Only really predictable discs are the ones you know how to throw.
Yeah I was at a loss of what to do. I took several bogies that cost me. I needed about 20-40 more feet.

Yeah the wind was swirling. We were playing pretty close to an inlet off the beach in NC. Thanks for the chart tho!

Lots of them... Volt and PD are 2 of my personal favorites.

A friend on Facebook recommended a PD. I'm gonna look at getting one. Thanks everyone. I have a few of the recommends already and I'll pick up a new pd, I had one and gave it away. Not sure why.

This is a solid chart. It really helped me picture crosswinds better.

I bet all those Blizzards get touchy in the wind. A Blizzard Ape might have enough beef tho. Have you tried the Champ Viking and DX Firebird you have listed on your profile? I might also consider a heavier Star Wraith.

Would a Firebird fit the bill? They eat up wind pretty nicely.
