Update: the original 169g now has the 'new' beat out of it after extensively using it for a month. However, I've acquired a small stack of other Stags and the original one is the flattest, so not surprising that it acquired flip pretty quick. Still a really nice disc. It doesn't hold any angle like it did when fresh, but it hyzerflips really nicely and can be thrown on long turnovers that fight out at the end. Still love it.

I've acquired 4 other Stags in a variety of weight/dome/plastic combos, and I agree with everyone else that dome seems to be the best indicator of stability. Weight seems to matter more than plastic type too, but not nearly as much as dome. I have a 174 Lucid and 166 Fuzion with tons of dome, and they both fly way more stable than the other three.

I'm really glad I gave Stags a chance. Since their stability when fresh is very similar to beat up Getaways, it makes a seemless pairing in my bag. And given how I've already been able to see a loss in HSS in my first Stag, I'm encouraged that they can eventually beat enough enough to kick out my one token Hatchet. Really nice mold!

*Oops, just realized I used DD plastic nomenclature rather than Westside. Obviously I meant Tournament and VIP rather than Fuzion and Lucid.

End of season update: Stags are awesome. The flat one that I bought in May has really beat in for me. I definitely accelerated the break in period though, since I used it quite a bit for rollers. It is now almost to fresh Hatchet territory. I also bag the domey 166g TP Stag that I got a month later, and it has held its stability well. But I also never use that one for rollers.

I will be seriously sad if Westside OOP's this mold.

Found an old stamp Stag in the back of my van while cleaning this weekend. It’s one I bought used and forgot I had. Like finding money!

Also took my two newest Stags a TP Burst and a really pretty Glitter VIP put for a walk today, and it was really funny. I’d throw the VIP really well and be psyched about the throw, and then on several threw the TP and thought that I didn’t quite hit the line right or was a bit disappointed with it, only to discover that it went 15-20 ft further on all but one throw. It is probably the domiest Stag I have and glides for days, but it hits a little different.

Those who throw them a lot, what numbers would you assign the mold?

domey, max weight: 8/6/-0.75/2
flattish, mid-160's weight: 8/5/-1.5/2

Basically, the more dome you have the more stable it will fly and the more glide you get. I *love* the domey Stags.
The flatter ones are good too, but in a different way. The flatter ones lay down on roller lines much easier for me than the domey ones. Flat Stags are one of only two discs that I'm comfortable rolling. When I throw rollers, I roll a flat Stag if I want it to cut left at the end or a Hatchet if I want it to finish right.

I think Stags are in the same general stability level as Escapes and Saints, but are a tick slower and much easier for me to control.

Edit: my post inadvertently makes it sound like Stags are roller discs. While they can absolutely be a stable rolling disc, they are so much more than that. They're a fantastic workhorse fairway driver.

8/5/-1/2.5 for a good domey one, and for the more flat ones are more like 8/4/-2/2

Found a mildly used old stamp VIP Stag at play it again today. I mainly dropped in to use the restroom, but ended up finding the Stag, and a barely used Bard and Flare. Basically three of the key discs in my bag for $27.50 I’ll take that all day.

Solid find! I grabbed a couple more Stag backups a little over a week ago. Ordered some misprints directly from Dynamic Discs, with instructions to ship me the two domiest misprint Stags they had. I haven't thrown either yet, but they both feel like nice, domey, stable Stags. And for only $10.99 each.

As always, great customer service by DD. They are always willing to handpick discs for you if you have a preference.

I'd say fresh market weight:
Domey- 8/5/-1/2
Flatter-: 8/3.5/-2/1.5

Pretty to very beaten in:
Domey-: 8/6/-2.25/1
Flatter-: 8/4/-3/1.5

The domey one was my first, and the main driver for most holes 300'+ for about three and a half years of 3-7 rounds a week 40 weeks a year. The flatter one was bought as a replacement, but overlapped with the domey one in stability too much. I then just shelved the domey one, even though it flew better, because the finish stamp was too cool to lose. The flatter one then seasoned much faster, getting fully retired in just one season.

Love the stag still for low ceiling hyzer flips, glidey, sweeping hyzers, and huge, slow-panning anhyzers, but it isn't in the bag anymore, as I started cycling Thunderbirds.
