What throw(s) should I start trying to master next?

At the moment, I have a pretty good backhand drive(300-350 depending on the disc), serviceable forehand (200ish, just a get out of trouble shot basically), and a pretty good thumber/tomahawk(300ish). I can throw a decent hyzer and hyzer flip, but past those and the basics, I can't really do much. What other types of shots would help my game?

Yeah, that's one thing I plan on spending a lot of time on this summer, definitely the weakest part of my game right now.

Go play a round all rollers and turbo putts. Then play several more. Repeat.

I can throw a wicked Tommy about 350 feet....with an Aerobie Epic.

To the OP: there was a video made a couple years back hosted by Ken Clink and Dave Feldberg that will be a huge help to you. Its by Innova, and I think its just called "Disc Golf Fundamentals Volume 1" but I could be wrong. Either way, its available on Marshall Street.

One thing that helped me with anhyzers (and it is a very important shot...Id learn it before rollers) was learning to throw a pure anhyzer with an Overstable disc. Not a flex shot, but a smooth anhyzer line the whole way. It took a lot of practice but I'm now comfortable throwing anhyzers with just about any disc.

I dont know about turbo putting... I can turbo putt pretty well (around 75% from 20 feet), but I honestly never do. I just don't see a need for it.
