Discs almost always beat in more understable. My Glo-Swirl ESP MJ Comet is beating into a slightly overstable disc. Weird but true.

I thought I was imaging it at first until I bought a backup at the same weight....nope, it really is.

I have the same experience with K1 Kastaplast Falk. I had 3 og them, and all of them got more stable (or ratter less understable) with some use (they barely get visible wear, the K1 plastic is really durable.

I also suspected I was just imagining it, and in a Kastaplast Facebook group many claim that this phenomenon (I am not the only one to report this) is just due to people learning to throw it better.

But then I got a fourth Falk from my brother, and took it out for field practice with the three older ones. There’s no doubt - the newest is a lot more understable.

I guess some light use changes the shape of the Falk, making it less understable. Can’t think of any other explanation.

I have not seen the same in any other molds.

When a disc has become straight, it's important to trade those into your local play it again sports so that I can pick them up for pennies on the dollar.

Oh and be a dear and don't write your name all over the back in sharpie like a 4 year old. Thanks - Everyone

I have a glow K1 Falk and it seems to have done the same. It now flies like a Champ Valk. Again, I thought it was my imagination.

On the plus side, it has firmed up in the months since I bought it. At first it was too soft.

Hey someone should come up with a machine to beat in a disc to just the right stability on demand - I'm too impatient to... oh I dunno, play the game /snooze

I'm thinking a decommissioned front loading dryer filled with hammers or something. Throw a fresh stack of Rocs in there, let it rip for longer or shorter depending, and make all the $$$ selling a fully actualized Roc cycle, ready to throw.

It's called bead blasting.

Closer to what you were suggesting is a tumbler using Cob media.
