Disc Golf Drivers That Go to the Right

Updated: Dec 15, 2021

In a recent article (that you can check out HERE), we discussed the differences between overstable and understable discs, and what those differences mean to you as a player.


If you read it, you may have learned that not all discs are created equally.


Overstable discs go left, stable discs stay straight, and understable discs want to go to the right.


You have found this information to be extremely valuable to you, there's just one problem,


All of your discs go left when thrown!


Now this could be due to a variety of reasons. Such as:

  • slow arm speed

  • all of your discs being overstable

  • you're releasing with too much hyzer

or a combination of all 3


So, how do you fix this problem? Well, it depends on what problem it is!


It will be hard to fix a slow arm overnight, and too much hyzer during a throw can certainly effect a disc's flight but is an easy fix with some practice.


But you can't do much about your discs' over-stability anytime soon unless you spend hours intentionally throwing them into trees.


So the easiest solution would be to find discs that want to go to the right when they're thrown!


More specifically, these discs are going to stable and understable discs.


Stable discs when thrown on an anhyzer line will have a tendency to hold that line during the entirety of their flight, although you may still get a little bit of fade at the very end before landing.


Understable discs, however, are going to be the discs you're after if you're looking for discs that go right when thrown (also called "turn").


When thrown flat or with some anhyzer, understable discs will want to immediately come out of the hand bearing right. As a player, it is imperative that you learn to throw an understable disc well and have at least 1-2 options in your bag at all times.


Sure, you could throw an overstable disc forehand and have it go right. But often times, that would cause too much turn and you would miss the fairway all together.


So a more subtle approach, a back hand shot taken with an understable driver, is what the situation will call for.


It's important to note that extremely slow arms may still have difficulty getting even the most understable of discs to go right. If this is the case, just keeping practicing and working on your arm speed/strength.


In the meantime, use forehand shots when you need that disc to go right.


With all that being said, here are some very popular understable driver options that with a little practice will want to go right when thrown.

Best Understable Disc Golf Fairway Drivers

If you are a beginner and truly are looking for a driver that goes to the right, then look no further than understable control/fairway drivers.


These discs have speeds that are slow enough for most players to handle and will turn to the right rather easily with just a small amount of practice when thrown flat or with some anhyzer.


Flight Ratings: 9, 5, -4, 1


An extremely understable fairway driver, the Roadrunner will be one of the best options for beginners to achieve a long, straight flight and more advanced players who need a reliable understable/roller disc.



Flight Ratings: 9, 5, -3, 1


Another understable option from Innova, the Sidewinder is not quite as understable as the Roadrunner, making it perfect for arms that are just a little bit stronger and less likely to turn a disc over completely.



Flight Ratings: 8, 6, -3, 1


Dynamic Discs continues to impress with this excellent understable control driver. The Witness is perfect for both beginners and advanced players alike! The slow speed and high glide will especially benefit beginners trying to get more distance out of their throws.



Flight Ratings: 8, 6, -3, 1


The Diamond is considered by many to be the best control driver for beginners and many players have said it was the first driver that they really threw well.


This makes sense since it has the makings of a beginner friendly disc: mid to low speed, long glide, lots of turn, and minimal fade.


Experienced players may still bag it for turnover shots and hyzer flips, but beginners will absolutely love this driver.



Flight Ratings: 9, 5, -2, 1


When you grow out the Diamond and it becomes too flippy for you, the natural progression would be to move onto the Jade. It's a bit faster with less glide and less turn than its little brother the Diamond.


Stronger arms won't be able to turn this disc over quite as easily but it will still be a true understable disc for the majority of players bagging it.



Flight Ratings: 10, 5, -2, 1.5


The Prodigy H4 V2 is rather fast for a control driver with a speed of 10, but this also makes it an excellent understable disc choice for players gradually making the leap from control drivers to distance drivers.


Along with the speed, the glide, turn, and fade of this disc will allow for long distances from beginners and more technical shots for advanced players.



Flight Ratings: 9, 4, -2, 2


One of my personal favorite discs, the Valkyrie is an extremely versatile disc. It is bit more stable than understable, but as it beats in it will be an excellent understable option for you and will hold many lines very well.



Flight Ratings: 6, 5, -1, 1


In terms of Fairway Drivers and as it's name implies, the Zombee is one of the slowest drivers you will find on the market.


Although it is labeled as a stable fairway driver, I find the Zombee to be an excellent option for long mid-range shots as it will hold any line I put it on.


If you want it to go to the right, simply put some anhyzer on it and watch it hold that line for the majority of it's flight.



Flight Ratings: 9, 6, -3, 1


An EXREMELEY popular disc in the disc world, the Sphinx from Infinite Discs is a great choice for players looking for an option to close the gap between control drivers and distance drivers.


The Sphinx is very easy to throw and allow for both long distance drives and turn over shots alike.



Flight Ratings: 9, 6, -2, 1


A newer disc, the Falk is a great understable option available for all types of players looking for a fairway driver that is capable to go the distance, turn when needed, and S shape flights when suited.


Kastaplast is known for excellent quality and the Falk is no different.


Best Understable Disc Golf Distance Drivers


Distance drivers in general are difficult for beginners to throw due to their high speed ratings, especially when compared to fairway drivers, but here are the most best understable disc options worth checking out!


Keep in mind that speeds over 10 will be most difficult to throw as a beginner, but if you got the arm, any disc listed here will be a great understable option that will "go to the right", especially as the disc gets beat in.


Faster discs that are beat in will also tend to turn more than their ratings indicate. So if you have a disc that just won't go right, even when it's supposed to, don't be afraid to stick with it until it settles into those flight ratings.


Flight Ratings: 10, 5, -3, 1


The Avenger SS was a disc that I immediately found room for in my bag. Even though I was a beginner, it was one of the first distance drivers that I threw incredibly well.


If I throw it flat or with just a little bit of hyzer, it goes a long way after flipping to flat before fading gently. Thrown hard on a flat or anhyzer line and this disc flips nicely before turning and finishing to the right.



Flight Ratings: 12, 5, -3, 1


Designed for beginners and intermediate players but suitable for players of all skills, the Maya is disc you'll definitely want to try if you can get your hands on one.


Like other distance driver options, beginners will absolutely bomb this disc down field, thanks to its nice turn and fade while experienced players will be able to use it for hyzer flips, rollers, and everything in between!



Flight Ratings: 13, 5, -3, 3


This high speed distance driver may take a lot of power to turn over, but if you can, you will absolutely love it! Lower end plastics will beat in much more quickly and become more understable than the Champion and Star plastics. It's worth noting that slower arms will have trouble getting this disc to go right because of the high speed rating.



Flight Ratings: 12, 6, -3, 2


One of the newest offerings from Discraft, the Hades immediately became a very popular understable distance driver option for all types of players.


Players have touted how well they throw the disc with a wide range of arm speeds, from slow to fast, and how well the disc flies despite being a speed 12 distance driver. Do not hesitate to grab one, if you can find it!



Flight Ratings: 12, 6, -2, 2


Slower, and more glide than the Katana, the Tern is a great alternative to those who have slower arms but still want to bag a stable/understable distance driver. It has less turn than other options, but it will be a consistent straight flyer for you.



Flight Ratings: 13, 5, -2, 2


The Captain by Dynamic Discs may be a high speed distance driver but disc golfers love that less experienced players are able to still throw it extremely well.


As your arm strength improves, you should be able to get this disc to turn over on big shots.



Flight Ratings: 12, 5, -3, 2


Very similar to the Innova Katana, the Thrasher is an excellent understable disc option for beginners or experienced players looking for a long range distance driver.


The speed is manageable and the turn of -3 will allow for long drives off the tee box as its very easy to throw!



Flight Ratings: 9, 5, -3, 1


A very popular disc from MVP, the Impulse is a reliable understable driver that will suit a variety of players.


Newer players with slower, weaker arms will enjoy and appreciate the slower speed while stronger arms can turn to the Impulse for roller and turnover shots. Do not overlook the Impulse when shopping for an understable distance driver!



Flight Ratings: 12, 6, -3, 2


Similar to the Tern, the D4 Prodigy is a fan favorite among Prodigy players as they love the understability this long range distance driver offers.


This disc will fly nice and straight for a long way for beginners and stronger arms will love this disc for hyzer flips, rollers, and turn shots.



Flight Ratings: 12, 6, -4, 1


If you like the feel and look of the D4 but just wish it was a tad more "flippy", then look no further than the modified version of the D4, the D4 Max


The "max" part comes into play for beginners in terms of max distance but experienced players will be able to use this disc for rollers and long, straight shots where turn is more desirable for the finish than fade.



And that concludes our list!


We feel that you can definitely find a solid option in any disc from our list but if you feel we left something out, be sure to let us know!


We'd love to hear!
