I love the new Roc3 and Teebird I've gotten in the new MF. The Roc3 is more stable than the 2x Roc3's I used to throw and flies a lot like a USDGC Roc(without the dome) or a VIP Bard.

The Teebird is similar to a Brinster but not quite as OS, more than a Champ standard but I think it will beat into perfection and stay there for a long, long time.

Ironically I'm not bagging either of these discs right now. But I easily could.

I threw a friend's metal flake PD and it was extremely overstable compared to its other plastics. I bought some metal flake Thunderbirds assuming they too would fly more overstable but they were just like any other run of Champion... maybe even less stable.

Saw these in GGGT. Curious about the MF Katana. They appear to be quite domey (so do the other MF fast drivers BTW)

Metal flake discs tend to be more overstable than their couterparts. I had a metal flake Destroyer that I basically couldn't throw because it was so overstable. I would need to throw it on a huge anhyzer in order to get it to fly.

Also I saw an ITB video with a pro (I think Barry Schulz?) who said that metal flake discs tend to be overstable.

In general buying TB's blind you will get more stability from a heavier disc and less from lighter. In the past MF's are usually more stable also then Champ versions. Of course you could always get an outlier but I've got a bunch and they seem pretty consistent, much more so then high speed drivers.

I have a MF Ape that was absurdly domey. So much so that I reduced it with some hot water and weighting. Now has a very slightly concave middle of the dome but flies much better.

I just ordered a production run MF Roc3 looking for a Roc3 a bit more OS than my Star. Despite being 5 grams heavier (175) and brand new the MF was very similar in stability. The difference being the MF had fade that was a bit more dumpy with the Star having smooth forward fade. Compared to my 180g 2x champ Roc3 with a chunk taken out of the rim it was, once again, very similar in stability.

The only thing keeping me from being completely disappointed was the fact that the orange MF production run was nice to look at and easy to find. Also as said before, this run of MF isn't super stiff and for what it's worth it has a very, VERY mild dome.

I wondered about the MF Katana because with that disc dome does not usually equal stability. Pro are pretty domey and understable, I've got a flat GStar that is truly overstable. Could be the way the wings form more than anything though.
