Mike C wrote:I'm pretty new to FH throws so sorry if this sounds noob, but is there any real limit to how far one can throw a FH with a Wizard? I've heard a lot of people say you need over stable discs to handle the snap of a high powered FH throw but that never made sense to me since more spin stabilizes a disc's flight? So I figured if I learned clean form and threw with a hyzer release, I should be able to throw Wizards full power FH and not flip them. Is this correct?

I was just wondering what the opinions on more experienced FH players were, whether the "increased spin" thing is true or not. The ultimate example is good, and I will watch some ultimate youtube clips and maybe steal some form ideas from the players...
From my modest FH experience I see no reason why I can't flick a wizard as far as I can BH it. I played with a very experienced FH player recently who showed me shoulder down = hyzer release, which is a simple but effective example of what I might be doing wrong. I hadn't thought of positioning my shoulders like that to get a better hyzer release.
I'm not a forehand expert, but from what I've seen that's totally correct.Mike C wrote:So I figured if I learned clean form and threw with a hyzer release, I should be able to throw Wizards full power FH and not flip them. Is this correct?
Whiz wrote:Try a Wraith or Surge. Both discs are similar but I just happen to throw the Wraith. They both have a lot more glide than your Flicks. IMO, the Flick is NOT a very good disc for Forehand, with the possible exception of skip shots and such. I would recommend a Star or Champ Wraith or a Z-Surge. For distance Geoff Bennett throws ESP Forces and Jeremy Koling throws Z-Surges or Nukes. They are two of the top FH throwers so that should give you an idea of what is needed.
