Pretty simple, the higher speed/spin you have the higher need for more stability for control.

Overstable is another buzzz word for players rated under 950who can't control their discs. They need more stability to control their oat.

Best pros in the world rely on their "flippy" mids the most.

Disagree, they mostly throw Destroyers, PD2, Force or D1's and 2's. As for Mids thats a different story, we are talking about the Four20 here.

Why does overstability matter for big arm throwers?

Thanks in advance

Because discs behave different if you throw them 500' vs 300'. Look at the MVP threads. Some people talk about having to season their Amps and Switches for a few months before they can see turn out of them, and I use those discs exclusively for 20mph tailwind turnover drives when they are fresh.

You're right, for some reason I thought I saw midrange in there.

The same disc will do different things when you put it in different people's hands. Hence why some players need a meathook driver to do what a noodle arm like myself can't do with a straight flyer like a Teebird.

Big Germ is a prime example of using "flippy" discs for FH, when FH is generally demanding more stable discs.

The long distance throws are generally all "flippy" discs, and lower weights. Stability is needed when wind is increased, but...with still winds....its the preference of the thrower.

I've come to love neutral discs, or a stable finishing disc. I can handle HSS allowing for a small turn, a lot of new players confuse that with "flippy".
