Ok, serious question, I have only been throwing backhands for a few months, and I am at around 300. I like stable discs (-2 2) and have a valkyrie, beast, and archon. With my distance/experience, which one should I throw as my go to?

Whichever one is most consistent for you. Go with the one that you know what it will do. Then if you mess up, you can't blame the disc. Take responsibility, fix your form and keep working at it.

But if I had to choose one of those listed, I would say the Valk.

Why are my longest rhbh throws heading off at 2:00 (way right)?

I've talked to other beginners & they have the same issue.

I'd guess this means a better release, but is there any sage advice for getting that release to occur at 12:00?

We'll need more information, like what disc you're throwing to be able to help you with this queston. And how far are you throwing it?

Do you mean it leaves your hand, and goes to 2:00 right away? That just means you're holding on a bit too long. Throw slower and smoother to get your timing down better.

hey thanks,

I've done it with diamond & L13,; Lady friends with diamond, river, and leopard -- we are good newbies, throwing nice understable discs like we're told .

Generally starts with anny flight at 1:00, holds the turnover line to 2:15, usually with a small fade of 0:15 at the end.

Again though, these are PB throws by 10% more (for me that means 30', 25' for my lady friends).

I apologize but I am having a bit of trouble understanding your post. I can tell you that it sounds like your Diamond is doing what it should. If it is going too far right for you, try to throw it with a little more hyzer, instead of throwing it flat. It should stay straighter longer, then flip flap and turn right later in the flight path. This is called a hyzer-flip. You have probably seen that term used here before.

Well, thanks for trying. I have tried hyzer flips with the diamond and the L13, and, while I do get some nice, controllable drives, the distance isn't as great as the 2:00 uncontrolled flights.

Sorry I can't be clearer. Maybe it's one of those "you had to be there" kind of things.

Sounds like you may be pulling your disc in an arc around your body, so the point where the disc rips out can vary left to right. Try working on a straight line from where you pull your disc back across your body. You'll get better speed and hopefully be able to duplicate those longer throws but with more control and more consistent aim.
