Question Why can't I throw these two discs??

Valkyrie and Latitude 64 River.

I cannot throw either of them backhand to save my life.

They both immediately hook hard left no matter what I do.

They aren't advanced overstable discs and yet I cannot throw them.

I bought them and want to play with them but I throw them once and cuss a storm and shove them back in my bag.

I've been playing 2-3 times a week for 5 months and played a good handful of times several years ago. Main driver for RHBH is Innova Sidewinder that I throw like a champ (usually haha).

Help?

Which plastics are they in and what's the weight? The mold itself is only one part of the stability equation.

I figured form may not be the issue since he says he throws the Sidewinder well.

I have a champ Valk that’s an overstable beefcake. Every other Valk I’ve thrown ranges from straight to flippy.

Champ Valks are useless to me for that reason. I have a Champ dyed Valk that's been sitting on my shelf for a few years. It looks cool though

I mean if I didn’t already lean on the Thunderbird for forehands and overstable shots I would have a use for it. So far at my (lack of) arm speed and (poor) form the sweet spot is a beat Pro/fresh DX
