Love these types of charts. Wish Innova and a few others had them like this.

I'm surprised that the MD is missing. They surely knew it was coming so they could've prepared for it.

Would be nice to actually see how they place it in relation to their other mids.

I really like the chart, easy to read for beginners. If they can pick out a better disc for themselves they'll be less likely to get frustrated and quit. They don't realize what the numbers mean until the throw it...even then they don't know what disc to pick next based on current numbers.

No X-line plastic listed. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Agreed. And a shout out to MVP for doing this kind of thing first

More Stable. Just amazing if you have a big arm, they will just bomb straight and then fade off. Even in pro plastic at 169G the one i'm throwing has full HSS still can't wait to see what it does after a few dings! This Pro plastic seems to be holding up very well as well I've drilled a few trees and have nothing but a scuff to show for it. S lines are a bit beefier, and the C lines are depending on which run you would get, the most overstable discs they have haha. My JL is a brick compared to even my PD2's.

Guess I'll continue the thread derail...

I have a stiff Star Wraith with a really high PLH. Never seen another like it. It's really overstable and won't flip, so I use it for severe headwinds, forehands, rollers, utility skips, etc.

The DD is what I'm after then to replace this bad boy? I've been wondering what to do when I lost it. I really don't want to go any wider-rimmed than the Wraith. A Destroyer, for example, just doesn't feel right in my hand.

Go for the DD. I can get mine to about 415 ft, and there is not even a hint of turn, and this is in pro plastic. They have flat topped ones on the DM store that will turn a bit with power, but any normal star or even pro in my case (ive only thrown my one) will be very HSS. It's a true straight, to left flight. You can yell at me if you find out differently.

Edit: I also recommend checking out the DM store site. They list out very specifically their different runs and what they do, and what plastic does what on a disc etc. Very cool.

Cool, thanks for the rec on the DD. Color me intrigued. I throw a little shorter than that so this sounds good.

I've got a stack of mini stamp x-P1X from their online store. To the detriment of my wallet, I've been there.
