I think there needs to be some clarification around a forced flex shot vs a hyzer flip that turns and comes back. One requires an OS disc (forced flex) and one requires and neutral/slightly US disc (hyzer flip that turns).

Both are useful, but thrown very differently.

It really depends on how hard you throw them as well. If I have a Roc any Anhyzer FH and it probably won’t fade.

really?? it won't fade?????

man, we must be throwing different rocs and comets. i never have a problem throwing nose up, stall FH flex shots with them.

the mix of a larger bead with a sloped top of the wing sounds like a personal, mental block that you've created in your mind that gives bias to the actual usefulness of the molds to perform the shot.

Moose throws really far.

I have no mental block, it’s a suboptimal tool for my personal needs and preference.

I do not throw either of these molds because though they are popular they have flaws and the way I throw makes those flaws show up more.

Bard, Matrix and even the very flippy Piwakawaka are better FH Discs to me because of the rim shape.

If I want to throw an a hyzer shot that goes over 300 and still fade I’m not reaching for a Roc.

I’ve been looking for a new driver to throw for forehand flexes. I’m wanting to be able to throw the widest flex curve possible. I was looking at a lightweight Firebird but I wanted to ask you guys if that’s the right disc for the job? Anyone have any better ideas?

I think Eagles are really good for those types of shots. Very predictable and easy to be smooth with.

I can forehand Rocs and Comets too, but I will never reach for one in a round if I'm throwing more than 230ft. Yeah, they're are people who can master them, but I have other fish to fry in the shot mastering area.

As a side note, everyones grip and or hands are a little different, some discs are just harder to control. For the life of me, no matter how much I try, I just cant forehand bullet nose, V-tech or any other convex rimmed discs. They don't sit consistent on my ring finger and I have a hard time controlling the nose angle. I stopped bagging Wizards because I can't FH them worth a damn.
