Default forehand recommendations for friend

Looking for forehand recommendations for a friend. He and I throw very different so it's hard for me to help him. He only throws forehand and maxs out around 275'.
I was thinking of starting him with a z zone and z buzz or wasp and seeing how things go from there.
Help me design a <275' forehand bag please.

If I'm correct a Z Buzz would be a good way to go. I throw RHFH and it did help me out, but the main thing is practice. Find a field and bring a cooler and throw and work on your form. After a while he'll get better.

Is he looking to seriously improve or just have fun (to torque or not to torque, that is the question)?

He is looking to improve. It's hard for me to teach him how to improve when for example he doesn't have a disc that holds anny at midrange distances. I guess I should say I am trying to redesign his bag. His bag has many holes. Currently he has like 6 different overstable drivers and they all seem to fly the same...(like hes throwing too much disc)

I need a forehand chucker to give me an example of a decent bag setup that works.

Well I throw mainly FH but do throw a lot of BH. I throw every mold in my sig FH. But if I had to pick 3 discs it would be a champ eagle around 165ish g, max weight Z buzzz, and I would go with something a little slower but still over stable for a putter. I like challengers but from what I'm told the wizard is a lot like a challenger.

I've thrown FH (only) for most of my discing time. I made the transition from only overstable to a more comprehensive lineup and couldn't be happier. If he wants to improve, moving towards the neutral (even into the understable) end of the spectrum is the next step. 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.

Pro Destroyer. Best comfort for FH shots. It is also understable enough and has great glide. But then midrange Z buzz will be great. Hornet is also great but it all depends if he throws with OAT, wrist roll, or the disc like \ or /

This! The thing you want to do with someone who is serious about improving is give them discs that, in their respective classes, are fast enough to make any form flaws you throw at them. Throw in a Boss and a Nuke OS, and he's ready for anything!
