Talking Forearm midrange/fairway disc?

I'm looking for a forearm midrange disc <250 ft. Most of the midranges I find have large lips which make it hard for me to flick. I just recently started up disc'n again since I finally completed graduate school, but played pretty much all my teens with my older bothers/friends. I use to use the X-clone for EVERYTHING; even the PDGA terminator worked well for me. With those gone I have starting to put a bag together.

If you're looking for something slow and overstable but with a driver type rim, try the banshee, whippet or viper.

Trident! Oh so glorious.

I really, REALLY hate when people do this. But from what you're describing, I say:

"Trident. /thread."

I just use a teebird, even for closer forehands. I can rely on it to fly straight and then fade out

Thanks for starting this thread, i was about to do the same.

I've been having problems with my FH mid shots lately too.

My Fuse feels comfortable.

My Zone feels good.

My Pain is ok.

I used to rock a Buzzz SS, it felt pretty good.

But all my other mid don't feel right when I FH them.

BH is no problem though.

**Not trying to threadjack**

But can anyone recommend a straight mid that feels comfortable to them when thrown FH?


Thanks!

I really like my Z Buzzz for FH duties. Its flat and easy to grip, and works very well.

Eagles for 150'-250'
Champ Panthers for <150' or for uber-tight lanes
I am 90% BH, so my FH game is weak, but I have very good success with these two discs.

Also, my buddy slays FH with his Drone.
