It wasn't until I realized the crutch of the overstable plastic I was carrying that things started to really change.

Look at my signature. I throw all of those discs FH without issue since I started really working on my form. The Flying Squirrel is one of my favorite discs, and I don't think you can really get more understable than that. It'll be frustrating at first for him, but once his form comes around it'll be a blast.
Couldn't agree more. There will always be a place for the Firebird and Crush when I need a hyzer or its windy, but I have too made the switch to FH'ing all sorts of plastic. My current favorite mold is the Eagle-L. It really changes your game because you are in control of the disc instead of the disc controlling you.

Not to beat a dead horse, but I also agree that we cannot properly recommend discs for someone if we do not have any verbal or visual representation of where your friend's shortcomings are. It sounds to me it is the archer and not the arrow and your friends needs to work on his game if he wishes to become more accurate.

Yes he does need to work on his game. I am starting him over with slow stuff and building from there.
driving putter and a mid first... he has neither of those in his bag

Monarch never^^^

Got him out in the field today with my bag today. He flips anything less stable than a wasp over, his shoulders are way out of level and his runup is all out of time.

After I got him to stand still and pretend he was pitching out from behind a tree he could finally get a buzzz to fly straight without the wobble 200'.
Basically he has learned to throw everything on big forced anny because everything in his bag, fbird,max,monster,destroyer, boss is so fast and overstable.

He could throw the zone and drone pretty well. lol

For the time being he is only going to be throwing a Warship (westsides version of a buzzz)

Going to move this discussion to the technique critique now. Thank you.

It's like skipping a rock across water. You put all the spin on the rock at the last second of the release. Sidearm is all about the wrist and fingers. It's called a flick because you "flick" your wrist and fingers to generate all the spin. What I think he is doing is rolling his wrist and forcing his arm to do all the work. I can side arm putters from in side the circle to 300ft if need be, all because of a flick of the wrist. Watch sidearm technique videos from Avery, Nikko, and Sarah Hokom. All great sidearm throwers and great videos to watch. Here is Sarah doing a sidearm clinic.



Just skip to where she shows up and talks about her sidearm. Then skip to the end to where she is correcting people while they are throwing their sidearms.
