One of the easiest is manipulating the pinch point between the thumb and pointer finger (which is the pivot point and rip point).
Finger pressure up into the plate equal more nose down and more tendancy to anhyser. It will also create some torque and wobble if the rip is not clean. I believe this promotes a wrist roll over.
More thumb pressure equals more nose up or nose neutral and more hyser with the cleanest release. This is better for mids and putters and headwind shots with a driver (or hysers obviously).
More pivot before the wrist snap equals anhyser. For power anhyser try as much pivot as possible.
Now that I am pivoting the disc and snapping with wrist extension, arc etc at the same time I can see how much I am losing from lack of grip strength when using wide winged drivers. the smaller the wing, the more violent the pop from the rip finger. Conversely, the wider the wing, the more difficult it is to snap the crap out of the pivot (or it becomes hit and miss).
I have accepted the fact that I have peaked in my throwing for arm speed. I cannot throw any faster... However, I still have plenty to gain from imparting torque into the pivot point of the disc. What I really see is that my "pop" from small winged drivers is superior to the wide winged drivers. If I can figure out how to pop a Wraith the same way I can pop a Roc, TB or Eagle I think I will have something.

More thumb pressure more tendency to hyser.

Nose down anny. I stepped it off at 175 yards. Twice.
Which mold Brad?

I think I'm going to start throwing all hyzers and gradually work my way back to flat. That should help cut out my accidental anhyzer problem.
I think I may be dropping my shoulder, but I'm not really sure what it means to drop one's shoulder. Could someone explain that? Where in the throw would it occur? Can you point to a video clip of someone doing it?
