I'm in a similar situation.

I'm thinking the Thunderbird, star TL, or Avery teebird should work.

Like you said it's a stability thing, and I'd rather go slower speed but a bit more over stable for control vs high speed but kinda flippy.

For me, this hole needs to be for long hyzers or long approaches

Plasma Volt is the least affected by wind, overall, of any disc I have ever thrown. Headwind, tailwind, crosswind, doesn't matter.

Volts into one's hole sounds a bit hardcore

Ill research the Wrath. Thanks.
Check out the Streamline Lift too. Numbers say -2 turn but they are -1 for sure. Matt Dollar has a vid of him throwing them. Its like a glidey Vulture with less fade.

Rule #34.

If you are underage, or easily offended, do not look that up.

Plasma Volts and s-line CD2's are very similar to my experience.

Not gonna. I remember when the internet was young (right after I briefly believed for the first and last time i had won in a lottery abroad that i didnt know i had entered), looking up what tubgirl meant. Lets just say the search engine (yes there were others too!) trigger finger got not so itchy.

Default Fill my hole

For now I shoved a couple of CD2s and PDs in there. (Also put a Zone and an MD4 in the bag but thats unrelated to the gap I was trying to fill.)

Weird thing is the PD has a similar feel in my hand and I dont have those weird release issues.

The only Thunderbirds Ive thrown were champion and metal flake champion and my PDs are all S-line (star) so maybe that made a difference. Ive never been a fan of the feel of champion plastic.


The PD and the OLF have the same bottom (Firebird).

Seriously you will love them.
