Default Stable control driver

So I have been throwing a PD as my stable control driver, and while it is a great disc and will most likely stay in my bag, it flips a little more then I was hoping for. Ive actually been using it more for long hazer-flip to slight turnover shots. I have one in both S and G plastic ( 172,174) and they are pretty similar.

Im looking for something I can really crank flat and it will stay dead straight with fade at the end. Are C PDs much more overstable? Or should I look into something in the Pred/Firebird/Monster category?

Side note: i throw Resisters also, but looking for something with a little more D

C-PD's are more overstable, definitely. Or for same speed and very similar feel, QOLF.

I carry C-TDs, and I think they are gonna be replaced with my S-PDs, especially once they begin to break in more. Maybe ill try a C-PD before going to another mold, but have been very interested in a predator type disc

MVP tesla.

Faster PD really. Proton/neutron/plasma plastic all fly similar at max wt. Fission will be US the
lighter you go with 150s being stable.

I bag a volt (pd) and tesla is my volt with a little more d/headwind flighting ability and some skip action.

From the research I've done on the tesla it doesn't seem to have as much HSS but faster compared to the PD is this true in your experience?

Tesla doesnt really turn, at all. Even the stable proto plasma with dome had great HSS just less fade.

Only tesla without the HSS are sub 150g fissions. Not sure where it says they turn but not my experience at all. Its a workable OS control driver though not stupid beef. Id dont even throw anything more OS and max at around 400' with volts/tesla.

Super flat tesla (concave almost) can be pretty OS-- Even once seasoned they dont really turn but fade gets softer.

Yep...and all mine(3) are. They'll stand up into a headwind, but no visible turn whatsoever.

Thanks Aim!
