Default Upgrading my forearm disc what should I buy?

I have loved the avenger ss for flicking since it was nice to have a understable disc that I could control. After practicing flicking with putters I noticed my flick with the avenger ss had more power and thus It became unpredictable. I tried a lucid maverick which was too understable as well and a lucid getaway which is a bit over stable and doesn’t go very straight for very long. Any suggestions on what to try? I am okay with slick plastics. I want to stay away from innova though, I have not liked their products as much as discraft and dynamic discs. Thank you.

Too bad you don't like Innova, because I was going to suggest the Star Mako3.

So I'll suggest the Buzzz and the Prodigy M4 or M3.

I actually did like the Gstar Mako3 but never flicked it.

Escape fits between a Maverick and Getaway, and feels a lot like a Getaway just with a lower parting line. That may be your goldilocks disc if you want to try another Dynamic mold.

Ti Undertaker
It's a step up from the Avenger SS in stability with a slightly smaller rim.

If you like the Avenger SS, I agree with RocTheCourse than an Avenger would be a logical choice to keep a similar feel, but increase stability. An Undertaker or Vulture would be another good choice. Smaller rim, high speed drivers with stable, but not overstable flights.

I've also heard a lot of praise for the Anax, but haven't thrown one myself. It's supposed to be Discraft's answer to the PD, which is my #1 driver slot.

I mostly throw Innova, but love the DD Emac Truth for laser-straight forehands with just a bit of fade.

I'm not sure how to recommend you a "forehand disc", as I FH and BH all the same discs, utilizing a range of stabilities from a Falk to a Teebird to a Firebird and a range of speeds from a Zone to a Dart to a Wraith. How do you want the disc to fly?
