A snowman is an 8, and glasses would presumably be a second 8.

FWIW- This makes sense for cold days provided there's no snow on the ground.

Powdery snow sticks to a warm (i.e. above freezing) disc like oatmeal on the side of a bowl. You'll be wiping every single shot that doesn't land in the basket... until the air chills your discs to freezing.

For snowy conditions: leave your bag locked in your car overnight so discs drop to the ambient temp. Then snow doesn't stick.

As far grip is concerned, avoid using Champ/ Z type plastic in the cold. Other plastics seem to provide better cold grip, especially G* and FLX.

And if the snow is more than an inch or two, I highly suggest ribbons if you don't want to lose discs.

Ok, OS/stable/US. I guess my mind is different. Since for RHBH overstable goes left and understable goes right, wouldn’t it stand to reason that stable just means neutral? I hear people say “that will be more stable” To me stable = neutral. To say it is more stable I think it is more neutral. But I guess people are using more as in it is more than stable (overstable). Is it just common to say “more stable” when referring to overstable?

I think people are using "more stable" instead of saying "overstable", which I don't like because it doesn't make sense. "More stable" should mean that it's flying closer to neutral compared to another disc.

I am trying to use "overstable", "neutral", and "understable" to describe flights.

You might want to check out the thread. The problem is, people have different interpretations as to what the terms mean and how they should be used. Keep in mind, they don't belong exclusively to disc golf, Ultimate players also use them to describe disc flights. It helps to understand how they were defined to begin with.

Suggest you read the entire thread, and you'll see what I mean.
