Fine by me so long as they don't confuse it with the original thumber.

Matt Dollar, a thumber master, suggested to me a Moonshine Spark. Spark is the disc and Moonshine is latitude 64's glow plastic. It has a really nice slow turn so it goes really far before bombing to the ground. I only throw a thumber every now and then but I can get around 275ish, maybe more. Great disc and fantastic plastic.

Anything with a big dome is going to drop out of the air when it flips upside down.

When I used to throw thumbers off the tee, which I don't anymore, I always had the best distance and accuracy with a champ banshee.

Is this the consensus? I've been doing thumbers with a predator that's domey and I'm getting exctly what you describe and was wondering why I wasn't getting to much distance. I just thought I sucked lol. Guess I'll try a flatter driver next time thanks.

I used to use Eagles, but now I use PD's and a Vibram Arch. (very similar to an Eagle, but with a softer landing)

The discs are not here yet.
It is now too cold to throw the CE fx. I broke 3 early this year. I am now thumberless.

I doesn't matter how that disc leaves your hand, we good. I personally love FH rollers on wooded courses. If I throw it's almost guaranteed I'm playing pinball. Put down a nice roller, I've got a chance.
