yellow green black clear and white are worthless and for busters

Sorry, white and clear are the BEST colors; they mold up more true.
A 4 dollar pack of dye will allow you to color an easy dozen discs to your preferred color...all this without affecting how they mold up.

Don't forget you're talking to someone that plays with snow on the ground 5 months out of the year.;)

Im not sure if this is a ME issue or not. I been having trouble with my distance forehand since going to mvp/axiom.
I used to throw a Force as my distance forehand. My style was "am1 forehand" (as mcbeth likes to call it). Throw my Force on a hard forehand anny and let it fight out.
I could get about 350-390ft with it and get a ton of consistency. It was effortless and accurate and saved me tons of strokes.
NOW
Im using Octanes/Photons/Wraths and i cant throw them forehand on the same line.
All those discs will sometimes hold the forced anny line wayyy too long before it fights out. So it either buries in the ground or im way left of my target.
If i release these flat, i get no distance and they tail hard right.

My question. Did anyone else notice these issues? Is there a technique to throwing gyro forehand? (Like try and limit the wrist snap to slow the spin down a little?) Should i try a diff disc?

*i have also tried a Nitro and Fireball and have the same issue.

Any help is appreciated. I feel like im losing a clutch part of my game.

Volt: flat
Motion: anny
150 class Phase: anny

Emoney, your FH sounds longer than mine but I think I know what you're talking about. I haven't thrown a lot of gyro stuff that has that really stout HSS like a Force does but the Motion is one that I think would work for that. Octane, Wraths and Photons like to be thrown flat or with just a tiny bit of anny. It's kind of the same thing with BHing gyro, they like a good deal more spin than non-gyro to lock onto a flat line and hold it before fading. If you want something slower, a Resistor should hold an AM1 FH as well.

My first foray into MVP has been an Elaine King Fission Photon. It's super light (143g) and the flight plate is super gummy and paper thin. I almost feel like my thumb is going to punch through the top. Is that how all Fission plastic is or did I go too light/get an anomaly

ime i tried to replace the wraith which seems to be the force for you

i couldnt do it i tried a variety of molds and plastic types from mvp and axium and i couldnt so i stuck with wraiths for dd

all my fh techniques is same from mvp to innova to trilogy to discraft and putters to mids to drivers

maybe release your discs with a touch less anny or just continue to throw the force cuz its money for you
