Default Astra

I recently purchased a Millenium Astra, to see how it compared to my Star Archon.

AMAZING DISC! It flies ridiculously far without much difficulty.... if I'm throwing downwind. The second I throw headwind/crosswind the disc immediately rolls, or, on occasion, will actually do a barrel roll and fall straight out of the sky. I assuming no-wind days it will be great, but I haven't had many of those.

Now, this is my lightest driver (164g) whereas my others are usually in the 170s. My archon is 166 and also does poorly in the wind, but not THAT poorly.

What I want to know is, if I get a heavier Astra, will it be able to handle the winds and fly way awesomer, or is it probably the disc itself and its aerodynamics that are having this affect?

I throw 3-5g more on the astra than my archon, and they're pretty similar. TONS of glide, and easy turnover distance. I wish it came in a bit more durable plastic, but it does feel great in the hand. I have a 175g that can get squirrelly but it just needs to be given a lot of height to work.
