If you look up overstable in the flying eye dictionary of disc golf you will find a picture of the lightning #2 Hyzer. This disc had developed into an absolute must in my game, especially on tight courses or in windy days. Nice predictability, especially when thrown flat. It will drive straight for maybe a third to half of the flight on hard drives and then it's all curves. On mild throws you get an overstable turn almost out of the hand. This disk is not flat, but it handles the wind very well. I live in an area where 40 mile/hour winds are not uncommon on the course. The other day the winds were so strong that I basically used my Hyzer for the whole game. Even 25 foot puts were wild and wooly. And it did the job well [even when I had to put with it] - all but once when I shot a little high into a particularly radical gust of wind - but even then it followed its overstable habits and turned the appropriate direction [as well as climbing 100 feet into the air] As the disc ages it grows less overstable. An older one that I have beat to peaces still flies well, but won't handle direct headwinds as well as my new one. I will admit I have also been thankful that it floats on two occasions. This disc works well for me and people I golf with all seem to end up wanting one when the game is over.

The #2 Hyzer is a wondeful disc. It is quite possibly the best thing disc Lightning has ever put out. I picked one up completely by accident and decided to try it out. It was not up to par on the monster distances, BUT I took it to a midrange technical course built within a thickly wooded hillside. There are few holes and they are hard to hit on this course.. Rosedale Down Under in Kansas City Missouri. Before I knew it I was carrying three discs into the down under - The #2 Hyzer / Aviar X Putter / Max Weight XD. Between the three discs I found a whole new game of control. In fact, I slammed my 4th Ace during league play with it! Unfortunately, I have lost it and there is no ready supply of lighting here in Kansas City.
