throwing left to right

Postby Spencer Olson » Thu Dec 08, 2005 5:52 pm

I am 14 and i can throw 325' with a orc but i have one problem. i can't do any thing right on any dogleg right. i can get a good under stable throw 1 out of 8 (with a Z xs what i think is my most under stable disc) times but that is it. i under stand that i have to change my release but i am having trouble getting it. i am asking if any one has an under stable midrange to driver seggestion and some words on techniqe.

first off...

the shot you are looking for (long gradual right turn) is very difficult with any z or champ plastic disc.

anything beat and dx is usually ideal... as for new, i would push a dx leopard in that spot.

or... work on throwing anhyzers.

I started throwing a z xs for anhyzers on dog leg rights. I'll let Blake tell you about anhyzers. I just kinda think of releasing a little higher and tilting the disc to the right a bit (dont over do it, you'll get a roller).

After a month of working on this, a roller follows naturally.

throwing an anhyzer changes mechanics in a few ways but the basic jist of it is to just throw with the outside edge of the disc higher than the inside edge.

1) you have to be more weight forward than throwing flat/hyzer
2) you will have to focus more to keep the disc close to your body
3) read the telegraphing article to see the differences in starting orientation
4) your follow through will be lower

yes, i live in minneapolis but i've only played basset twice (once in 2001, once this year).

very straight if you have less than 300' of power.

very forgiving for newer players (does not have a lot of nose angle dependence).

there are better discs if you are searching for something to hold a turn.

stuff that was once stable but is now understable generally make the best turnover drivers since
1) they generally have greater air friction which will aid the disc in turning towards the direction of the spin
2) their flight characteristics will change very little with further wear. discs that are understable when new generally age into being "too understable" very quickly.
