If I were going to hang out with one top Pro in order to learn, it would probably be Sexton. If I could play on a card with top pros, it would be Sexton, MJ, and Cam Todd.

I'm in your camp, but I'm beginning to add some overstable discs. Some of this is due to improved form and experience, but most of it is to have a core bag that is more prepared for windy weather. And it's starting to work out really well for me...

Taking a lesson from and playing a round with Nate was the best thing I have ever done for my game.

Anyone who has an opportunity to take an actual lesson with a 1000+ rated player ought to do it. Stat.

Of Course as do.

The US's in my bag are as follows:
Dist: Westside Queen, Lat 64 Bolt
Fair: Westside Hatchet
Mid: Dynamic Discs Evidence, Westside Tursas
Putter-drives: Westside Swan2, Swan 1 Reborn

I absolutely LOVE my Westside understables. They have a very later turn, later than anything I've ever thrown. 3/4 of the flight is basically straight.

I cycle discs. Usually have an understable version of each of my discs in my bag. Sometimes really beat ones.

The one condition where I think you need understable discs is when you are playing in the rain. I struggled with rainy conditions, specifically losing my grip. Someone suggested throwing understable discs at about 60% power... Holy smokes! A lot less grip issues, and the understable discs act more neutral at that power level. Play conservatively and try to hit fairways and make putts.

I thought it was great advice, and really helped me get over my fear of playing in the rain.

The noodle arms (or those who haven't worked on their form enough to throw farther than about 350 or so…) appreciate that they can hyzer flip or throw a turnover shot with understable discs.

I'll hyzer flip even a longer driver if I have the room.

Two reasons really:

1. Why make a disc do something it's not really designed to do? It's easier to throw an under stable disc than to modify your throw with a stable disc.

2. I am a left handed backhand and 2/3 of the holes I play favor right handed players. So it's easier to pull out and under stable disc than to fight a hole with a stable disc. I never have to wonder if the disc is going to go where I intended, it does it by design.
