Default good disc for a strong forehand throw.

I throw sidearm and I really get some power behind my drives, Mostly from the wrist. I haven't had any luck with anything but star plastic. Most discs turn over to the left like crazy, but I have had a lot of luck with a star katana, (straight for a good 300 feet) and a discraft predator. I hate wasting money on discs that aren't right for me. I know I need to look for over stable drivers, but what are some good discs that aren't easily over-spun?

I rock a Westside VIP Boatman for my FH shots.
Just a solid, solid FH disc.

Kinda like Innova's wraith, but you might want to try the Boatman out in Tournament, if you're partial to star plastic.

The more overstable the disc is, the more it's going to resist turning and burning.

However, even understable discs can be thrown for long distance forehand with power as long as your form is clean. If you need overstable discs to get distance, you have work to do on your form.

When I need ~300 feet straight ahead, I throw either a Sirius JLS or a Champion Cobra. Then again, I'm not very strong. Anyways, that's what works for me, but it may not work for you. Good luck!

I like FLs, FBs and Destroyers. I do flick stable/understable stuff if circumstances call for it.

Like someone said above, it is a form issue. If you want some you can crank on and have it come back then Nuke/Nuke OS, XXX, Trident, Boatman are all ones that I like to use.

If you give us some distances for what you are throwing we can give you better answers(+what disc and condition.)

This is a sure sign of having form issues. If you're just looking to have fun, try a Firebird. If you are dedicated to learning to throw far with good form, try a Comet.
