Right Hand Forehand Throws Just banking hard Left

I was trying to throw some forehands today at the field and man, the discs would just bank up hard left and then some of them literally rolled and rolled and rolled for a LONG time.

I got the champion Sidewinder to fly somewhat correctly on one throw when I was trying really hard to get the disc more level. It still looked pretty nasty though and went pretty high up in the air.

How do you guys keep the nose down and get them to fly out flat?

I used to do the same thing and it's OAT all the way. Eliminate any run up, use straight drivers (for me they were TDs and leopards) and concentrate on keeping your Palm to the sky. Keep throwing and it will happen

More hyzer(finish palm up), and/or a more stable disc. You might want to learn that FH roller though, it's a good shot to have. Getting your weight forward will help keep the nose down as will more snap.

OAT/wrist roll. Make sure your palm finishes pointing toward the sky.

More hyzer/ more stable discs will mask the problem and probably still won't help

This. Keep throwing the sidewinder, understable discs will help you learn proper FH form faster. Overstable discs mask form flaws more easily.

FWIW, a Star Sidewinder was what I really learned to FH with.

We don't really know how he is throwing them. He said he got the Sidewinder to go throwing it more level. More level from anhyzer I suppose given the info we have. At any rate a Sidewinder will turn and burn thrown level or anhyzer with out throwing it quite high. More hyzer will help. If he is throwing level/flat a more stable disc is needed. FWIW I also learned throwing FH with a Sidewinder hence my screen name.

^This, and when mine beat to rollers I used a Ch Wraith for awhile...short while.
Although now I mostly flick FBs destroyers (where needed) and drones (buzzes/rocs/putters out of the rough though)

One common issue I find with people who have that result throwing forehand is that you may not be keeping your elbow tucked into your side. It should be next to your hip. That and finishing with your palm facing up.
