Default Plh question

Does a higher Plh make a disc more or less stable?

Since I just took and posted a pic comparing parting lines in the Z Nuke thread, I could post it here as an example:

The pink one has very high parting line and is quite overstable, while the orange one has low PLH and is very understable. Both of the discs are normal mold Z Nukes. This is also the largest variation I have seen in any single mold, usually the differences are much more subtle, but still noticeable. On the orange one the actual parting line is nicely visible, as it has collected some dirt and shows as dark line.

Yeah, and believe me, they fly like different discs too The pink one is as overstable as my most overstable Z Force, and the orange one feels like it should be stamped Nuke SS. Yet when you look at them from this angle:

..you might think the only difference is color
