Dan Beato vids helped me.. the flat reverse punch release helps you get the shot straight. Look where your disc is before you throw, lean in two feet and see what your disc sees not where your head usually is.

Mids are key with a planted stance, I fall back to my Comet or Axis. Totally planted usually means a Comet I don't need to move anything but my arm to get the flight I want. A light 150ish driver is handy too for the same reasons, including short turnover OH shots. Don't underestimate the OH or thumber whatever you call it, it's a great short park shot, ridiculously easy to control with little skill.

My favorite discs in the woods.. Comet, Ion, Axis, Stalker, the Volt, Roadrunner, less stable easier to power down and they all throw very similar to each other with slightly different lines.

Firebird too 160 ish is my goto for OH (primarily), FH and stable shots in all conditions, my 174 Volt competes with a 160 FB for similar shots.
