You say that the Orc may be a little much for BH at my power. Any other suggestions for a S curve disc for me? That's mainly what I use the orc for, or for shorter left turn holes
I've thrown 5 grams heavier Orc and at your backhand distance it'd be a clear indicator of off axis torque if you put more than a little hyzer on it. But at your weight I don't know.
Anything that makes the disc spin on any other axis than around the center is caused by form flaws termed off axis torque I think around here. Though the term actually describes how the disc behaves. There are several causes to OAT. Telegraphing the shot is one thing to read and I think there was something about that on the articles section and it's described in several threads. Still should be easier to find than OAT.
Pushing wrist so far down that the disc isn't in line with the bones in your forearm is a culprit to OAT. As well as the wrist collapsing upwards late in the throw. Wrist rolling either way especially clockwise can kill you. Blake has written that you can lose up to 30 % of power with OAT. I don't doubt that. You can also roll other joints than wrist but wrist is the major culprit. Wrist behaves a lot differently at full power compared to 80 % or less. It's much more difficult to keep wrist oriented properly than other parts of the arm. But as I said there's a lot more detailed theoretical and application information sprinkled around in older threads. But these initial bits should keep you occupied for a long time. That's not a promise that's a threat based on how often the uglies keep creeping back. No ladies I'm not talking of you.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.
