A long turnover disc?

Postby floppydisc » Mon May 05, 2008 8:10 pm

Hi! :)
I would be happy to hear any suggestions on this bag, I have played for about one year and reach 330' on a good throw with the Orc.

174g Z Pred, wind, left fade
175g Ch Orc (beat), distance
175g Ch/Star Teebird, accuracy

178 Z Buzz (beat), anything!
177 Z Wasp, straight shots and holding angles

S/M Wizard, putt and approach

I lost my turnover driver last week, an ESP Avenger SS. The sad thing is I didn't even throw it away, I just forgot it in the grass on the last hole...

What would you say my bag needs? :) Are any of theese a good choice, or something else?

Ch Leopard,
Ch Sidewinder
or ESP Avenger SS (again)

If you want a good turnover disc I would recommend the sidewinder. As Blake pointed out a while ago for me, they don't make that good of a roller, but they do perform turnover shots very well. I never had any luck with my Avenger SS, but my Sidewinder is just money.

See if you can find a nice beat 2x Champ Beast. You can probably get it for cheap and it will stay consistent on you (how much more beat can it get?) Those discs when thrown with a slight hyzer angle will flip flat and slowly turn right with very little fade at the end. Give it a bit more hyzer and they'll fly straight as an arrow and then drop with minimal fade.

I have a beat Champ Valk with will hold an anhyzer line like you wouldn't believe. Plus during the tournament , I was actually using my SOLS with some anhyzer for some awesome right turning shots.

Pro Starfire is a great choice. Possibly a Champ Leopard. I am using the Champ Leopard until I work in my Avengers.

The Avenger SS is a great long turnover disc, as well as the sidewinder, roadrunner or leopard. A light Champ (I used a 166 JK Pro) Valk is a great disc for this, as well.

I usually throw a max weight Sidewinder, but have recently tried a 164g Champ Wraith and I'm loving the extra distance and consistency I get out of it, especially throwing it hyzer-flip.

Ditto, I'd say the Avenger SS is my favorite.

I vote for the DX Valkyrie. Compared to premium plastic, a beat-in DX disc will be less prone to fade back very much so IMO performs better as a turnover driver.

Soft plastics hold turnovers long. So do lighter weights. With that said my Z Avenger 164 is a great long turnover driver that is east to keep turned over the entire way even on higher lines depending on the nose angle. Yet not impossible to throw to 380' on distance lines (hyzer flip medium high apex) although a bit picky and not liking head winds at all. The longest turned all the way to the ground throw was 370' in a 2' downhill with a bit of rear wind. 40' of L>R movement.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.
