Without a right hand forehand shot (or a lefty backhand) you have no choice but to learn to throw a right hand backhand anhyzer shot (turnover) if you want the disc to go to turn to the right. As others have said, there are many disc golfers (including some top pros) who basically never throw forehand shots. Instead, they stick to their strengths and are able to manipulate the disc on many different lines. Having a right hand backhand and an left hand forehand does not really give you any advantage at all (other than the occasional weird stance that might favor one shot over the other). Both of those shots will naturally want to fade to the left at the end of the flight. An anyhyzer shot thrown right hand backhand will travel to the right in a broad slow turn to the right throughout its flight. Like a C shape. An anyhyzer shot that turns to the right when thrown right hand backhand will be most easily accomplished with your Leopard when you are first learning to throw it.

Last question...my Leopard is 167g DX and I've decided to go with the GStar Teebird.

Should I go with a 164g, 168g, or 170g in the Teebird?

Again, thanks to all who took time out of your day to respond to my numerous post. I'll put in my order tonight and will hopefully be on the course (or at least in a field somewhere) trying to get a consistent throw down!

Whichever has the coolest color. Seriously it won't make much difference to you. Lighter might carry a couple feet further for you but the difference is negligible.

You have received more theoretical info than most could process in a month. Go throw. It won't count until you experience it.

168g Teebird. Lighter is fine too but won't hold up in the wind as well especially if you only have one to start out with for all around use. I like my Teebirds 165-170 for my middle aged guy arm.

A couple grams won't really make a difference; some discs even weigh differently from their stated weight. Personally I find 168g to be right around the sweet spot for versatility: enough to hold up in some wind, but light enough to manipulate.

If possible, get a solid color you can find easily on the ground outdoors, like pink, blue, light purple, etc. With the fall season upon us, try to avoid colors that can blend in with fallen leaves. Most tie-dyed/patterned discs may as well be camouflaged.

It looks as though in the Gstar Teebird my options are (at least where I'm buying):

164g: Medium Blue
168g: Light Green
170g: Medium Blue, Purple

I would pick one of the blue ones unless you're playing in the desert. Finding green in the trees is lame

Agreed!

Now it's just a matter of 164g or 170g

Toss a coin. One will work today, the other will work tomorrow.
