Not sure they’ve produced the Emperor in just s blend. It’s more OS than I blend.

I have a Swirly S Pharaoah. I was asking if adding splatter made the s-blend more overstable.

Ah, I suppose I am not sure, only experience is with the emperor.

I know, I know, get more specific and arcane why don't I
IMO, Feldberg Bosses are among the best flying wide rimmed drivers ever made. I fell in love with the Boss because of that run. Innova hasn't replicated it since. Most Bosses I've thrown since are beefier and don't glide as well as Feldbergs.

They really do glide well for not being understable.

I'm going to assume that someone actually has the armspeed to throw these, all will be pretty glideless if you don't.
Star Xcal, S-PD2, and ESP Force are the ones that come to mind.

I was going to say the X-calibur and the Tee Rex, older version of the X-Calibur are what came to my mind too. As long as said person has the arm/body mechanics to throw the mold.

Though I agree those are some of the more glidey overstable drivers, even a "5" on the not-universal flight scale chart doesn't exist as far as overstable goes. Forget for a minute OP isn't talking about drivers...what truly overstable disc from any company, putter through wide rimmer, has real glide?

Not coming at you kevdiv, just a rhetorical question to everyone on this site. Overstable+glide=non existent...for a reason. TW mentioned that above already.


FWIW I bag and love the Xcal personally.

Fair point, fair point indeed. Overstability by definition means it is ground-seeking.

Then I will change my answer Innova Viper. Absolutely a meathook but has that wide diameter configuration to give it some carry.

some old timers on here would argue that certain runs of the pd had a great glide with overstable ratio that got big d

star fb has great glide with os

the glide with os ratio generates pretty decent d with still being reliable to not flip/fade out early
