lean back when you roll, then you can roll any disc and adjust to your own power style. "That's just how I roll" yo!

Here's some good info on How-To throw a roller... I've been teaching others, but thought I'd do some research on forehand rollers. I think I know how, just need to practice them. Its been a while since i've practiced in a field...


just watched this for the first time - definitely watch how Greg Hosfeld leans back on his back hand roller!!!

smalls51691, I bought a Monarch towards the beginning of this season and I must say that I was disappointed with it. Mine is a max weight pink Monarch, so I can find it easily :P , and it is nothing like a faster Roadrunner in my opinion.

Mine flies much more like a Beast than anything else. Does not have a great anny like my champ roadrunner does, have to get a large amount of snap on the disc for it to do this. Also, don't get the nose up with one or it will stall left quickly.


For me, I use a sidewinder for rollers, it's really beat in, bought it used at Play it Again.

I highly recommend the DX Valk for rolling.

You should be able to roll anything but the best disc for a roller in theory is a DX Valkyrie.

Enough stability to create the longest roller line, throwing understable discs for rolling flips early, just like when you throw an air shot.

I like this idea of rolling w/ a Valk - must try it w/ my favorite X-out champ V.

So I used to roll w/ domey, blunt nose ESP avenger SS's & roadrunners - but they stand up too fast sometimes... Think the Valk might be the right way to go? Maybe just try the new Avenger SS? It seems to be more flat top, hope it's as understable as the original. What other drivers do some of you use to roll? Anything overstable? More, or less domey for what purposes?

Avenger SS is an amazing roller IMO.

I use a zone for small trick rollers to get out of trouble, so this makes me curious, how far can you roll the zone? and do you roll it backhand? forehand? both?

backhand - SE valk (understable disc)

I throw zones for forehand rollers sometimes, but I can't get huge d....very very consistent line tho for those 200 ft odd angle shots.
