I agree with you that anhyzers are one of the hardest shots to throw, but I found Sidewinders to be squirrely on both hyzer and flat releases. Could never really tell when it was going to flip or fade, or if it wanted to at all.

You can defend Sidewinders all you want, but if other people with good releases with other discs (including Blake) tend to see this trend, then maybe you should accept that it could possibly be true.

My best anhyser discs right now are my S Wizard, beat dx roc, beat 2nd run CE TL (purchased used, cheap and perfectly beat in for this purpose) and when thrown right my SB Orc. The pure anhyser throw, as mentioned, is something that takes good technique. I agree that something more stable than a super understable turnover/roller disc works best. The combination of angle and speed are easy for me to get wrong lately but when the shot works right, its beautiful to behold, ain't it?

I agree that this is a different shot than a turnover released from hyser. For that I have Wizards again (best multipurpose P&A disc on the market?), Coyotes and a beat DX Teebird. Also playing around with a broken in Champ Leopard for this shot because by DX TB seems to be getting squirrelly.

The other thing that's good for Anhyser shots is a good forehard shot! I'm finally learning forehand after 2 years of play and I can tell already just from emergency use how much it will help my game.

For long annies I only throw my beat up 174 S Sabre. I just pick the point in the sky where I want it to turn right and it will glide that way the whole time. No fade, no S, just anhyzer. 8)

As much as I suck at long D, I can put a disc anywhere I want to within my range 90% of the time.

Granted I don't have the biggest arm or the best technique but it's really hard for me to get a nice anhyzer from almost any new disc-- especially premium plastic.

I don't mean I can't get them to turn right; I think almost any disc will turn if you put enough angle on it. But there's just no touch. A tad too little and you get that late fade. A tad too much and you shank it. It just seems like you're fighting the disc to get it to do what you want.

Even Stingrays are kinda tough straight out of the box. They fly much more consistently when they are beat up. After a few outings, you just throw them regularly and they turn right on their own. And I suppose after that you can hyzer flip them get them to turn earlier or later to control amount of turn. I just wish I had a better hyzer flip is all.

A DX Stingray is good for 7 airshots, then it becomes devoted roller status. It was difficult for me to release anhyzer for a long time, because i tried to strong arm it and not let my body act as a coil to whip my arm around, along with wrist roll problems. On flat ground, I'll use a stable-overstable driver such as Gazelle, Teebird, Starfire-x, Tsunami with anhyzer release as I am able to control when it flattens/fades more predictably. If I'm going uphill, stable-understable driver or sidearm. Downhill, midrange or flippy driver (Roc, Beast, Leopard). The Sidewinder is very inconsistant for me; if throwing an anny, and trying to replicate the flight twice, I'm much more consistantly able to reproduce the same line with other discs.
