Best Sidearm disc

Currently using a DX TeeRex that i found (hush, normally i try to find the owner, but the disc had 4 different numbers already on it.) and getting around 250-300' out of it

No Luck with my old DX destroyer.

Looking for another long distance sidearm disc, and don't know what to get

Oh boy Star Xcalibur. Does it every time for me. For FH Anhyzers I prefer the Wraith. Nuke is also a GREAT disc for FH.

TeeRex is a great sidearm disc! I went from that to a wraith to a Surge SS for my distance driver.
IMO the Reaper, Banshee, X-Clone, FL, and Starfire all make good sidearm discs as well.

I've thrown a 175g Star Xcaliber FH since they came out. I've always loved them till about a week ago when I tried out a Destroyer again. It flies the exact same lines with 3/4 power as my Xcal did on a full rip...and it was way more accurate for it.

To the OP: A Teerex can be a good FH disc. The problem is there are several different molds that some people prefer compared to the others. If you feel like the Teerex is fading too hard too early, try a Destroyer. If you feel like its flipping too much, stick with the Teerex until you get your form ironed out. The Xcaliber, while it is great for some deep distance, always fades extremely hard. That's the reason it actually got throw only once a day or so unless it was in the field.

EDIT: I re-thought my advice. The Teerex and the Destroyer would probably be fairly comparable for FH. I'm a little fuzzy because its been over a year since I last held a Teerex.

I use a beat to crap star teerex that I found in the bottom of the lake (without a name). I am not FH dominant or even very good FH but it gets the job done if I need to throw that way.

I have a bunch that i've tried forehand.
boss (R-pro, star)
destroyer (dx, star)
teerex (dx, star)
tbird (star)
wraith (star)

the bosses and destroyers go 300-330 feet for me but have to be thrown just right. If thrown wrong, they go 200 and hard right/spud.

Lately been throwing fh's with an opto striker @ 275-300 consistently, it seems less touchy than anything I've tried b4.
