Yeah, I went out yesterday to basically play in the wind to see what certain discs flew like in 25mph+ winds. I had a new 175gr DX Wraith, Blizzard Waith, Blizzard Destroyer, !75gr Star Starfire, 175Gr Star Banshee. The DX Wraith and the Starfire were the most controllable, just had to release them on the appropriate angle given the wind direction. The Blizzards were pretty worthless overall in that kind of wind but made for some fun watching though.

Wished I had brought my 175gr Star Orc, and my other two Star and Pro 175gr Wraiths with me to test out. Maybe next windy day.

Would like to check out a PD and maybe an Avenger, have to put those on my want lists.

In tailwinds you'll want ur US stuff, and keep the destroyer for all headwinds.

they are great for headwinds but pretty difficult to get any distance out for most players.

My bag is very out of date in my profile. Haven't posted a lot. Firebirds are great in wind, just my D is about equal to a T-Bird. I use the 150 for Thumbers. I have a Champ Viking too. Damn I need to take all the crap I've got stored and revisit them.

Plastic can really change PD stability. I've seen a new C-PD fly like a Firebird and beat into a Eagle, and I've seen a fairly new G*PD with Monarch stability.

^exactly why I throw volt/tesla. Always solid HSS and reliable LSS in all conditions.
