Default Overstable FH approach

Im a big fan of the FH approach shot and have leaned on it since Ive started playing. However I havent round the disc that really does it for me.
Currently Im using the zone. Heres what Im disliking thus far. I carry 2 zones: 1 beat jawbreaker for annys and shorter touch up shots and 1 Z for hyzer, flat or shots where I need to put more power into it.
However recently Ive gotten into touch hyzer flips with my jawbreaker and Im noticing that its flexing a bit in my release and the nose angle is not coming out right.

Any suggestions on a disc and plastic that I can cycle but is firm and will beat up allowing hyzer flip, touch shots and anny up shots?

Whatever your main putter is, in base plastic

If you really lean on your FH approach, you should be able to hyzer flip your beat putters on softer shots. If that's not going to work for you, then you could just rotate in D zones. There's not going to be much options that aren't an entirely different strategy

You could go with a fresh Zone or Harp those are probably best in class. Stego is also great but you will never get it to flip.

What do you mean entirely different strategy?

A Rhyno would be a good option for the flip up shots. They also come in a big selection of plastic options.

ie getting a different disc that has better cycling plastics and starting from scratch. Like BT hard harp, or PL breaker

Used one earlier in my disc golf adventure. Ill have to dig it out. I remember liking the lack of glide.

Thats fine with me, going to a different mold and better cycling plastics would be welcomed. KC Pro Aviar3? Innova pro plastic? Never held a disc in BT Plastic, thoughts? And Prodigy? Ill check out the Breaker, not too familiar with DGA

I use the AviarX3 / Aviar3 combo for approaches, but in premium plastic. Both work well for FH and BH. My Aviar3 is pretty well seasoned and flips up on forehands. I will also forehand my P2 to run the basket or get out of trouble.

How many touch hyzer flip approach shots are you so doing per round? On average has to be less than 2. Yeah you could get a new disc to fill this shot but I think getting a new disc for a shot that's not used isn't helpful. Instead of leaning on fh approaches how about get a better back hand approach shot?

I use the harp over the zone because of BT hard plastic. I’ve had the same one going for years and it is still very overstable.
