Disc Suggestions

My son throws RHFH with a TeeRex. He says he loves the Tee Rex and we upgraded him from DX to Star, but he continues to have trouble flattening it out and it also sails right as it tails off an awful lot. I do not throw FH so I was wondering if anyone could recomend a better disc for him that may help him flatten it out.

The Tee Rex is a quite overstable disc, and inless you have the power behind it, its not going to flatten out.

listen to the people that throw FH as that is my weakest shot. BUT yesterday I tried it with a Groove somebody gave me and it flew fast and straight with a nice predictable fade off at the end, nothing too severe. So far its the only disc I've been able to forehand with control. I'm excited to see what everyone suggests so I can try them it too.

So maybe I'll tell him to throw with more power?

What kind of distance is he getting?

(I throw LHFH)

I am a gazelle fanatic and can throw upto 300' dead straight.

I somehow FH an archangel about 400' one day too...never have replicated it or tried.

Point is I think something a little more stable and a little slower would probably get better results.

The Teebird or Valkyrie might be better for him, although Im not sure how big he is or how far hes throwin. I'd advise against a Boss, Groove, Xcal, Max if hes having trouble with a Star TeeRex.

Hey even Innova says its good for side arm...haha.

I don't know, it was my first disc and I do really well with it...and its about as close to stable as you can get without going under/over...and slow enough to not bomb (I have an Orc and absolutely cannot throw it yet...I get maybe 10' on the Gaz)

If it is going off too much to the right, he needs to try something slower or less stable or both. A teerex is a very fast, very stable disc. When the websites recommend it for forehanders, that is because you generally throw a slightly faster, more stable disc forehand than backhand because it is easier to get snap/spin on it.

If you want to stick with a fast disc, that will flatten out more, go with a Beast or a Surge SS.
