Need some a little more stable than a Leopard

Ok so I have a noodle arm and I couldn't turn anything over so I figured a 150 Dx Leo would do the trick..well it did. Problem is I'm now starting to outgrow it. If I put any power behind it it just crashes and burns. I can throw it on a hyzer and it will pop flat and turn but even then sometimes it turns too much when I get a bit zealous with it. I think if I get something a little less understable I can get some more distance out of it.

So what do you think I should try next? Maybe a Leo in different plastic and a bit heavier? Different disc? Id like to keep the speed relatively close because I feel that that a good speed for me at this point....

any recommendations?

Yeah you could try one in another plastic in the Low 160's, if your set on 150 class discs, you could try a lightweight Teebird, Eagle L, Sabre, JLS, XL, any of those are available in low weights and pretty workable for people who don't get much distance.

I would try a Champ or Star in the high 160's maybe low 170's, if that doesn't work the next logical step is the TL.

Nope I actually want to try and get away from 150 discs..the wind kills them. Probably something in the 160-165 range

Just get a heavier Leo in Star or Champ. I don't know how far your throwing but for a person with a "noodle arm" I'd say get a Leo in a weight around 165.

Champion Leopards are some of the straightest discs I have ever seen. You won't be disappointed.
