A Destroyer is a great distance driver to forehand. However, if you’re trying to work on the form on not just mash everything, I’d suggest a Champ Beast. It’ll give you easy forehand distance when tossed correctly and will show the flaws in your form.

Any of the big name overstable distance drivers are a good choice. Everything depends on what feels best in your hand.

Forehand distance drivers I've thrown and and liked: D1, D2, Dimension, Destroyer, XCal, Nitro, Octane, Enforcer, Defender, Scorpius, Groove (don't laugh, 400 ft FH is no joke), D3, Tern, X2.

Tesla. I use my PDGA membership Telsa for forehands, some overhands, and as a general utility disc. It's pretty great.

Those weights would be good, since you're comfortable with them already.

Let's see...
-I really like the pop-top/domey s-line pd2 that I have however, I can't seem to find one that fly's even close
-My old swirly s-line pd2 has beat too much
-D2 400G not flat but not domey, lost it can't find another similar. Everyone that I have found are either flat or something
-D3 400G too understable for what I'm looking for
-champ destroyer, too beefy
-trespass (lucid/moonshine) too understable for what Im looking for
- glow CD2 really nice for a while until it started flipping over (great flex lines now)
- bio defender, beefy but looking for it to beat in a little
-beat lucid defender, holds whatever line dumps hard at the end, no flex or turn whatsoever. Not very forgiving
Thanks

If Trespass too under stable but defender too beefy an enforcer might work. My buddy's go to FH fwiw.

Or if you're cycling Destroyers anyway, try a star Destroyer

I haven't started cycling destroyers yet. They'll be here within the week...
The bio defender is overstable however it's brand new, only threw it a couple times. It needs to beat in a little
The lucid one is pretty beat and holds whatever line dumps hard at the end, no flex or turn whatsoever. Not very forgiving

Thinking the enforcer would be too overstable, more than the defender, correct?

You could be right on the Enforcer, I've only thrown one and although it flew relatively less stable than my defender it might have been because it was worn in... sorry if I have their stabilities mixed.

One week? Might as well try your Destroyers

Domey or Pop-top XCals.

When new and thrown with a touch of anny, they hold a line better than the Destroyer with reliable fade.

When beat-in, they are amazing for hyzer-flip distance. Not to mention, really beat-in pop tops BOMB when backhanded. Watch Brinster throw his teal proto-stars.

They also power down quite well.

PS... the PD2 is an XCal variant.

Ill recommend an ESP Force. Has a ton of glide and very reliable for FHs
