Shirfan brings up a good point too, do you throw backhand (normal) or forehand (sidearm/flick)?

That being said, if you want something that REALLY won't turn over.... get a Star Boss, they are intense and go a mile if you can throw it right -- I can only get enough snap on mine by throwing it sidearm.
dont encourge him, it took me a month to get him to convert to discraft

That would be like saying that someone that has been playing disc golf for say, 30 years, would have to automatically play better than people like Nate Doss or Nikko Lacastro because they haven't even been alive that long!
Congratulations on missing my point. It doesn't matter if you've been playing one month or ten years, if you're throwing a Surge 380' and turning it over 60% of the time, there is something wrong with your form. That's ok...you don't have to believe me...you throw absolutely perfect and it's completely the disc's fault that it's turning over.

Please, stay out of my thread.

No.
Who are you? I want to go out and find all your videos and a list of your titles since you seem to know so much and be so good. What gives you the right to come in here and tell anyone what they can and can't do and what they are and aren't capable of? Did I ever even ask for anyone's opinion on what I disc to get? Nope. I have every right to get whatever disc I want. I know what I should be throwing better than anyone else. You are nothing. A nobody. You don't even matter. Deal with it.

Trying to not start an insult war.....its just I had the same problem....I was unknowingly anny snapping a star destroyer and barely getting over 300 ft with it.....the pros told me to use slower discs but my pride got the best of me and I made a fool of myself! If your truly throwing flat that disc should go a hell of a lot further than it is! But regardless get a MAX and try your OAT out on that disc. Not insulting just skeptical and trying to help....BTW I suck but learned why I suck on this site...be open to suggestions w/o getting mad no one is trying to insult you or your game.

I might be interested. I have a brand new Z Force that I don't see myself putting into rotation much

For the record, i can throw over 400 and still use the Surge as a straight, out of the box, stable flyer without worry of it turning over. it will flip up sometimes but never "flip over"
It compliments my flippier champ wraith nicely. I hit a 411' downhill ace with an ESP surge a few weeks ago

I'm open to suggestions, when I ask for them. I just can't stand people jumping in my thread and saying that I'm wrong without knowing me at all and just assuming whatever they want. Not everything is the same for everyone. If that was the case, everyone would just tie for 1st place at all the tournaments and disc golf would be worse off than it currently is.
