Halo Teebird3's are out. Got one incoming. Probably won't replace my Volts, but who knows.

And if some disc golfers use the word stable to refer to straight, then you can still tack on 'more' or 'less' in front of it. 'More straight' and 'less straight' are used in everyday language as well. Hell, straighter is an actual word, and is used for the sake of comparison.

That's the whole point here, we're trying to compare discs, and if stability is the disc's proclivity to resist turning, then saying more stable or less stable is a very fast and very easy way to compare two discs. Trying to give a word a black and white definition in a world of grays sounds silly to me. There's just way too many subtleties and variables in disc flight to do so.

You people saying there is no such thing as "stable" have clearly never thrown a Roc that's been seasoned straight.

Seasoned Roc, Fresh Comet, a good Nova, some PA4's. Plenty of dead straight options.

Are Halo plastics stiffer in general and more stable?

That seems to be the case so far for the most part-- at least more stable. The flight plate of my Halo TL3 is the same stiffness as my regular TL3s, (both are star I think?), but the rim might be stiffer.
