Dont have any idea what thats all about, but I have seen people routinely recommend putter only rounds. I think the idea is that if you can get your putter out far enough you should be able to translate to faster discs.
Id still go Leopard, stable mid, Aviar to start.

That sounds like a nose angle issue. Putters fly farther a little nose up, but drivers will stall and fade to death death that way. Get the nose down, and get your weight forward at the hit.

Try this: Stand facing the target with a fairway driver in your hand. Hold your arm out straight so the disc is at eye level or a little above. Now bend your wrist down until you can almost read the weight on the bottom of the flight plate. Hold your wrist like that and try a level backhand. You might throw some worm burners, but those are better than noob hyzers. Keep throwing flat, but adjust the wrist angle until you get some low lazer shots. Now the real trick is to throw the disc up with the nose down because you want the nose down when the disc reaches its apex so it doesn't stall.

I think mid-only rounds would be more interesting. I just don't like the feel of the deep rim most putters have.

Back to your regularly scheduled topic....

When you do x x pause x x, x (after buying it) you want to move like that.

I too throw good D forehands with the discs you mentioned. But cant get S for D or accuracy with them BH. I dropped down to a leopard then stepped up to a wraith and now I'm getting 325 with accuracy. It only took a couple of months of on again off again practice. It was very frustrating at first though.

For me the Buzz lets me know exactly what I'm doing wrong/right more than any other disc. It is very true to how you throw it.

I would tell you to get a fairway driver to get the arm slotting correct.

Never thrown an epic eh? When it turns over like a normal tomahawk it flattens out and proceeds to travel on an s curve another 200ish feet. With the wind at your back 500+ is VERY doable. Regardless if you believe me or not, got my first ace with that disc on a 400FT hole throwing tomahawk
