I would suggest that you try something slower (9-11 speed) such as a Culverin, Longbowman, maybe Convict or something similar, of those that you listed Boatman.

I bought a TP Sorcerer based on the numbers. I was a little disappointed for what I intended it for but it's still a good driver. It's a bit domey, lots of glide, mild turn, and mild fade. Straight to stable as some might say. Definitely not Overstable. I've thrown it backhand and forehand. I throw forehand primarily though as I can control the release angle better.

Volt is a great stable fairway FH disc in my opinion but higher speeds other suggestions are good. You throw a little farther than me though. I get my Volt to about 300 but it's a nice straight to fade line. My volt is fairly OS though.

Thanks for the help guys.
Finding the right disc(s) can help a lot. Sure you might have some things to improve on your form, but it's probably not as bad as you're fearing it is. You probably can improve a lot with little tweaks of your follow through, release angle, and overall smoothness. It's a common mistake to roll the wrist when throwing forehands for power, and your Havoc might be exposing some of that.

Someone suggested lower speed discs. I think lower speed is more important for backhand practice than forehand, but working with some speed 10-11 stuff might be good. For working on smooth release, it helps me to throw slight hyzers with discs that aren't overstable. Maybe try hyzers with something like your Saint or River. If you're rolling your wrist, it won't be pretty. But as you get better at maintaining the integrity of the hyzer release, the low hyzer/hyzerflip becomes a really useful shot on the course.

(I throw these shots with lots of discs, including Undertaker, Beast, Valkyrie, Surge, Crank, Katana...)

^this is a really good suggestion. Try throwing those smooth hyzer with a saint. It'll take some practice but once you get the feel for it you will be happy you took the time to learn it. Then you can get in to hyzer flips which is a great shot to have.

As to your question about discs, swords are pretty good. I get mine to 380' on a forehand, and it has a nice gentle s turn.

I have no BH for drives. I arry several drivers but of the disc I carry these are what I'd suggest:

Overstable - Fireball
Stable - Wrath
Understable - Insanity

All Axiom, in weights in the mid 160s.

So true. 2 molds that I enjoy throwing only FH are the Resistor & Predator. It's really fun to crank on both of those with an anhyzer.

Yeah, I could FH my Comets & PA4's but it typically doesn't work out too consistently.

You know what, I have been enjoying an eagle on lots of shots backhand and forehand lately.

Sounds like a form issue.
