Drive and Approach Line in the open

Postby Thatdirtykid » Fri Apr 14, 2006 9:29 pm

I know theres driving with putter threads and such. however I was wondering if people perfer a sweeping hyzer or a hyzer flip just to the right and let the fade pull it in.

I love driving wizards but I cant decide which is more accurate to throw straighter or a smooth hyzer line.

Just want to hear what others do, I know people who one and others who do the others. Mabey get some pros/cons discussion going

What exactly is a sweeping Hyzer?

When I throw my Rhyno I tend to Hyzer flip.

it's always more consistent to throw a sweeping hyzer.

anything that involves turn is inherently inconsistent in comparison.

If there's no wind I use a slightly nose up putter chuck from 130' and in (if it misses chains then the nose up lets it stall and settle <30' from the basket), if there's wind(70'-200') or it's further with no wind (>130') I use a sweeping hyzer with my stable Roc. With wind inside of 70' sweeping hyzer (usually, depending on wind angle) with my JK Aviar-X.

If I can get there with a sweeping hyzer I'll do that. I throw stall outs sometimes too for the same reasons as Weebl. It's also a very comfortable shot for me because that's how I throw catch discs.

What's a sweeping Hyzer? I've only been playing DG for little over a year.

ask scott :P bet $5 he calls you a newb hehe

a hyzer you pull out to the right that "bites" early and holds a constant angle until the later portion of the fade. so basically, a hyzer that sweeps from right to left. it is mainly to be differentiated from a flat hyzer, straight hyzer, nose down hyzer, etc.

they are basically those shots you see people pull 40' out to the right and then fade them back 40' to the pin. like this:
