With those distances I suspect you're getting a pretty snappy/spin type release instead of a leveraged velocity one. Because throwing 160' with a putter is a very high % of your max distance you are comfortable with. I know when I FH putters I pop or snap them more than leverage them, because I pretty much never throw them over 175' on the course and I want to make sure I don't torque them.

So I'm thinking your really clean putter and catch disc FH shots maybe are teaching you to be more snappy/spinny in a way that doesn't translate as well to golf discs, which like speed and just need enough spin as necessary.

Try to feel the leverage THROUGH the hit and have your upper arm and shoulders swing together as a unit like in SW's video. But have the confidence of snapping through the hit like you do with a putter so the disc still comes out clean. Often times elbow pain is from extending the arm to the target, elbow way ahead of shoulder at that intermediate stage of the throw, so it feels more like cracking a whip at the release to cause spin/snap rather than slinging the disc through that point and finishing with the arm swinging through.

Everyone has an 'ideal' weight, be it backhand or forehand (mine has always been the mid-160-class, YMMV), and you just need to find what works best for you.
