I like the Berg, but I don't need one that's more stable. What I need is something that flies like a Berg but feels like a Zone. My tiny little baby hands find the Berg a bit deep. I think it's because my thumb sits more or less on top of the thumb track. Works fine for backhands, but I have trouble getting a clean forehand release. It wants to hang on my fingers. Haven't found anything for approaches yet that flies as dead straight on the forehand but feels better.
Fellow Berg thrower with baby hands. Try the Lone Star Armadillo (slightly less stable out of the box than the Berg) or the even smaller rim Copperhead (slightly more stable out of the box than the Berg) Both are shallow thumb track 1 and 2 speed discs respectively and felt much more reliable on forehand. Their Victor plastics (soft and hard) are very similar to Kastaplast K3 and the thumb tracks are very shallow compared to the Berg. I ended up bagging a Copperhead and a Berg until I beat the Copperhead in enough to replace the Berg.
