Default Is your Panther domey?

I don't care much for my orange Panther because it's too domey. Got my girl a pink one, it's much flatter and feels amazing. So is your Panther flatter or domey? Really want to start throwing these but if it's a pain to find flat ones

I have one that looks like the pink one.

Just flatten the orange one and call it a day.

Poured boiling water in it and put 6 pots n pans on top and that's as flat as it got. Maybe do it again?

Pour boiling water in it, let the disc/plastic heat through, dump it while still hot and refill it immediately and place a casserole dish with water in it on top and leave it over night.

It looks like your stuck with the dome level on that one. In the picture you can see the wing height on the orange is much lower, which is pretty typical of discs that molded up with more dome. Dome is great though! It may not feel quite a nice to you, but it will probably fly more to your liking which is truly valuable.

The 2 Panthers I had were identical lime green champs, they were domey and very stiff plastic. I didn't like them and they didn't last long in my bag.

Just put the disc over a pot of boiling water, make sure the flight plate expands and gets real hot, take it off and press it upside down of course on the flat counter just using your hands (with oven mitts on or gloves), keep pressing down on it till it cools. It's faster and works better this method. Flatten time, 3 minutes.

I have 2 in champion plastic, one is 165gr and the other is 175gr and Im sure would be considered poptops with dome. Both have nice slow turns with alot of glide.
