Default Low Glide Drivers/Mids

Thinking about a wind bag LOL! Need suggestions for low glide drivers and mids
So Far the only understable low glide disc I can find is the wolf

Look into anything overstable.

its definitely not understable, but a gator drops like a stone once it slows down

What exactly do you need the low glide for? I throw some glidey discs into wind all the time and if you put the right angle on it, things work out fine.

all good Mike I was considering a wind bag for a ski hill course nearby....and my experience has been that the high updraft winds from the base of this mountain to the top basically act to push discs upward....(not the same as a headwind even if throwing nose down and superstable this type of wind keepd disc aloft as the wind is pushing straight up from the ground below and not really a traditional headwind)
The majority of holes play from peak straight into the teeth of this prevailing wind so I was thinking less glide might be the way to attack this mountain under such conditions.
I throw level with the ground but the wind whips upwards...for instance I threw a rhino basically straight down the mountain/even with terrain and the winds still picked it up and flipped it above my head...my friend threw a tee rex the same way...level w/ground downwards and it was lifted and flipped due to winds coming from below the disc and not from in front of the disc.

Sorry for the extensive reply.....I hope it makes sense

Zone, Drone, for overstable. For understable in those conditions the only thing I can think of would be a max weight z buzzz or roc.
