Default DX Cobra Question... help?

So i throw for my mids an elite Z Buzzz thats about 175ish?? pretty new still pretty stable... and my good ol' trusty DX Cobra 180g. The issue I'm having is that when i try to throw an anny that i want to float a pretty good distance before it starts fading back i usually throw the cobra, and it usually works, but on shorter higher ones when it stalls and dies high and fades hard. It could be cause im just not getting enough on. But i was wondering if it was maybe the weight, or the disc itself??

thanks in advance for the input folks!!

Sounds like exactly what should happen when throwing high. Power it through the turn.

i was thinking that the cobra was under-stable enough to hold the anny line till it gets closer to the ground??

Watch the nose. I've noticed that I was throwing nose up when making a severe anhyzer. I was pointing the nose in the direction of the turn which would cause the disc to stall. It feels right but the results suck. To fix this problem I kept the anyzer angle but maintained the nose at a lower angle.

In airplane terms keep the roll but lower the pitch. The Cobra will still work it's way to the right.

I actually prefer something a little more stable for a high and short anhyzer. It will still flex back a little (once you work out nose issues) and hit the ground flat eliminating squirrely landings.

I would imagine that there are a whole lot of discs that can fill this spot. I like using my Pro Rhyno. I'm sure a Roc would work just as well.

All that being said, I used to have a nice Pro Cobra that worked perfectly but haven't had the same success with the DX Cobras I've used to replace it.

Like I said it seems to make sense to also turn the nose towards the pin but you really just need to turn the wing.

See if that helps.

dx cobras are awesome and hold the anny line much better then my champ cobras. I just started playing with dx cobras more and more lately. they might make it into my bag.
