I have been using a Discraft ESP Predator with decent results but when winds get really strong I can still flip it. Part of it might be technique and weight (I think that mine might be only 167 grams or so) but I am looking into other more overstable options. Anyone tried the Westside Giant? Legacy Rampage might be another option.
First Run Nuke OS. I believe it is the most overstable disc on the planet.
no way... innova old school kc pro 10 time firebird
Original Champion Whippet X . Max Weight. 175 grams.
Cryztal Flx Z Nuke. Beautiful disc
The Rampage turns over in a normal headwind for me, backhand about 375 range. I thought the Giant was a tad flippy as well from what I have heard.
If you want something that wont flip I would say try a Gateway Spirit or Discraft Flick. They are the two fattest disc I have ever seen. Then Nuke OS would be the one I would suggest for long drives. For normal drives I would say a very flat champion Firebird or Westside Boatman. Also for the midrange game a Drone will hold its own in the wind as well, very good disc.
I personally throw a pair of firebirds and a very overstable Destroyer for drives.
How heavy is the destroyer you throw?
175g, the heavier the better when dealing with a headwind, lighter disc stall out quicker.
I use a max weight Halo, if you can find one that is domey the better. Love my Latitude 64 discs!
I actually think that my Predator should do the job but I need to go to a heavier disc.
yup, that or an Ape in champion plastic, preferably first run, hehe.
I'd go with a Firebird. Although with contacts being out in winds over about 25mph is a bad idea so I wouldn't be there to begin with.
