Review: This disc is great for sidearm drives, and is really good for hammer throws. It seems like the more beat up it gets the better it is for hammer throwing.

I am primarily a right-handed forehand thrower, and I find it difficult to get information regarding disc flight. I have only been playing for a month, but I practice every day in a wide-open field. The DX Banshee is my secondary driver, only because I get slightly less distance than the Valkyrie. I can make it go right, left or straight. It has slightly more tendency to turn over and roll then a Whippet, but much less than many other discs (e.g. a Cheetah or Discraft's Cyclone or Tracer).

I have been playing 4 years of serious disc golf and consider myself a good advanced player, almost ready to make the leap. I am right handed and my farthest drives are 325-350 feet. I use DX Banshees (172-175 grams) exclusively for my forehand (side-arm) shots. I have tried most of the overstable drivers as possible forehand discs and I always come back to the Banshee. It can handle a lot of snap and still not turn over (unless it is really beat up). It holds a very over-stable line during the second half of the flight. I have used it to skip up to the basket on long approach shots a million times and it is a great disc off the tee for doglegs right. I am able to drive a Banshee 300' off the tee. I only use the DX version because it gives me the most grip, which I need to generate a lot of snap/flick (never try to forehand a wet disc). The DX plastic does change it's flight characteristics over time. It will become less stable the longer it is used. The good news is, now you have a great forehand roller disc. I have rolled an experienced Banshee over 400' off the tee. If you play in wooded courses, you will need to learn a forehand roller. My forehand is the strongest part of my game. I would not be able to compete without a Banshee to throw and roll forehand. The closest disc I have found is a DX Firebird, but the turn is not as consistant as the Banshee.
