Default Question from a new player

Hey there! Been playing about 8 months. Can get about 350 consistently backhand & am now trying to learn forehand. Someone suggested to buy a teebird and I did. I read tips about not rolling my wrist and proper grip and I went to the field to practice (about 20 forehand throws). I am getting about 210 feet (almost every throw the last 10) and it is going dead straight. Am I doing something wrong? Seems like it should finish right and the distance is not very far.

Thanks !

What plastic teebird? that pretty good for just learning forehand. Does the disc wobble at all? Most people will wobble their forehands like crazy when they start.
