I don't know about you but my drives in a tailwind come up 2/3 my normal driving distance. What do you use in a tailwind?. Why?

Matt and Blaze,

Thanks for the info. I was somewhat boggled by the flight characteristics of overstable/understable vs headwind/tailwind vs disc rotation and I think I have a better grasp of it now. Disc selection in the wind condition is the easy part. I was looking more into the physics/science portion of disc lol.

Thanks for the info guys

Usually a slightly lighter driver. Experiment with different ones to see what works best for each situation.
I really like a DGA sparkle rogue for max D in a tailwind. Probably the best kept secret in disc golf is how far these go!!!!!......although sometimes I'll throw my least stable wraith instead.....
