Hzer Flip Question

Postby dstain19 » Tue Nov 23, 2010 7:59 am

This weekend I was trying out a Star Roadrunner and a S Line TD. I can finally consistently hyzer flip a disc into a nice long s shot, however it was a pretty wide S and would need significant room on the course. In playing dubs this weekend the guy I played with flipped a disc into a really tight s with not too much action to the left or to the right and it was very pretty. Unfortunately when I asked him to explain it was apparent he got pretty lucky and was not trying to do what he did.

How do a tweak my shot to make it a tighter S shot?

As always I appreciate the advice!

I'm not very familiar with the TD and I have no idea how far you're throwing, but the issue could be disc selection. The Roadrunner is high speed understable, so it's supposed to turn at high speeds. What you want is a disc that resists high speed turn and doesn't have much fade and then throw it clean. A beat DX Teebird is ideal for this. Most of the stable putters and mids fly like that, too.

For a tighter S-line you'd preferably need a disc that doesn't turn or fade that much. So the Roadrunner inherently is not that well suited for the shot, since it likes to turn over quite a lot. There are two types of S-TDs, the understable ones and the more neutral ones, out of these the more neutral ones should work better for this shot.

You could also try putting a tad more hyzer on either of the discs, so that it still turns over, but not as much (only tracking slightly to the right, RHBH). This could work if the disc doesn't have a lot of fade, but it is a bit fiddly.

Yeah. I'd suggest a Valkyrie, PD, OLF or SL for the tighter hyzerflip s curve lines.

This is the best answer to your question as you stated it.

For a moment I thought I'd delete everything before that, since this was a technique, not an equipment thread. =)

Hyzer flip a Buzzz or Stalker flat, and it'll hold the line all the way down the fairway, and only fades if it has more height and/or nose-up attitude that causes it to stall.

Gazelle, Teebird, OLF, PD are discs that can be made to flip up to flat but not all the way over. Or you can adjust you power on a flippier disc so it just barely turns over.
