Consider a light Firebird too, as an overstable utility disc it does forehand, thumbers and can be used backhand. It was one disc I should have tried sooner but I was too busy with new technology to check out a proven classic mold.
My Neutron Servo is just an indomitable force for me FH. Man is it easy to throw laser straight and it's a really narrow rim too which weirdly feel awkward to me usually. I can actually shape lines with the Servo, like you would with a Teebird. My stable N Volt is also pretty good but I like it for "must fade" shots and flex lines.

I ordered a Servo I wish I could remember from who, they shrink wrapped it as a single disc and warped the **** out of it, but they made good and replaced it with a wave. I keep thinking I should use it as a trick thumber disc. I would probably replace it if I tripped over one but the Photon fission has really filled the bill.

Oh really? So you have a warped Servo still? Ever tried heating it back to shape?

My best sidearm disc is an optimizer. It is a perfect distance disc or accurate flex line disc, they are perfectly overstable.

i perfer a neutron tesla for my side arm disc. 270-280 feet straight to fade. if i need less distance and more fade i use a fireball. fireball just goes straight and when it loses speed just kinda dumps outta the air.

for upshots, it's either a theory or envy.

theory on an anny for getting it to go left and. o fade. envy is a laser beam straight gap hitter, with a small fade.

My favorite that I reach for mostly is either a Felon or a FD3. If driving and want big D I throw a Sheriff, Enforcer if I want a huge skip/spike/wind-fighter.

As many have said, you really need to learn to throw sidearm with understable discs to get form right. Interestingly, I just watched Nate talk about this in his recent clinic. Practice with understable, then use stable when it counts and you will be even more consistent.

try getting something like Colt Putter, a shallow more neutral putter to do the job, will help you learn the Shot if you are having trouble. I can't do the shot with any fast disc really so no I do not do one but I found with my Jawbreaker Magnet I can do a Forehand flick putt, as well as my Lighting Upshot #2 in Prostyle plastic. I can use my Star Shark for a forhand shot so that is what I would use. My dad has a Wasp or two he uses for that shot best a forehand thogh he can use every disc this way with a forehand flick as he can not throw a toy/freestyle disc or a Ultimate disc backhand. Another disc I would look for is a Wham-O Fastback or like disc a disc golf company makes 130 grams or higher in weight. This will also teach how to do a proper forehand shot for driving, maybe more so as the disc is more finicky then a putter. 130 gams or more is so you can drive the disc with more power. Hero a Innova company has a few discs like a Fastback but the Innova version so you can learn such a shot well, buy them on Amazon or other All disc sports selling online site if you can't find the discs in the store. SuperHero and SuperStar are these discs though stay away from the SuperSonic too light as 115 grams to work for the driving.

My go to are the Vibram Lace and O-Lace for distance. Lat64 River for straight. Lat64 XXX and Trident for curves. And Discraft Buzzz for mid.

So I've recently learned to sidearm my pure for "sticky" situations. Also I put my Archer back in the bag as a get out of trouble disc, it's only 169 and it's pretty beat up. I've also been working on throwing it forehand on a hyzer angle and I'm beginning to get a dead straight "lazerbeam" type shot with it. I haven't thrown anything like this in an actual match yet but I'm going to keep working on it Im sure it'll come in handy eventually.
