^^^^ I agree with this too. Katanas are a bit too understable for my sidearm. I picked up a Pro and unfortunately it doesn't have a place in my bag.

I have several early run champion and star that are hooks, more overstable than a destroyer. I haven't thrown the newer star and champ katanas though but the old ones flew like a totally different mold than the pro katanas.

I would not, in general, put those two disc together.

My famous Katana is a FLAT Star and it was over stable when I got it and it was my go to sidearm until it got beat now it flys like around -2 turn. And fade is still at a 3.

Thanks a lot! My sidearm game is fairly new but shows a world of ripping potential.

Well I did find mine out in a field that had recently been mowed, and it was very evidently sun bleached and weathered So that might be why, but my katana is almost more overstable than my boss. Honest

I don't turn my Firebird or Predator over, and I certainly don't turn my Trident over. Released with a bit of anhyzer they start with a smidge of turn and then flatten out. Except for the Trident. I could release that with extreme OAT and it would just fly straighter for longer than expected. If I want a nice, long turnover drive forehand I whip out the beat 11x Star Wraith that I won't know how to replace (which is light yellow/cream and dying to bury itself in a pile of leaves).

like wake said your prob rolling your wrist over. try flicking a fairway driver and if it comes out of you hand wobbling like a soggy waffle then you got some oat in you throw.

Also check out Mike C's vids on forehands. Sometimes videos are just much better than reading.

This is also from Mike's channel, a very good ultimate vid that's been posted around:
