If your sidewinder is all over the place, is your form changing for each shot? Sometimes its the archer, not the arrow. But if you want to move towards the stable end, I would suggest trying Valkrie or Viking, or even try to focus on speed 6-7 discs to dominate control and accuracy with a Leopard, Cheetah, TL, Teebird in that sort of family.
And before anyone starts to doubt my comments and opinion, I play with my fiance often and know what she throws to be successful. Maybe set up a Women's only "whats in your bag" thread? and the guys can see what you Ladies are throwing and maybe some will say, OMFG WTHIST, or say, yeah that looks right... heh..
Actually the last couple of times I have gone out I have thrown my Valk. forehand, and it is working much better for me than the sidewinder. I was just looking for maybe another disc that might work even better for me. I don't think I have ever tried to throw my Teebird forehand, so I will give that a try.
Nate I like your idea of the Women's only thread of "What's in your bag" , and I may just start one. As long as the guys don't get too critical because some of us are still pretty new, and still trying to figure all this out. It would be cool though to see what other chicks are throwing.
