Default Understable Forehand Midrange

So I've been looking for a an understable midrange to work on forehand hyzerflips with. Ideally it would be flat topped,beadless and lower speed. Comfortable to grip and easy to get clean releases with. Does a disc that meets all these criteria even exist?

I've tried a 400g M4 and it feels great but it is way more stable than I anticipated. More of a neutral disc then understable for me. Thrown on a hyzer it will actually hold the hyzer. It will fight out of anhyzer angles and is fairly torque resistant.

I was contemplating a prodiscus stari but it is super hard to find any information on them. Infinite has them listed as 5/4/-2/1, marshal street has it rated at 4/4/-2/0 and prodiscus has it listed as 6/4/-1/1. Which leads me to believe that this is a more neutral higher speed mid similar to the m4. Does anyone here have experience with this disc?

How about an Axiom Proxy or Theory? Those are flat topped and understable. I haven't thrown those discs but I do like worn in Atoms for a slower understable disc and they are quite similar... Gotta say tho, isn't a hyzerflip forehand with those style of discs basically a BH approach shot with a putter? Can't say a I would spend much time perfecting that shot but I guess it could have its uses.

A Latitude 64 Fuse, Discraft Meteor or an X-line Buzzz after a little bit of use would work.

I do these shots quite a bit and I use a beat up Roc or Comet. The beads don't bother me anymore, I just got used to it.

Just like being good for cleaning up back hand form, nothing will clean up your forehand form faster than a Comet.

It’s possibly a bit faster than you would want, but the Atomic Piwakawaka would fit this bill pretty well.

Agreed

I don't carry an extra disc for these type of shots - I just use what I normally would for a backhand. I'm using a comet for a forehand hyzer flip or turnover shot.

Go to an Ace Race if you can, those disc are neutral/understable with a low profile, I've been using mine in the backyard for hyzerflip forehands, throwing them back and forth, they really tell me what's going on with my wrist and release angle.

Are you wanting to throw over 80% power? Or pretty controlled and slower?

I love a Z Buzzz for forehands, one in particular is great for forehand anny shots that have become a definite strength in my approach and scramble game. I'm not sure it's really a hyzer flip disc like you're looking for, but I'll do frequent 200' FH hyzer to straight shots that are great for tunnels. Some Z Buzzzes might be a little more HSS, so I'd second giving an X a try if you want. But the Buzzz fits the bill as far as comfort, bead situation, and being close enough to flat.

Some have mentioned Comet, but Comets don't like forehands if thrown more than 50% power or so. Nevertheless, they're great for annys that need some more air under them than the ones I use the Buzzz for.

A Z Meteor would be a decent option, better than Comet, if you want to be able to put some juice on it. But it will turn easy if there's any OAT.

You might also consider an Opto Pure...

Many options. Again, what kinda throws are you trying to make?
