Collection: Overstable

An overstable disc has a higher Fade number than High Speed Turn number. For RHBH* thrower, the disc has high tendency to fly to the Left.  For example, a disc with flight numbers 13/5/-1/3 would be considered overstable.  A short cut method for determining whether if a disc is over or under stable is to add the last two numbers in the flight numbers, in this case: -1+3=+2.  If the resulting number is positive the disc is said to be overstable.  If it’s negative it is understable, and those resulting in 0 would be considered stable or straight.

Overstable discs are usually recommended for the power throwers with considerable experience.  In the hands of an inexperienced player the results will usually be disappointing because the disc will fade so early in flight it really doesn’t go very far.
