss flies compared to a Pro Katana or a Star/Champ Boss.
I can throw my Pro Katana about 400 max D, but with a turnover/flex shot. I'd like something that feels similar for "max D" but has less tendency to turnover, while ending on a sure fade... useful if there's a right side OB (RHBH).

Curious if the Pro Boss has a good glide to hold a straight drive at around 400' (I find the Star Boss does not.)

Thanks for any input,

Mike

I find them to be a lot less stable compared to the star. The will hold a pretty straight line for along ways. They are also good for a big S shot.

I find the pro boss is the worst of the bosses. A star goes very straight and a pro boss to me is a lot more stable. An r pro is understable and to me is very much like a Vulcan. But in my opinion the stars are the best. The will flip up nicely and fly forever.

me and a buddy were throwing back and forth in some fields and his "poppy top" pro bosses were much straighter and glider than his star bosses. The pro bosses seemed to flip from hyzer very nice...track right...and then fade out forward and slightly left where the stars would flip almost to flat...but never really faded forward and always had a much more pronounced left fade at the end. Thrown flat the stars would go straight and hyzer out. They reminded me of my forces honestly. These where RHBH and the throws were 400+ on the pros and 375+ on the stars.

Sorry to sidetrack, but because I like these discs a lot too (Pro Destroyer, Pro Boss, Pro Katana) this reminded me of the First Run Pro Katanas (They then came out with the main runs of Pro Katana's and they were different in that they stunk.) The First RUn Pro Katanas were awesome. They and Pro Destroyers are great: glidey and fast with middle stability - Anhyzer bomb discs for as much distance as possible. (this was before the Nuke though, which did add that oft-proclaimed 50 ft.

I know these discs pretty well as I distance drove with them a lot for about a year trying to increase my distance.

If I may say, the Pro Bosses are good but slightly lesser than the First Run Pro Katanas and afaik any-run of the Pro Destroyers.

I've found that pro bosses tend to be understable compared to a champ that is overstable.

R-Pro Bosses get the BIG D. But they don't last very long.
