Too bad the cryztal memorial nukes aren't regular production, mine has always flown great and felt wonderful to me. Much more stable than the FR Z Nukes I threw.

With the exception of putting, all i am able to throw is FH due to a torn labrum in my throwing shoulder. So I have been forced to learn how to throw a FH properly and ive found SUPER FLAT DISCS work the best for me. Ive launched 400 footers (seriously) with these 3 discs:

172g Elite Z Crush (if you don't snap enough, it will hyzer HARD and quick after release. If you snap enough and quickly, straight and pretty)

172g CE TeeRex (too much snap it will never hyzer, it will go straight for ever and skip like a stone. Great distance driver. If you can get a slight Anhyzer, it will S curve into a BEAUTIFUL drive)

168g Quest AT Inferno (great S curve FH driver for me. And, a very accurate FH upshot or approach shot.)

Proper Form is everything with FH, not just for consistency but also for injury prevention. Ive learned this the hard way.


I have found with dome-ier discs (beast, valk) , i can't get anywhere near the distance or the accuracy so i stick with flat, HARD plastic.

Good luck out there! hit some chains

I've too noticed that how flat or domey the disc is really affects me more when throwing FH. BH it's not really an issue at all, but for FH flat beats domey any day, the feel is just so much nicer.

Mid-high 160'ish Champ Sidewinder for the more open shots where I can get some air. The Star Sidewinder I lost was even better.

For flatter, more controlled shots a Pro-D XL.

usually a worn esp force, but my esp pulse has been giving me more control at the same distance lately (around 350?)

I found, for myself, that if I focus on just releasing flat with a lot of wrist snap at the end of the throw, I could really throw anything forehand. Also by adjusting the hyzer angle, just like a backhand, I could control the flip of a turn over driver when throwing forehand as well. This is a big help when you need to throw a backhand hyzer but don't clearance, but can still get a forehand out.

I throw FH a Star boss 171, star katana 170, icon rampage 174, tournament king 174. The boss is my go to driver because i can throw it great FH and BH. The rampage and king are relatively new to my bag but ive been getting some crazy distance with them.
