Guys,
Thanks for all the feedback and opinions!

Ah, that makes sense, thanks for the clarification.

I am backhand dominant, but throw flicks for approaches and utility. Unfortunately, the slope to the left side of the basket is steep enough that any skip would result in a bad roll away (at best). Worst case scenario is a roll all the way into the drink at the bottom of the hill...

I don't think a Buzz is stable enough for this application. I have not tried a Buzz OS, but I have also tried a Drone, with infrequent success.

It skips less than the Recon but more than a Pig. I prefer to flick beadless discs so I like my setup.
I hadn't considered a Pig... I bagged one when they first came out but didn't really find a spot for it back then. My game has changed considerably since then, so it may be worth re-visiting. Thanks for the suggestion.

The Justice could probably go but it is fun to throw.
I bag a Lucid Judge for throwing and short FH approaches (<75'). I actually pulled a Justice out of the lake when I was fishing for the Felon I threw in there... Seems like it would have limited applications, but I haven't thrown it yet. Seems like the Harp is a good option for this specific application. I'll just have to try it out. I don't want to bag a disc for one throw on one hole, so we'll see if I can use it elsewhere as well.

Thanks again for all the feedback

I think if I was forced to pick one between the Justice/Harp/Suspect lineup it would definitely be the Harp. Awesome disc that changed my upshot game.

Has anyone said Hornet? I bet I've seen more forehand field aces with Hornets than any other disc.

I just started incorporating FH approaches into my game this year. I've had an increase in fairway hole outs because of it. All with an Envy. I tried more OS stuff, but they all required too much flex for a lot of my shots.

I use Harps, and to great effect. They are amazing BH or FH and can cover a lot of lines. I have a BT Soft from the first run that never has left my bag, and is still more OS than my VIP or TP. They are just fantastic. Bought one on a whim and some it was so good for flicks under 250 I could never quit it.

The BT Soft and medium are the best, but the VIP isn't bad, just straighter and the Tp has good glide, so I like it off the tee.

How about a classic slammer? Beat it in over time and it wouldn't be quite so OS.

That's a great suggestion. Only threw one a few times, but extremely HSS without a big fade to match. Felt as HSS as a Harp/Zone, but I didn't get to throw it into any winds to fully test that.

Envy or beat up Pro-d Zone. I use these interchangeably for this shot as my primary approach (I throw mostly backhand except for approach where mostly forehand) up to about 200. Then i step up to a mid or fairway.

Thanks again for all the suggestions.

I actually found a Lucid Slammer on the course the other day (no one ever returned my calls) & I picked up a couple Harps from the Marketplace in Medium & TP, so we'll see what I can do with those.

I'm also playing a couple tourneys in the coming weeks and get a disc with entry, so I'll probably pick up a Gator, Mortar, or Pig.

Keep an eye on the Marketplace for the ones that don't make the cut.
