Yeah, depends on the mold and run. Luster FD3s are the least stable FD3s for example.

So Ive only ever flat topped a gator that had an awkward dome to it but Ive been considering attempting it with one of my new lusters. Is this a terrible idea or what? I want some input before I do something drastic to a disc that I have no issues with just want it to have a different feel than the others.

Sounds like a terrible idea to me. That being said, I have no problem with the shape of the new run. I don't think you're going to change the flight characteristics and obviously you assume at least minor risk of not getting what you want and having a wonky as heck disc.

I say go for it! I don't have a problem with domey discs at all, however I do wish these were a little flatter. I think it boils down to them being a little stiffer plastic combined with the big dome, they don't feel super comfortable at least for me. It could also be that it's winter and I'm not having the easiest time getting a good grip on these. What's the worst that could happen?

I have no issues whatsoever with the mild dome that FDs seem to have. It might be the cabin fever getting to me, but I wouldnt mind one of the lusters I have being flatter than my CG nightstrikes. Just might happen over one of these nasty cold days were about to have. 😳

Let us know how it works out if you do.

I bought a c-line FD 174g awhile back. It's kind of overstable and not really neutral. I'm hoping it will break in. I have to really gun it to get it to go. Plastic is pretty slippery too.

Sounds like you're not satisfied with it, I say go for it. Maybe use some slightly cooler water (just sub-boiling) and not a ton of weight.

Im curious if this is new stock or leftovers from the last batch. The OG ones were fairly domey correct?
