**I am not a great sidearm player** However for me If I need a shot like that I would use a Stalker, Teebird like disc. For high speed I would think a Archon or SL maybe. If You don't mind leaving Innova then I would suggest a Discraft Surge, Prodigy D4, or Latitude 64 Havoc. For the most part I only use forehands for hard right hand turns (RHFH) and use backhand for everything else. 

If you don't mind leaving innovo might I suggest a discraft nuke, discraft avenger, or halo (forget who makes them)

I've been using a Trespass for those shots...it will hold an anhyzer and has plenty of glide.  I recently discovered the cannon.  VERY nice sidearm disc for distance.  How hard do you throw?

If you want a disc with a ton of glide I would suggest a Latitude 64 Saint. That said most sidearm players that I play with don't like the Saint because it has a lot of glide.  They tend to throw overstable discs with very little glide.  Players like my self who throw mostly backhand and only use sidearm when there is not a back hand line may appreciate the Saint because of the glide.  My suggestion is try a verrity of discs and find what works for you.
