If the left side is open sky or at least big enough gaps I will throw a thumber. If I have to throw backhand I've used a Stratus and beat up pro-d Buzzz with success as long as I release them flat and fast. 'As long as' being the operative part of that statement.

I have found that the release needed to throw a Frisbee is with a lot of hyzer (they flip up naturally). I think this is a great idea, but I would also try using a putter and see if that works even a little better in learning the proper release angles.

I use a beat in DX Roc for most of my turnover shots. Leopard or Sidewinder for longer throws and beat DX Aviar for short annys.

For me there are 2 easy choices.

1 - Midrange - I use a Discraft Stratus, This disc fly's just like a Buzzz or a Roc would, however it fades to the right with stunning predictability. I love it.

2 - For longer shots - I use an Innova Sidewinder or an Avenger SS, The Sidewinder will pull over more consistently for me (It's in Champ plastic) and at the tail end of it's flight it will come back very little. For the Avenger SS I have to throw harder to roll (even though it is basically the same as a Sidewinder). But it is better for me on longer shots, or hyzer flip style shots.

just my .02.


OH BTW - I wanted to add, for all of these shots, I release perfectly flat, no hyzer or anhyzer....just a nice straight (flat) release.

For long right turns I throw a Star Roadrunner. For short midrange right turns, I throw a Discraft Stratus. For going around a tree or something, I just throw my Soft Magnet with a lot of anny.

I have a really beat up wraith that flies right for me perfectly. My recommendation is a beast if you have the arm speed you can just let the disc do all the work and it'll take really nice right turns for ya. Otherwise there is always the forehand...or the hammer/tomahawk

Ya, beat up a disc- really bad.
I had a Teebird in Dx that I beat to oblivion.
It would fade right instead of left but with very little loss of distance.
For a new disc I would stay go for the lightest most understable disc you can stand.
That should go right for you.
Just my two cents...

I have a 155 Monarch, and that thing will turn right. I would use it, but I get more distance out of my Star Roadrunner. About 100ft more.

*For a shorter hole that turns right off of the teebox, I will throw a Discraft Buzzz anhyzer.
*For a shorter hole that turns right later in the fairway, I will throw an Innova Stingray (hyzer flip).
*For a longer hole that turns right late in the fairway, I will throw either a Vakyrie or Beast (hyzer flip). I love throwing that shot when you get the disc to turn when you want it to...it's a beautiful thing.

Nice to see some love for the Stratus here. That's what I use when it absolutely positively has to turn right. (And doesn't need to go more than 200 feet.)
