I agree with the OS/S part, mostly; if we're talking RHBH, that make sense if the entire flight is L to R, but if it starts L to R and there's a hard left finish, I'll work an anny flex shot (or try to) with an OS/S disc. Might end up being a thing of beauty!
What in the hell are you talking about?

Yes, I may use a nuke for a freaking cut roller that will go a net 25'. You are missing the point.

I throw a lot more forehand shots than backhand turnovers/annys. I still bag & enjoy using understable discs. My most used understable disc is my flippy mid. It's great for standstill shots I want to finish straight & hyzer flips in the woods. I like throwing understable discs lightly with lots of hyzer. They finish left (RHBH) but have "forward fade". I can throw farther backhand than sidearm. So on very long shots that need to finish right, I need my flippy Destroyer. I feel much more consistent throwing with hyzer than flat (especially on straight shots). So I like hyzer flipping flippy discs. One of my favorite shots in disc golf is throwing my beat Champion Teebird on a hyzer. It flips up to flat & stays laser straight throughout its entire flight, with little to no fade at the end. Plus when there is OB/water on the right I prefer the backhand anny/turnover. If I throw a sidearm in that situation there's the chance that I the disc skips too much & I go OB. I still use stable/overstable discs for a majority of my sidearm shots. I'm working on being able to flick understable discs consistently. I know once I get it down it will help out my game a lot.

I'm interested to see how you guys use them.
The following move in and out of my bag depending on the course and wind (always in have an *):
Blowfly II*
Z Comet*
N Inspire (light)
Star Leopard (heavy)
N Amp
StarLite RR (light)
Star RR (heavy)
Star Dart and Polecat are honorable mentions--neutral, but hold an anny line.

-The Comet, Inspire, and Roadrunners for BH hyzerflips. (FH, too, but I also can flip the Amp and Leopard, as well as Valkyries FH.)
-Generally they all help my noodle arm with distance.
-The Amp, Blowfly II, and Leopard for straight shots that are too far for the Polecat, Mako, Axis, or Star Dart.
-For shots like others mentioned that need to go right, but don't work well for FH. An example of this is hole I played a couple of weeks ago. Black Butte DGC's Hole 1 (Shingletown, CA) is about 200' and around to the right. I flicked a Resistor, trying to hyzer it a bit because of the shorter distance. It went straight too far, but fortunately I was rescued by some tree branches that knocked it down into the fairway, though outside of my putting range. So I tried the Star Dart on an anhyzer and landed about 15' from the basket.

I used to think that FH and Anhyzer were relatively interchangable, but have learned better.
-Get out of trouble shots where I am too close to a barrier to flick, but can sweep up and over on an anhyzer. The Comet and Blowfly II are the main discs for these.
-I am learning rollers, and the Comet works well for some middle range rollers on hard pack. RR's are good for rollers, too, but I have not learned that very well yet.

Because understable discs fade farther.
