I'm still not very good at gauging how far the disc will fade yet. The beast was fading a little hard for my liking. But, as I said earlier, when I got a good toss in, the beast was wonderful. I'm not knocking the beast, I just think i need a slower disc for now.

Now that we got the disc golf issues out of the way, maybe we can talk about the other hooking problem?

Pimp been hard on you?



*of course I'm just kidding*

Don't throw them away, throw them forehand.
I'm fairly certain that's because the ratio of "speed:spin" is higher throwing forehand throws than it is backhand. While something like this can vary on an individual basis, I think it's true for most players.
That's why most people who throw forehand tend to use more overstable discs for straighter shots.

I think this is very untrue,I just think it's because forehand is so much easier to apply massive amounts of OAT too,I prefer understable-stable discs when i'm trying to go straight,my favorite is the OLS mold,which is a sidewinder top(I think)with some other bottom,or something like that.

Ever since I've started throwing the z comet and z buzzz, the hook had pretty much gone away. Occasionally with the buzzz, the disc hooks a little left, but I think it's a nose angle issue. The comet usually ends up staying on the line I throw. It really is a solid disc for me
