I'm here in hopes of finding the right discs for me. I can put a 175 Ultrastar anywhere I want up to 300ish ft. LHBH or LHFH, but these golf discs don't fly the way I expect them to. I've tried stables,overs, and unders and they all fly about the same for me; that's to say hooking to the right in the end no matter how much left cut I put on the throw. Are there any drivers/mid-range that don't do this?
Then the exact opposite question: I sometimes find myself wanting to throw what we Ultimate folks call an inside-out where the release point has the disc angled towards the ground and flies in a consistent and smooth bank (if I'm throwing LHBH it banks out right). Every time I've tried throwing a golf disc this way it goes about 20 yards and nosedives to the ground. Are there any discs designed to be thrown with that kind of release?
I'd be grateful for any input into what type of discs I might want to try. Thanks.

I learned to play in Denver a few summers ago and if you ever played in any of the Eagle Rock tournaments, I dug tees, holes for the pins, and printed and mounted the maps.
I'm since moved to Alaska, where I learned that an awesome place for disc golf is a national level cross country ski course. It has broad fairways with many trees to curve around in both directions. It rewards good shots, but isn't frustrating to newbies. Lots of gentle slopes and curves in the same hole, as well as an obvious path to follow between holes.
I throw my Beast and Shark LHFH
And my Aviar P&A and Shark LHBH or RHBH as needed
Call it Ambisinister.
