Any of the three discs that come with the InStep basket:

They're made out of the cheapest feeling plastic I've ever felt.

I also personally hate any of the "gimmick" discs, the wheel, (now illegal, for good reason) 10M brick, etc. It reminds me of in regular golf when they have a wedge with ad adjustable loft. No one who is actually good ever uses that stuff, IMO.

I guess I can only call something the worst if I've thrown it. That being said, my vote is split between 2: The Whamo S-Driver and the Aerobie Paintcan Lid, errr, I mean Arrow.

One of our locals has an S-driver that he keeps in his bag for fun. He'll occasionally use it to crap out a horrible anhyzer and we all have a good laugh. As for the Arrow, I've thrown one several times and although they do fly straight, they have ZERO glide and feel very odd in the hand.

Not so sure about most overrated...probably the Destroyer, and really all the other speed 11+ discs. Unless you can already throw 400+, those discs aren't going to help you accomplish anything you couldn't do by improving your form / technique.

i think the DX destroyer for my forehand - its SO MUCH more understable than my Star Destroyer -which is actually lighter and turned over 95% of the time

blame it on user error - but it totally sucked for me

I'll second this one. Especially on windy days.

I hate it when it keeps gliding past the basket too. My opinion is that putters should be heavy with a high stall speed, so if you over shoot, you'll at least get it on the next attempt.

Default Don't hate on the epic...

It, for all intents and purposes, has a place in dg. I think it is a great short thumber/tomahawk disc because it drops like a hammer so you can power it out of the crap and it will still fly some. As for a backhand disc, you folks that say you have thrown it real far have a type of finesse in your throwing style I could only dream of. I was putting this disc on display after getting it and was going to show off the roller with it. I decided to hammer it, put the same force into it as I do a destroyer or max and the crazy thing barrell rolled. No kidding, wing down to the ground and crushed it and it did a full 360. Of course it only managed about 200 feet. Crazy thing though. I don't think I could barrel roll any other disc backhand not even 150 class stuff.

Most overrated disc for me, gotta be the sidewinder. I can't get this disc to do anything twice in a row. I have thrown some of the longest drives of my life with them and then buried the next one into the ground and rolled it forever. It is certainly a user error, I just wish I could throw it consistenly.

Sort of agree with you on that one. when I was starting the sidewinder allowed me to throw "long" S curves. as my technique got better and my power more refined, it was really hard not to make that thing rollover. It sits in my spare bag and the Monarch replaced it as my understable huge S curve/make it snake around a tree disc. Give the Monarch a shot. Although same thing, too much power and you are rolling that down the side of the fairway.

I am being told that the vision by latitude 64 is a sidewinder on steroids. Might want to give that a try as well.
