Champ Boss is one of my longest forehand molds, should go a LOT further than 300 ft... I would suggest discing down, try a Champion Starfire or Champion Wraith. If not an Innova loyalist, the Discraft Z Crush and Surge are good choices too.

If I threw a lot farther than 300 FH I would be driving as far as the farthest FH throwing pros, right? I've tried a champion orc, champ beast, Starmax, g star krait, halo, monarch champ, g star boss, champ groove, pro leopard and champ term. But ill try a wraith sometime.

Top end pros are throwing forehands closer to the 450' range, so you have a lot of room for growth before you're there. Also, raw D isn't the only thing to be concerned with. Control and line-shaping ability are more important long-term than throwing far, as fun as tossing bombs is.

I would second this. At 300' for a general purpose FH driver you really don't want to be messing with anything close to max speed. You've probably already developed some form issues if you drive with the Boss as your go to.

I'd strongly suggest finding a stable fairway driver that feels comfortable in your forehand grip, and working with that until you can at least get it as far as you currently do your Boss.

I would suggest a Teebird, Eagle-X or the Starfire Thugnificent mentioned. They are stable enough to be true workhorse drivers and hold up to moderate wind, but not so fast and overstable that they will hide massive form flaws.

Also, try to see how far you can forehand your mids and putters sometime just for fun. They will really show you how clean your form is. Being able to flick a putter or a mid for shots under 250' is incredibly useful on holes with tight fairways.

I'd try around 168-171g and start from there. Little more glide than max weight but heavy enough to fly stable without a doubt.

I like to push the Champion Viking for developing forehanders too, ditto for the Z Tracker.

Champion Orc is a great forehand disc too, since you already own one, I would suggest working with that a bit, provided it is a flat Orc and not a goofball dome monster one.

My champ orc seems pretty flat. I threw it about 30 ft or so shorter than the boss.

Should I also buy a blizzard disc to try? I would get some father drives because of the light weight and the light weight would also force me to improve my form, right?
