I just picked up a newer run Star Katana in hopes for a long roller disc. The one I picked up was more OS than all but 1 of my destroyers and Boss. I couldn't believe how stable it was.

That happens with Katanas...never thrown a star but the champs can either bomb on the expected hyzer flip lines or be OS bricks.

I can't really say. They definitely aren't old, but they were found in lakes.

Katanas can be a finicky mold. I've thrown very good ones, and super flat, overstable ones.

If you want a good Katana, stay away from really flat ones. I've never found a flat Katana I liked.

Yeah, it sucks. I've thrown a few champion and star Katanas that were the same way. VERY overstable and glideless. Your odds improve if you get Katanas with a good dome. The flat ones tend to be way beefier.

I've even run into a couple Vulcans that were the same way. Really flat, fast, glideless, and beefy.

I know what you're talking about. You have to look for the flat wing top in order for them to be possibly understable. The new run has a rounded wing top which reminds me of the discmania top. They are beefy and perfect for my distance sidearm. I liked the old flippy star katanas when I started out and wanted to try them again. Found the beefy ones and was disappointed until I tried them for sidearm. I'm stocking up on the stiff mild domed new runs now.

My Star Katana is 164g but is overstable. My DX and Pro Katanas are a lot more straight-stable.
