You're driving down the street and turn left. Does a slow car turn less left than a fast car?


This is dumb.

Understable and Overstable aren't words. Just as Overunique and Underunique which you ingnored. They are vernacular made up for disc golf. In that same sense the word Stable when talking about disc flight, is a pretty unique word (see what I did there) with a different definition when used to reference disc flight. Things can be more or less stable if you consider Understable to Stable to Overstable a spectrum. One of the variables of that spectrum happens to be the speed on the disc as was pointed out somewhere earlier by someone that somehow also accepts understable and overstable as words but wants to limit the definition of stable to the non-colloquial meaning.

Also, speed and turn when driving have a lot of variability. Yes, driving faster generally requires a different amount, or at least a different timing to the wheel turn.

Do you even understand analogies?

Stable talk is underinteresting compared to par talk.

Some comments come from people who don’t seem very stable. Certainly unique, but not stable.

I’m whelmed, not over or under, just whelmed.

More and more now I see Stable not as straight flying disc but as the disc holds its line it is thrown on. So in my mind it is now something else. It used to be Straight 2-3 years ago thanks to Central Coast Disc Golf Company trying to promote this as well as Combacker, Looker and one other I hate that is from the "white California Dude" style of talk used mostly by Surfers and Skateboarders and some other similar extreme sports in California.
