I bought a D Cyclone as my first disc. I played a round with it and came in second among the five of us (we were almost all noobs). So I didn't feel too bad about it.
But it kept coming out of my hand early, resulting in some really bad shots. I was also hoping to get a disc that didn't fade as much at the end of flight.
So I was reading like crazy a lot of info on this site (thanks Blake!) and saw that the Cobra was recommended. I was intrigued that it was supposed to fly right, then fade left, and it was also rated highly by some reviewers... so I bought one.
I'm happy I got it, but I'm having trouble getting it to turn right at high speed. Of 20 or more throws, it's only done the S-curve twice.
It's flying so straight for me that I used it as my driver during the last game. I came in second again.
I'm wondering if I'm hyzering it just a little, which is negating the right turn at speed and causing it to go straight? If that's the case, then I need to work on my BH to get it more flat.
The X-step is feeling more natural to me, and a more experienced golfer who tagged along with us last time complemented me on my technique. So I think I'm coming along, but I know I have a lot to learn.
