"nose up" ok! discs

Postby calvarycoffee » Sat Jul 08, 2006 3:25 am

i know certain discs are super sensitive to nose angle. got to see it in action yesterday, wow.

it was crazy nutz to see wraiths and xs's fly on the same trajectorys and get totaly different distance results.

so, i'm curious, what driver would pull off a long(est) straight(est) shot when thrown with a lot of height?

say, like you wanted to drive long and straight over a tall fence?

wider the wing = more nose angle sensitive.

more stable/overstable = more nose angle sensitive.

the key to throwing high is to commit an angle to it... like, anhyzer or hyzer. this will make it MUCH easier to get nose down than trying to throw flat.
