I've been playing discgolf for a few years now, and having played a ton of baseball in the past, found that throwing a thumber was my best bet. I can consistently thumb a 175 gram Star Firebird 350' for distance and a 175 gram Champion 11x Teebird 335ish with more control.
Lately I've been working on a forehand which I can out distance my thumbers on occasion but not nearly as consistent and predictable. I have heard that if I try a lighter disc on my forehand I will get more distance but much less control with my arm speed.
Being on a budget and not able to purchase more than 1 disc every so often, I was wondering what thumbing a lighter weighted disc would accomplish in comparison to the 175 grams I am used to throwing. Will it increase distance? Lessen accuracy? Tail more? Just thought I'd grab some opinions before making another purchase. Thanks in advance.
