Long distance forehands is to disc golf what CTE is to football, sort of.
Notice how all the long distance forehand players are falling to injury ?
The human body is not designed to throw forehands, so you keep torquing it in that manner, you will get injuries, sometimes serious injuries.

Someone doesn’t have a decent forehand game...

I think the Falcon has some serious distance potential forehand. Just stable enough to not turn all the way. I’m a joe blow recreational player and have touched 400’ with it a couple times now which is pretty dang far for most of us.

I threw a few practice holes with Chris Clemons Sunday and he was absolutely HAMMERING the longest forehands I've ever seen. I believe he was using a Warhorse and was throwing 450 ft hyzers. I saw him park the baseball field hole 5 shots in a row. Kind of disappointing to see him lay it up yesterday on that hole after seeing him park it so many times.

That's what these subjects make me think of. No disrespect to the OP or contributors.

Have you ever seen or held, much less thrown a 119g 40 mold?

Try Forehanding it 550 ft.

Exactly. And if Jeff H. ever gives you those stories you asked for, your book will hit the bestseller list in record time. That guy has been around and has seen A LOT!

I’ve never heard of a 40 mold, is it like a fastback?

I’ve got a 120 Yikun dog disc that I practice touch shots with, can finesse it maybe 250 FH. If it’s anything at all in that class of disc that would take some serious snap.
