KJ swirly stars are pretty stable, as are luster champs.

Not sure what year my Jen Allen Teebird is, but it's pretty OS. You'd likely like it for FHs...

I don't know why this idea sticks around that you want super overstable discs for forehands. That's great if you want a dumping fade, but you shouldn't rely on OS discs to hide your crappy form. I bag a beefy Star Teebird and a much less stable GStar Teebird that goes much farther and much straighter. I love forehanding both.

I only use FH when I need it to fade right (OS), all other shots are covered with my BH.

That is fair, but a less stable disc will get you longer distance before the fade takes over. My GStar Teebird isn't flippy by any means, but it holds straighter a good 30' longer than my beefy Star, and it has a similar fade at the end.

And my local course has a hole where the only way I've seen anyone reach C1 is a forehand flex/turnover (#9 Veterans Memorial in Parma OH). Such a fun line to hit!

My FH form is impeccable & I type that with no ego. A very stable Teebird just gives me a lot of reliability that I can count on. It's having to dial back the power off the tee where it's tricky with less stable discs.

The 17 Jen Allen's are what you want. I've thrown it about the same as my 17 Sexton firebird and it is more (over) stable. They are great power forehand discs.

The most OS Tbird I've thrown is the Brinster Champ Tbird.
