Starfire is speed 5 on Joe’s Flight Chart (minimum distance 325 – 375’). With a reasonably clean throw, the Eagle and Buzzz should be excellent forehand discs. Work towards being able to throw everything in your bag forehand as well as backhand.

Slower drivers are your friends. Trying to throw faster drivers may cause you to mess up your form. Ask me how I know this.

You may wish to try some lighter drivers, maybe mid-high 160s. Lighter discs should fly farther than their heavier brethren while sharing similar flight characteristics. As an experiment, try throwing the same disc in different weights to see what works best for you.
