I would just go ahead and pick up some discs that are good backhand workhorses too. Namely, check out a nice star teebird.

For a mid to FH, I really like the new buzzz OS - it's got a zone-shaped...

I was looking for the same thing - a disc that would turn with minimal effort on a clean release. For me, a DX wedge turned like no other but it flew like a brick.

Sidewinder, could you or someone else let me know what PHS stands for? Pre-hop-stance? I can only imagine that it's explained in one of the videos but I'm at work.

Thanks.

I guess the Wedge is pretty shallow, but bleh.

I like rhynos as a nice, shallow, stable putter.

I have some softs that are more flexible than SS in the suregrip plastic. The stiffest wizards I have held have been softs and organics. Again, all over the map... but that's why we love them, right?...

I prefer OS putters not due to the flightpath but because of the physical dimensions. More shallow and beaded! Plus they don't blow past very far... :gross::doh::cool:

For what it's worth, I own a star valk and a G-line saint at the same weight (168) and get more turn out of the saint. That being said, the saint dumps much harder at the end of its flight.

DX cobras around 160ish - very shallow rim and would be a better putter than stingrays.

I would say sharks but I feel like you can get a better frisbee flight from cobras. I would say comets too...
