Servo is like a JLS or slightly beat eagle. -1HSS 2LSS or so. And the Switch based on videos and testimony is like a leopard or river and easier to turn over.

All depends on your power level thouh.

Not as flat, not super domey either. More comfy in the hand to me than the Servo.

Mine is pretty darn flat. Not a pancake, not quite as flat as the servo, a small shoulder; but I would still put mine in the flat disc stack if I was making three piles on the floor.

What do you guys use for thumbers/tomahawks? I need to learn that throw ASAP. I figured that the Resistor and Shock are the only two logical choices, right?

Firebirds and Whippets are great, Zones are good for short range.

My OH shots are suspect. As you're learning them, you might want to try something less beefy, esp with tomahawks.

I get pretty good results on various angle tommys with an older, more flippy Volt.

BigSky-- throw everything meng!

Understable and Overstable respond different to release angles and speed differences will give you lots of variety in the line/distance.

One of my favorite up shots is a OH thumber with a putter. Also great for tight gaps are volt like discs where you want lots of flex you throw something like a (faster) shock.. Resistor will be very hard to control being SO overstable and slower at this point in the learning stage it isn't a NEED to have OS discs. I still don't get why people say OS discs for these shots majority of the time like its a FH or something.

I prefer the "Skymahawk" super flippy high BH shot which flies like an OH.

This might be the best answer. The typical answer is that you need a very OS disc. But, I may just end up taking my whole bag and throwing it ALL overhand. I really need to work on that shot to get out of trouble at this new course I've been playing. Some of the lies are so poor that the only way out is up and over. If this shot becomes more serviceable, I'll try using it off tee, and for approaches too.

Pretty much every MVP disc is flat, flatter than other brands discs for the most part.
