Marshall Street's guide is a great simple tool, especially as a start. I'll often look there first, then go to InBounds to confirm.

They do have a couple of entries that are slightly off, and one in particular that's WAY off. They have the Squall listed as Tangent/Tursas-level understable, when it's really like a Buzzz.

Love inbounds! Most up to date but only four discs side by side. Flight analyzer has the best features allowing one to choose the skill and the flight paths adjusted accordingly (pretty accurate to my experience), but not a very up to date disc selection. discpath doesn't seem to exist anymore?

To organize discs in my brain, I use some kind of hybrid of the Discraft and Innova (4-number) rating system. Speed and overstability. So Marshall Street's guide is helpful if I'm figuring out where things kinda fit. Ultimately I end up trying/buying discs based on recommendations from others, so the only time I use those flight guides is when people mention discs and I don't know anything about them and want to see how they compare to discs I know. I've thrown enough plastic to know that flight ratings tell a very incomplete story.

Here is how I think about Marshell St flight guide; It is the high speed stability a disc has thrown with a little OAT.

It is NOT the net turn and fade. It is NOT the stability that a clean thrower like MJ, Schultz or Eric Oakley will get. It IS the stability that most of the weekend warriors will get though.

The Comet or Squall, is understable if it is not released clean; otherwise both are neutral. The Avenger is not a hard fading disc, but it is a favorite with some forehand torque monkeys I know. It doesn't turn and burn with OAT, very much like it's companions on the chart that might fade harder.

I don΄t think any weekend warrior or any player will think that the STALKER is more stable than Teebird, Explorer and Undertaker


But as a "weekend warrior" myself i like the chart but a few discs stands out as "missplaced" on the chart

I don't think it is perfect by any means, just my thoughts on what the chart is attempting to capture.

I was not singling your comment out, other than a starting point to expand my thoughts on.

This doesn't have the index on the right side like it used to, where the discs are listed in alphabetical order and then letter/number corresponding to the row/column on the chart. Does a version exist showing both the chart and index?

I use the Marshal Street one. The good thing is it gives me an idea of what discs are similar to discs I'm throwing or which direction to go if I need a more OS or US disc. The bad is like others have said, that this charts don't take into account the type of plastic being used. Once you find a discs you still need to do some research and figure out the type of plastic you will need for a certain flight pattern.
