Default Euro Roller

So, I have really been wanting to work on backhand rollers lately. I need help on what disc to start off with. I don't really have anything understable enough to use right now(I am proficient in sidearm so I never worried about it too much) I am a Lat/WS/DD fanboy, so I would prefer discs from those comapanies. I was thinking an Underworld or Renegade. For reference I throw about 375-400' fairly consistently with my drivers and that's RHBH

Thoughts/recommendations?

Sorry if there's already a thread on this I didn't wanna spend too long on search

My friend throws thee most amazing backhand rollers with his VIP King.

it might be too much disc for what you're looking for, but i've never seen such amazing and controlled, yet long, BH Rollers.

Other than that, I'd recommend the DD Renegade.

I know people love Kings for rollers, and I plan on getting one. I just feel that I would be better off getting something a little slower just for learning purposes.

Very much an Underworld, though I haven't thrown a King (way too fast for me). Underworld is a truly understable fairway driver that you could consistently and easily turn into a roller.

Might I suggest a 160g Opto Diamond?

This WAS the disc I used for what you're talking about, and really tree laden shots, but I don't use mine anymore (its on the MP!)

You'll eventually want something longer for rollers, but its a nice little US fairway

I use a 170g gold line saint, but its pretty worn in. If you're set on swedish the underworld was a good suggestion

My friend uses a test material bolt for this and it works pretty good for him.

+1 King. At that distance of arm, you'll roll a king no problem.
