Wow only one person mentioned using a whippet. ppl who thumb around here use the whippet religiously. 50+ further than champ eagle or firebird. The Epic tends to flip over completely and hyzers out. This loses accuracy in the end and takes away from the striaght or left to right shot. Give a whippet a try.
I use a teebird due to a lack of trying anything else. It is extremely accurate and will die right where it lands. Works great for throws around 150-250. I am going to have to try a firebird though and see if that would add a little bit of distance. It would be nice to have something that I could throw 300+.
an aviar X would probably go 300+ with you thumbing it!
but yes... after almost religiously throwing FBs I tried a whippet and I can crush the whippet compared to the FB... if I put too much power into it the FB sometimes flip too soon. I also have good luck with a Monster for 'shorter' touch thumber shots (~200-250)
So I've heard lots of people talk about how much they like Whippet's for thumber shots. I use lots of thumbers in my game. Man, I was very impressed. It got 20-30 feet more distance than my other favorite thumber discs. Very impressive. So now I'm a believer in Whippets for thumber shots. Hope this helps!
