Aside from my form, which could use quite a bit of work, might some property of the disc be causing this? The only two things I could think of are the softness/springiness of the disc was causing it to deform as I put some speed on it or the grippiness of the x-link was causing problems. My buzzz flies dead straight, but is a much stiffer disc.
The Obex is predictable for me, but I have found that I have to give it a hyzer release if I really want to crank on it. That gives me a straight flight of about 275', with a good, sharp, reliable fade.
