A few beginner definitions

Postby rodman » Mon Apr 03, 2006 12:58 pm

Well, some of you know now that I'm addicted and read all i can on this and other sites. But I just need a baseline so that I fully understand all concepts being communicated. I have a few definitions that I need from you guys. It'll be very elementary for you.

Please define the following terms by giving the most common intent when using the word/phrase.

The disc gets Flippy?

Turn over?

The standard direction of a broken in disk to turn??.... I think it means they will go right on you.

More to come later. Thanks.

if a right handed thrower tossing backhand throws a "flippy" disc with a hyzer release (you following me so far?) the disc will "flip" up from the hyzer and start travelling straight, or even to the right.
a "hyzer flip" is what this type of shot is called.
the "flip" could also be called the "high speed turn"... discs with a "-4 high speed turn" on innova's rating scale would be considered "flippy" by many. however i usually associate a flippy disc with being a disc that didn't start out flippy but got worn in to become flippy.
a "turnover" shot is any shot travelling to the right (for the rhbh release)... this could be a result of the release angle (ie: anhyzer), or the disc (ie: a flippy one)... a turnover shot will finish to the right of where you threw it.

hope these descriptions make sense.

He covered just about everything. I've noticed that players say turn over when they puposely throw a right turn shot but call it a flip when it turns without intent.
