What good is asking the same question as the thread title for a second time? Are you expecting more, different answers? Are you expecting the previous responders to all be in agreement?

There is no end all disc for this like everything in disc golf. Whatever disc you like and it can turn to the ground enough for you to roll it is right. This disc will be different for everyone based on release angle and arm speed and the type of roll you want.

I say try some discs from friends and get an idea what disc you want. As far as a premium plastic disc that rolls as easily as a dx beast. I would say a D6, sail, mamba, king would work. You could also get a used premium beast and break it in more.

Some people prefer cut rollers, some folks prefer big sky rollers. Everyone has a different approach and style to how they get their rollers down.

I don’t mess with FH rollers unless it’s a pitch out of the junk. I usually only reserve BH rollers for wide open ball golf style courses where it will get me more distance than an air shot. I’ve got a beat up X heat that is perfect for my BH roller game though. Flips quick and is easy to get down, but doesn’t burn out too quickly.

I am using a Archer for backhand rollers as well as forehand. I like the wide edge for rolling as well as the disc being US a tad. I love the wider rim driver and went with as slow a disc as I can use for backhand, also happens to work for forehand rollers though I can use about anything as my forehand roller for discs in my bag except my main putting putters, Magnets and Titanic's are hard to roll right.

I also have seen from my brother a Roadrunner as his disc both backhand and forehand unless he was doing a much shorter roller in that case it was forehand with a Gator higher weight of 172 grams or more. My dad used a 149 gram Archangel as his backhand roller. Forehand he used a Firebird or His Tee Rex which is now an Excaliber for driving rollers, everything else midrange he used an older forehand and backhand Eagle. Dad never really did short rollers and preferred to do a low ground shot or skip shot near the basket like me.

Not Sure what one uncle did but another he used a Whippet until all his old discs got lost in a fire. Not sure what he prefers for backhand now but he dose use whatever is the slowest disc he can use forehand for his roller even if that is a putter.
