How far are you throwing these PDs that they're torquing turning on you?

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
just get a new S Line. It's difficult to identify good c line runs, some are closer to firebirds, some are more like a beat in s line PD.

Honestly if you're flipping a new close to max weight PD, it's more likely you and not the disc. I don't have a cannon arm, and my new 168 sPD isn't flippy in the slightest.

I'm not the only one who has mentioned PDs having a bit of turn at high power/speed. I can't easily get the PD out to 375 even without and fade at all. I don't measure all my throws with it obviously but it isn't much shorter then my max d driver.

Distance isn't the issue with it, I can get it out there but with a little right to left movement.

Though I'm not saying my form is perfect (whose is?). But is good enough to throw 450 ft pretty consistently

C-PD is definitely a good choice to keep the same feeling mold. Otherwise, a C-FD3 will take all the torque you can throw at it and stay stable. PD2s are good, but quite a change in rim feel that I'm not a fan of. They tend to be more pop-topped with a small ridge where the flight plate separates from the wing. FD3s have a slightly more narrow wing, a rounded nose and are slightly taller. However, they come out flat topped with smooth transition points.

If you have the chance to grab an X-Out or used C-FD3, I would imagine it will be more the stability you're looking for. Plenty of speed, decent glide, stable enough that it's very difficult to turn over, but not such a meathook that it's solely for utility.
