Ok, so I know this is an odd question but here it goes. I am an ambidextrous player so would I attain the same line you speak of buy throwing with my other hand rather than a sidearm for the same shot, based on the advice above? Thanks in advance.

I've never understood the term"snap" so please explain what your asking about. I've heard it used for multiple parts of the throw.

Throwing with your other hand will allow you to flip a disc up then letting it hyzer which is difficult to do with a sidearm. So if you could id say switch arms not shot

Paul,

Any advice for a predominantly sidearm player who is developing a backhand? I use the Krait as my backhand distance driver but find I need to power down sidearm to avoid it turning over (compared to the Wraith). I think part of the Kraits lack of popularity is the other discs with similar stability ratings (5 glide, 1 turn, 2 fade) tend to be flippier. The Krait is very controllable thrown backhand but can be turned over when really cranked on. They made a Star plastic version with the pumpkin stamp for Halloween.

Sidearm always flips discs over thats why people normally throw firebirds,max excalibers ect. I'm yet to throw the star krait.

No doubt. The PD2 is another great sidearm driver. C-line is OOP which is a shame. You also want to have some discs with more control that aren't going to fade super hard (Wraith). This is why I'm working on my backhand.

Thanks Paul.
