I personally enjoy a nice champ banshee for distance shots and an Opto Trident for touch shots. In the case of the trident, you can put a 45 degree anhyzer on it, throw it with good power, and it'll still fade!

For a driver that's not so overstable, try an Eagle.
The current champ and DX firebirds are pretty flat and good for FH throws. Those are what I use right now. I've also had luck with Beast, Eagle and Flick.

I have completely taught myself, thus i am sure i have some wrong techniques, so i am hoping a lower speed disc will help me to go back and learn. Any suggestions for a lower speed side arm disc? (i hear teebird often, but the reviews i see for sidearm throws are very negative)
The Z Crush is my sidearm workhorse disc. Overstable but workably so, flat top, reliable and fights wind. A wide rim disc will give better distance but when controlled hyzer finish is called for I Crush.
