Default Disc Suggestions for RHFH drives.

Iv been practicing FH drives for a week with a Havoc GL 170gm and finding it too under stable.
Looking at the numbers and narrowed it down to The Sorcerer, Sword, Cutlass and a Boatman. Any feedback on these discs ( plastic or weight) or suggestions on other discs will,help. Thank You.

I was going to just say that any disc is good for FH shots, but Havocs are pretty flippy.

What other discs/drivers do you have? I'd just throw whatever else you have and see how it works, then see what you're missing from there. How far are your forehands?

Sorcerer and Sword, from backhand throws with them quite some time ago, are pretty neutral turn/fade long discs. The Boatman is pretty stable-overstable and will handle a right finishing forehand shot.

Any disc in your bag that you can BH you should be able to FH.

First of all, we're all gonna want to know how the Havoc is flying for you (i.e. how far and what kind of flight path?)

While I agree that you SHOULD be able to throw anything forehand, I also totally understand throwing something less flippy. That makes it way easier to get consistent throws... Sorry, I'm not super familiar with Trilogy molds, but first I'd want to know what the Havoc is doing. If those discs are a step up in overstability, then they'll probably work. As slowplastic asked, do you have any other discs lying around? I'm more comfortable with Discraft and Innova stuff... my current "open field FH distance" discs (with a tailwind or pretty neutral conditions) are either a Z Crank or Champion Katana, but I've also found Cranks and Katanas that were too flippy.

People will say that you can FH any disc, but there are discs better suited for FH. You don't want a big dome, and a higher shoulder helps the release be more even.

Sword is a good call actually.

Iv been using the Havoc because is the fastest disc I have, never used it much I didn't have much arm for it BH. My distance driver is a Saint GL 165gm generally gets me to the 300' mark. That and my Rivers for fairway shots are very predictable. Today iv reached 350' FH the Havoc with a nice S flight. But generally I just flip it over.

Cool, a Havoc getting squirrelly at 350' FH is really reasonable. Are you throwing it flat, a hyzer flip, or are you starting it turned over?

A Sword/Sorcerer should be a bit more stability and still get you the full distance flight, although again I have only thrown those two discs along with the Havoc backhand (the Sword and Sorcerer were very similar for my few throws). They still aren't overstable discs though. If you want to go a notch up in stability and have a bit more controlled golf shots then maybe a Trespass, it should do milder turn and be more likely to fade out. I certainly wouldn't count on throwing a Sorcerer or Sword with 350' FH power and any wind present.

I havnt been trying to turn it over, just trying to get a some what straight throw with a predictable fade without it crashing. But I'm sure its my form that's faulty, and looking to find a disc that fits my form is backwards.
Thanks for the help guys.

It isn't necessarily your form, you're throwing it a long ways...on backhands I have found Havocs very understable (but also very potentially long fliers) so I'm sure it'd be finicky on forehands. I'd look at a Trespass if you want a long but predictable/straight-ish throw with fade. I throw forehands a bit farther than you and I use a beat Destroyer that's basically like a Trespass for that role.

Trespass is not at all a bad Recomendation. I'd say anything without more than -1 turn, and 3 or less fade would be a good starting point.

It's quickest to learn with very overstable discs, which is what I did, but it's taken me years to clean up my form. Trespass, Sword or similar would do very well.
