Is there any way to destabilize a disc?

Postby ahagglun » Sun Sep 27, 2009 5:15 pm

Bought a couple of drivers that were considerably more stable than I was expecting. Since they're in high-quality plastic, it would take a long time to wear them in naturally. Are there any ways to make a new disc fly with less stability?

I've heard you can work the disc around in your hands and bend the edge down for less stability and up for more. I haven't tried it much though and I'm not sure how much bending you would need to do.

These instructions (below) are specifically for the Aerobie Epic, but I think I remember a magazine article with similar advice for regular drivers. Maybe not quite 45

Do you mean they're more stable or more overstable?
