Overstable is a term that describes the overall flight patterns of golf discs, i.e. where they land compared to their starting point.

* Overstable discs are recommended for players with experience.
* Comparable to a 'Hook' in ball golf.
* Fade opposite the spin (hook) when thrown flat, straight and with average power. Which means...
* RHBH (right hand back hand) throws spin right and fade left (hook). Opposite for lefties, i.e. LHBH (left hand back hand) throws spin left and turn right.
* Fade in proportion to the speed of release. Fast released discs fly rather straight at the beginning of their flight until they lose speed and start to fade off to the left toward the end of their flight, hence ending more left compared to their starting point. Slower released discs won’t fly very far before fading left very quickly (sharp hook).
* The higher the speed of release, the less sharp the fade or hook.
* The more overstable a disc, the greater the tendency to fade opposite the direction of the spin (sharp hook).
* Great choice when you need a disc that finishes hard left, (for RHBH).
* Typically used by strong arm high speed throwers.
* Work well against the wind.
* The more overstable, the greater wind they can handle.
* Work well for skip shots.
