Overstability? What colors? I recevied two of them and was extremely dissapointed. Mine almost flew just like my FD. couldnt believe how flippy they were.

I'd say the stability on my pink one is about the same as when it was fresh, but it seems to want to hold straight just a tiny bit longer before dipping into its fade. I'm still working on form/distance (I max out at around 330' with my FD2v3), but I just can't imagine anyone describing this disc as flippy. I'd be very curious to know how far people are throwing it to make it act flippy...

I'm happy about the durability, but if I'm being honest I was hoping to replace my FD with a beat in RR because the rim is so much more comfortable.
I've been using a pink 175g since it's release for my FH drives and approaches. I play a lot of wooded courses and it has hit quite a few trees in it's time and it's starting to show it's battle scars. But it's still go that stability and dump that I loved whenever I first threw it. If anything, I'd say it's got more glide now because it's getting beaten in.

Like a few of you mentioned, I'm hoping that I can get this one really beat in and then put a fresh one in the bag as well.

I've thrown one of the 2 that I got, it's 172g and the flattest one I could find in the shop. My distance with it is similar to yours and would say it flies about -1/2. I notice considerable lateral movement with mine. It's not flippy but it's not as OS as I'd like to compliment my FDs.

Took it out for a test drive again last week and can't find a place in my bag for it.

I have blues and oranges, mainly max weight (I have one blue 167g, but haven't thrown it much). Definitely more overstable than the FDs in my bag. If I'm throwing them flat they'll have a tiny bit of turn before fading back; if I'm hyzerflipping them they'll flip up to flat but won't turn over at all. Both my FDs and Royal Rages average between 340-360, but the RRs will always end up right of the FDs (throwing LHBH).

Don't worry. They'll be perpetually out of stock forever!

I’ve talked a lot of **** about the botched release of this disc, but it still stands that this combination is my best One-Two punch fairway combo. They can cover everything I need for workhorse duties, forehand and backhand.

The disc on the right is a well seasoned flat Eagle L.

Stock run FD2 v3 in C-line, grabbed a flat one from the store this morning.
I havent ever held the Royal rages but the vendor told me these stocks seem to have just slightly higher shoulder and stability compared to those.

That's interesting, RR didn't make my bag for OS fairway to compliment my FD. I like the profile and feel but was looking for a little more beef. Might have to grab one of these, recent champion plastic has been good stuff.

I grabbed a green 175 and red 172
Both are more os than my RR. The RR will flip to flat and ride straight before a healthy fade, full power I can push it to 320ft.
The c-line holds even the slightest hyzer. Resists torque and oat very well on forehands.
That orange one looks nice. Probably gonna wait till my local brick and mortar gets them to go pick out the most flat one.
The ones I got online are not as flat as the RR but wouldn't really say that they have a dome. More like a slight shoulder.
