I threw a Wraith like 475 today at like 70%, does make one think a bit. But if I throw less stable hard they start to get squirrely.

My friend that introduced me to the sport almost never throws flicks, so it was a couple of months before I even knew that was an option. I don't even remember why I was doing it (may have been after watching that Eagle clip where he throws a forehand 450' while straddling a guardrail), but at some point I teed off forehand and actually released it properly. The disc went twice as far as I had probably thrown it to that point. After that I figured I should probably figure out how to get that release consistently.

I'm still working on my backhand, but as of right now, I drive 90% forehand, and my upshots are probably 30% forehand. Still working on getting the wobble out of putters and mids when I power them down.

It's funny. I can flick putters and mids in the woods better than our forehand dominant players( they are using Firebirds and Destroyers smh) but put me on a tee box and it's like I have never thrown a disc before in my life.

I do see players going way too fast on a lot of holes FH. There is one where I usually throw an A2 and tons of. Guys will be like, “destroyer is perfect for this hole!”

If I’m throwing FH off the tee, it’ll be a distance driver! Where I’d throw a backhand turnover with an Envy… if that shot is obstructed, it’s FH with a Surge or at least an FD3/Getaway.

Backhand: MVP fission wave. Only disc I've put over 400' although usually average 360-375ish

Forehand: Axiom plasma mayhem.

Have you tried any OS mids? Deflector/Pyro/Justice/Avil type thing?
