Easy rollers without a lot of power and finish right=Avenger SS
Power rollers in which you come over the top=Anything stable to overstable=Nuke OS/Force/Pred

Forehand power rollers that finish right=Nuke OS
Forehand rollers that go straight to left=Avenger

I've used a flat champ Road Runner for several years. Not sure why it works, maybe the narrow rim; someone commented that the weight being distributed closer to the outside helps stability. I like the fact that I can crank on it, landing at about a 45 degree angle, and it goes straight as it stands up. Then doesn't finish too far right usually.

RR and 10x Teebird are frequent discs I see guys rolling too.

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?


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.


FH only for me, perhaps too stable to throw easily BH. I've got geezer arm speed so distance isn't great, but they do go farther, more easily, than any of the more sharp-edged discs I'd used up until the Zone. I throw these with a somewhat weaker grip than when I'm throwing a more standard driver FH so as to not overpower the thing.

I find the trick to successful rollers (any disc) is finding the balance between disc speed and rotation. The naturally slower nature of the Zone helps solving that equation easier.

Time to roll is quickly coming to an end, they don't work well in snow. Sad.

I've had good luck with the Nuke SS as a turnover roller for both forehand and backhand. Usually use them for max distance sky rollers. For anything more controlled it is typically a Sidewinder or Roadrunner.

I'd certainly agree for something you want to hold a line more and not turn over on the ground as quickly you would want like a Force or Pred, something in that neighborhood. Ryan Nicely always threw the Pred for good hooking rollers, was always kind of jealous of that.

center fugal = more weight in the middle / gyroscopic = more weight at the rim sidewinder is my D rllr stratus or buzzz for the others. TL or XL are great, don't really throw ovrstbl rllr's.
