Default DX Plastic Drivers Dump to the right

I throw RHBH and I have several innova discs in DX Plastic. I used to throw them when I first began playing in June of 2020. When I now throw the Valkarye, Beast, and even the Destroyer, they dump to the right. Why? I was told I'm spinning the disc too much but that seems unlikely if pros throw DX.

It's not the plastic it's the speed of the disc you're throwing that's causing that problem, imo. Your form has not developed yet, it seems. Try lower speed discs like the Roc, Shark, and Aviar, compare those flights to the discs you mentioned.

Wait...dumps to the right? That's flipping your wrist, I misread it the first time.

Default Ok, why

Thanks, and I do have to improve form. I do throw lower speed discs like mids and fairway driver but all in champion plastic. I only have the dumping to the right throwing DX drivers. I don't experience the same issue with Champion plastic drivers.

Champion plastic makes all discs more over stable. IMO DX plastic, when new, is the truest to the flight numbers. So sounds like your form has been stalled because Champion plastic has worked for you and covered your bad form, where DX won't do that.

Now I suggest putting the Champ plastic away, slow down, smooth out your throw and stick to the DX until they start flying right for you.

That is unless the DX discs are all beat up, then that's why they're "dumping to the right". Start out with new DX discs.

I thought that was the problem we were trying to solve.

It could be form issues, or if you are beating them up a lot it could give them that flight. If every disc is kind of doing the same problematic thing, probably form.

Also, for anything faster than a midrange no pro that I’ve ever seen throws DX.
