It literally lost forward momentum? Or did it just do the elevator and suck towards the ground?

Well it was hard to tell from behind but it dropped very quickly. Looked like it was slapped down.

I've seen some instances of this happening... also the super high shoot up of a disc... etc...

wind is a tricky thing and it isn't always the same at the teepad as it is throughout the flight of the disc... hard to predict sometimes

I have had this happen a few times, every time it's been at woodsy courses that have a few open holes that play out of the woods. BRP it's happened to me on the bomber, 440 ft hole 20, Annandale hole 16 about 600 ft and Oakwood hole 17, all good drives all just drop at 150-200 ft.

I think it might have something to do with throwing discs without enough overstability or weight to handle the adverse winds. Trying to forehand my 174g CryZtal Nuke SS comes to mind. Becomes extremely nose angle-sensitive in crosswinds or headwinds. A textbook throw with clean release will occasionally hunt the ground prematurely, a problem I do not have with my more overstable molds. I throw max weight, so I can merely speculate if weight is playing that big of a factor or not.

It's Global Blowing and it's getting worse thanks to the Koch brothers and their ilk. To fight this phenomenon please contribute to my End Global Blowing Now fund. When it blows, it sucks.™.

I would think discs that are overstable stones would drop harder in this scenario then let's say a stable to overstable disc like a blizzard ape. In my experiences it's been seasoned stable star destroyer twice and a z force.

Lol. You have thrown with me so... A 175g photon is plenty OS for any 425' thrower given a little hyzer. I have parked hole 2 on hansen with a tesla or volt even on a calm day with a nice rip.

Overstable discs want to find the ground faster.
