Disc Stability Overview

Disc Stability

Stability is the measurement of a disc's tendency to bank laterally during its flight path. The stability of a disc is determined by the Disc Flight Rating Numbers.

The discs in this Category are organized into three groups:

Overstable Discs

  • Tend to turn sharp to the left when thrown flat, straight, with medium power for right handed back hand throws (RHBH). Opposite for left handed players.
  • The faster the speed of release, the less sharp the turn to the left.
  • Beginners should avoid choosing discs form this category.

Stable-Straight Discs

  • Tend to fly straight when thrown flat, straight and with medium power. 
  • Great Choice for beginners, but also found in the bags of many advanced and pro players. 

Understable Discs

  • Tend to turn to the right when thrown flat, straight, with medium power for right handed back hand throws (RHBH). Opposite for left handed players. 
  • Easiest for beginners to control. 
  • Great Choice for beginners, but also found in the bags of many advanced and pro players.

Examples:

  • A disc with a turn of -4 and fade of +1 will fly to the right for the majority of its flight, then curve back slightly left at the end (For right handed, backhand throw).
  • A disc with a turn of -1 and a fade of +4 will turn slightly right during the middle of its flight and turn sharply left as it slows down. 

We strongly recommend to new players, to choose discs from the Understable & Stable-Straight categories.
