You should see me play other sports: club golf I play left handed but putt righty; in tennis I serve lefty, switch hands after serving, and then play right handed; play baseball lefthanded; write right handed; kick right footed....basically I'm just totally messed up!

I'm right handed, but I'm ambidextrous and can bat left or right handed and kick a football left or right footed. If I get the putting yips, I'll try putting RH with a left handed grip or putt LH with a RH grip. DG has been mostly RHBH, though...

Same but b/c no one's given me a lefty putter yet. I ****ing suck at ball golf either way though. I'm right hand dominant but I started playing ball golf lefty to work out the weak side.

Tursas is flippin' sweet, literally. Looking forward to warm weather to beat it in and see how it really compares to my beloved Fuses.

lol, i understand well
i eat lefty, write righty, throw balls lefty but throw frisbee RHBH (or LHFH) i started batting righty but now bat better left. kick rightfooted. i miss the nail with the hammer equally well with both hands.

my mom is a lefty
i think everything i learned at home as a kid i do lefty and the things i learned at school i learned righty, but thats just my theory.

I find the Tursas to be more controllable, and it seldom turns and burns for me.
Sorry, I forgot to thank you for your input!

Definitely going for the Tursas in the VIP plastic...just trying to decide 166g or 169g or 171g.

I know it's only 3-5 grams difference but strange question here: on a 60% throw does a lighter understable disc turnover more/easier than a heavier disc?

There are a couple places on my new home course where I tend to end up, needing an understable disc to turn for me at 50-60% power.

Thanks again for the comparison between the Tursas and Warrant!

Flick a Zone instead, or a Harp.

Still working on that shot, well, any forehand for that matter. Trying to hit that shot with a backhand right now until I can get some warmer/non-rainy weather and am able to get out and truly work on my forehand and get it consistent. Thanks for that input!

Theoretically... Yes. However, you probably will not see a huge difference or any for that matter. Discs that are the same weight can also vary from stable to understable.

Just messing with ya, 3B. I shared your chase for magical discs for a while and still do somewhat. I daresay you probably have a shortish turnover disc laying around somewhere. Do you still have a Comet? That's my turnover mid of choice.

I've been playing about a year longer than you. FH has come easier for me due to a baseball background. Been working on form and have just now begun to consistently push BH drives past 320'.

If you work on your FH, you'll be better at it a month from now than you are today. Probably 50% of my shots are FH, I'd be lost without it. Most of my FH upshots are stand still so I'd practice those to begin with.
