Verdict works for me, when sometimes the Truth gets a little flippy

If I throw my compass correctly I can hit slightly over 200 feet.

You're yanking it over, is my guess.

Turning your wrist most likely. Is the disc starting off tracking left or is it going on the desired line for a bit then turning left?

Definitely not the disc. Not saying that to be mean. I stand by my recommendation that you look for form advice. Fix the big stuff before it becomes a habit that's hard to break.

No, when I throw it flat it goes that far.

There are endless examples of pro players turning over their discs more than they wanted. This does does not necessarily mean they have form issues. Watch video of top players throwing drivers from hole #1 of Maples Hill Golds. It is almost impossible to predict where the discs will end up.

I'm pretty sure Dire Wolfy IS NOT Ricky Wysocki. Or any other pro for that matter. They don't tend to come here for advice.

Not trying to be a dick, but you should just keep throwing what you have. Start practicing with really neutral putters and mids, aviar, compass (not familiar but seems to be pretty neutral), comet, QMS, whatever you have that is supposed to go dead straight. And by practice I mean not playing rounds, just go find an open space somewhere and throw at whatever target is available, a tree, your bag, anything that is repeatable. I'd bet you have a form issue, but I'm no expert on that.

Throwing just a bag full of used aviars has cleaned up my form quite a bit and added to consistency and accuracy. Practice makes perfect, and seems you have a good couple discs to practice with.

I have a practice basket that I use for practicing every now and then, and I don't use backhand much which is why I'm not consistent.
