Hey everyone, is there a disc that will fade left when thrown side arm?

The short answer is no. It is possible to have something slightly flippy thrown with hyzer having it flip late in its flight, resulting in a 'fade' going left RHFH.

One disc you could consider for that shot is the TL. It is pretty much straight and with a bit of anheiser you could get it to go left. The problem is that the typical understable discs that you'd throw backhanded to make the disc go right aren't great side arm discs. I love my Road Runner for backhanders but i cant get it to perform for me with the sidearm.

Ah there isn't anything that really just goes left.
So far, if I have found myself needing to go left, I throw my Pro Starfire with an anhyzer. It will curve far enough left for me before it begins to flatten out and fade back to the right very late in its path.

a very beat up disc that was once stable is the best bet for the culprit.

one beat enough to where it no longer fades, but ideally was (over)stable enough when new to not be too flippy when that beat.

for this throw i am currently using a star beast with a little anny on it. comes back a little at the end but has worked very well for me for that exact shot. I only throw sidearm and have tried many discs. Hated the new beast until i found it could take care of this shot for me.

One word, Firebird. Blake was dead on, and at least for me if I wanted something to fade left for sidearm throws I would get a 172-175 DX Firebird and use it till it fills the roll I need.

Ive been working a dx firebird for a while and its still not flippy. Ive been using it since december when I lost my Z pred (which is being replaced right now :D )
Im against intentionally beating a disc in. Flexing the rim is alright though. I would like to see how this one beats in (still, ive been waiting).

However, I say learn a backhand, 199/200 throws that a sidearm hyzer flip could be used would be easier to execute backhand.
