Responses to Last Week's Question
"How do I get my disc to turn right?  I throw backhanded with my right hand."  DBretz of Columbus, OH

I would suggest getting an under-stable disc like the 

If you have any of the following discs you will want to try them: Xpress, Archangel, Leopard, Panther, Stingray, Stratus, Comet, Eclipse, Wolf.

Next you need to get the disc to generate a lot of RPM's so spin it hard.  This will increase the amount of air flowing over the disc which will make it more under-stable (turn right). 

Finally apply a little anhyzer to the disc, that it lift the left edge of the disc, just lift it a little because the angle of release can go a long way in getting the disc to turn.
