Not all discs are on Innova's scale, so we'd suggest you check this out:

http://inflightguide.net

Generally speaking, the lower the Net Stability, the more understable (e.g. right turning) the disc will be. Anything that has a very negative HST value will have more right-turning tendencies. That said, frequently disc flight will be determined by the archer and not the arrow. Here is a link to some of the other Factors Affecting Disc Flight (not the least of which being player arm speed/power).

This is the one of the most accurate sites for disc flight. Highly recommended.

All disc will veer left for a RHBH as the spin slows. Some more then others but its the laws of nature. This can be combatted with higher spin but as the disc slows mother nature takes over.

Still learning here myself.. so I had/have a similar issue, when throwing RHBH all, even my understable disc, want to fly to the left. My throws will usually start out straight when up to speed, but as they slow all want to fade and curve ending to the left.. the simplest solution I found was learning to throw FH... Instead of the disc naturally fading to the left at the end of the throw, the disc will tend to fade right when thrown FH this is because the disc is spinning in the opposite direction.. Give it a shot.. also when throwing FH I have found that using a stable to over stable disc helps me..

Try a disc like a Discraft Stratus for throwing RHBH. It will turn to the right for you even if you are a new player. Not the longest or fastest disc in the world, but will be perfect for your new game. Watch some videos on technique and how to grip the disc correctly. This should help you get the proper revolutions on the disc.

Is it always true that the flatter the disc the more OS it is? Or is it only with certain molds/plastics? Also is the X-Files the greatest syfy television series of all time?

Not trying to start a fight about whose ratings are better, but that's not entirely true. Disc Golf Center has pretty much all the brands listed with Innova's flight ratings (which I absolutely LOVE). It's kind of like the disc golf world starting to go metric.

That's what I've heard from multiple sources, but I can't say for sure.

And on the X-Files, it's great, but I still gotta go for a tie between Doctor Who and Stargate SG1.

(Hey, half a post being disc golf related still counts.)
