Discmania says this about the MD5: "The MD5 is our most overstable midrange designed to give the trustworthy stable fade that players are looking for. Great for powerful hyzer lines, dependable flicks, and designed for optimal flight. This midrange has a beaded, low profile shape that allows it to feel comfortable in the hand and release smooth on every throw. The convex lower wing provides a surprising amount of glide for such an overstable disc, allowing the MD5 to fade further than other mid-ranges in its class."
The velocity required to reach a disc's optimal flight path. Range: 1 to 15.
The measure of lift generated by a disc to stay aloft. Range: 1 to 7.
The velocity, relative to the speed of the disc, required to cause the disc to turn with the direction of spin. Range: +1 to -5.
The low-velocity stability that causes a disc to hook at the end of its flight. Range: 0 to 5.

Phases of Flight
|As the disc slows and spin decreases, the disc pulls out of turn and begins to hook at the end of flight|
|The aerodynamic profile turns the disc with the direction of spin during the high-speed phase of flight|
|The initial thrust forward during the high-speed phase of flight|
