Overstable discs take longer to complete flight and make a larger barrel role type flight. Sometimes you want something understable as it'll flip quicker. It depends on the distance and ceiling space I have as to whether I’ll throw something over or understable. Max distance potential is going to come from an overstable disc. As far as the accuracy is concerned, it is just practice as it is a different flight path so the line you have to choose is going to be different.
Montty, what weights are talking here? I agree with heavier star for control (personally have 2 thumber aces with star firebirds) and you are right about the Firebird being the best Thumber disc by far. I am just curious what distances you are getting with what weights?
I found I get more distance with a Z-Flick but control goes out the window for what its worth.
