weird. I have 2 very overstable 2019s, but 3 of them are quite flippy. Might order 1 just to see where it is on the spectrum.

Threw mine a little today. Didnt get a great read from them but mine is gummier than the 2019 and also has a very flat flight plate. Seems to hold a turn longer.

Honestly, not a fan of the gummy-ness or the flat flight plate for a distance driver. Will work with it more to see if it will make the bag.

I'm with you. I enjoyed the flight, but I felt the plastic was just too gummy for California summers.

So i just got a SP Hurricane and a ICE Hurricane in the mail. Yet again, the ICE Hurricane is board flat. This is starting to hurt my feelings. Yeh, it has more turn BUT no glide.

The SP i got came out normal. Moderate shoulder and average flight plate height. Feels like a winner. Has good glide and stability. Should get better as it beats in.

I may have to only order Hurricanes from OTB now. I have now got 6 out of 8 Hurricanes that are pancake flat.

Im ok with them being flat AS long as they are BEEFY. Then i could use for my forehand. Flat and understable in a distance driver is not my cup of tea.

Bit of a tangent but I gave up on Hurricanes and now buy lighter and/ or beat up Forces for the middle stability distance driver slot. More consistent for me, I could never quite dial Canes in as well, they either flipped all of the way over or they fell out of the sky.

Been away for a bit because of moving and such. Here's my take on the current Proline Hurricanes. Something changed in the way they mold up, right around the time that McBeth joined up at Discraft and the Forces kind of changed too. Might just be coincidental, but all Proline Hurricanes I've picked up since then have had some pop top to them and are extra beefy when compared to the flatter circle stamped Canes. I've got a couple of tourney stamped pop tops that have way more overstability than any Force or Destroyer I've tried in recent years. I will say, they do pair nicely with my FF Worlds Hurricanes and my FF Torrents.

This is what i "forced" myself to do. Although im going to keep trying for a all DGA bag. The "hypercane" proto has me hopeful.

The Hypercane I think misses the mark for what you're looking for. The one I have I would say falls between a beefy Force and a Nuke OS in terms of stability. It's almost like a faster Hellfire IMO. If I were to give it a numbers rating, I'd say 12, 4, 0, +4.

In my opinion, I'd like to see DGA add a more neutral flying speed 12 disc that flew like an SP Rogue. Not to go off on a tangent, but have any of you thrown some of these mild dome Proline Rogues? I came across a matching pair at BRP one day and they are really good flyers. They compliment my Hurricanes nicely.

I heard they are reworking the tooling on the hypercane. The hellfire is only utility for me its so OS. You're right, i dont need a faster hellfire.

I do have a couple rogues and love them. I just need beefy hurricanes now that arent gummy dinner plates.
