Was doing some field work today...

Discs are leaving fast but a dropping of to the right hard like I am throwing way anhyzer...

Right when they should flex out and start to glide... the drop off down into the dirt.

Advice?

Was just throwing Sabres in mutliple plastics...

Nose up? This happens to me if I get the nose up (well, it's more like tail down, because I'm ripping on a straight line but let the back of the plate drop through the whip) and I'm throwing into a tailwind. Can you see the top of the flight plate? Also, the sabre's aren't the best flex discs; they tend to hold a line pretty well, then stop and drop. You may be getting some off axis rotation and lack of follow through, there are a number of possible causes of your problem. Perhaps an idea of how far and high you're throwing the disc. When you throw the sabre with a hyzer, is the same problem still happening?

Left to right wind possibly?

Is your follow through up and to the right or low and to the right? From low to high across your chest is a heyser, low and right anheyser torque.

Maybe you just need a bit more heyser....

if you're throwing E sabres... i know at least the ones i have are VERY nose angle sensitive and flippy. so i wouldn't be suprised if that is what is causing your frustration.

I think it was a combination of things... one I didn't change my angle from when I was throwing my Gazelles and two - nose up...

I really now I could see the hot stamp as it they were leaving...

Practice, Practice and more Practice.
