I don't think it is widely understood that discs with a higher moment of inertia (more weight in the rim) fly like shit when thrown with lower spin rate and thus make the disc less versatile. On the plus side, a higher rate of spin is maintained througout the flight which elongates the discs window of stability (straighter flight at high and low speed). However, with proper technique a disc with a lower moment of inertia can still be thrown with a greater amount of spin and match the elongated stability of a disc with a higher moment of inertia.
In essence are overmolds (more specifically the "gyro effect") a bandaid for those that haven't learned to throw with a lot of spin? I still think overmolds are valuable in other ways but more so due to the ability to combine a tacky rim with a firm flight plate (or vice versa).
