Looking for something to accurately throw for shots in the 175-225 foot range.
Best I have now is a Champion TeeBird 170g. Tried a Avenger SS 175g but it
let's me down too often. Someone told me to try the Champ. Teebird 11X.
They said it was more stable than my 12X.

I use a z drone. But everyone is different when it comes to which disc works best.
i use a buzzz for this shot. generally only as a last resort upshot or something as i am a bh dominant player. works for me though.
Try a cucamonga ROC, the heavier the better, little forehand snap, straight or turnover, depends on the angle. Works like a charm.
Try a warrior by gateway, its more overstable then a buzz but not as beefy as a drone
what i use is a 175 Champ. Valc. as of right now it is the most accurate disc i think can be thrown, ive been able to consistently get a laser straight line for 200+ feet with VERY little effort and by that i mean i only take two steps close to the top of the pad and its gone, i dont know how long you've been throwing forehand but for me this disc is irreplaceable
That's where I use my Banshee. It may seem an odd choice at first, but it will do exactly what you want it to do. The idea with that is you throw it slightly to the side of the basket (left for RH) and when it slows down it will cut right at the hole leaving it parked or possibly in. Great speed and distance disc. If you want to take it on with a straighter disc then I might go Sidewinder, but be careful of blowing past. Just check the format first to see if it will count. Sorry, I couldn't resist.
I'd say you already have the right disc. I throw a max weight Star or Echo Star Teebird for that shot. The champ or pro firebird feels great when its windy.
i love my star orcs... i keep two of them in my bag both at 175g... i can flick those bad boys straight as an arrow right down the fairway and through most alley shots.. it seems to be my most consistant disc ive used in a very long time and should be pretty accurate right at that 175-225 range as it is for me
A Discraft Wasp might be good for this then.
I like this disc as well.
A Teebird is really a great all around finesse disc for forehand. Scott Stokely says that he uses the same disc for a shot that he'd use backhand if the hole was mirrored. Ultimately, you should be able to throw any disc backhand or forehand. By using something really overstable for forehand, you're just masking improper form and technique (obviously there is a time to throw something overstable on purpose, but not "all" the time). Learn to throw a Comet or Buzzz....Mako or Roc sidearm the same distance and accuracy as your backhand and you'll be a few steps ahead of the rest of the field. Of course this takes practice in a field to get good, but that is another reason that we play this game...to get better, right?
