So I'm fairly new to the game, roughly been playing for 4 months. I posted a video a few weeks ago and got some excellent feedback that I'm working with concerning my form. Mainly still working on getting the nose of the disc down consistently.
So I get roughly an hour to two hours per week where I have enough free time to hit the field and do some practice throwing. Basically I've been spending my time working on the "working from the hit forward (backword?)" first drill and then adding one step. And then working on full shots so that I can adjust to the grip that I'm trying out (I played for 3 months without ever having the thumb forward).
When I'm working on full shots at this point all I'm trying to do it basically hit my target - I stand at one end of the soccer field and try and land around the goal (or in the goal) of the other end. I'm not spending anytime on shaping shots. Should I, at this stage be putting time into hyzer, anny, flip hyzer, s-curve etc? Or should I just be worried about creating something repeatable and later work on all of the shape shots.
We have two "worthwhile" courses in Tucson, one of which is fairly short but requires more touch/lines. I can get around that course in +3 to +5. The other course is substantially longer (2 holes +500 ft, 1 hole +800 ft) but is fairly wide open - that is you really need to bomb to score well which I get around in +15 to +20. During the winter the longer course is playable (it floods half the year) so my friends and I end up playing there 90% of the time, hence I've been trying to work on adding distance without thinking about shot lines.
Since working my grip moe "thumb forward" I've found that my "misses" have gone from the skied hyzerish shot to a pulled anhyzer (LHBH) and my discs that used to S-curve and mainly pulling left. I've put away my Katana and wraith and have come back to throwing mainly the valk, beast and leapord off of the tee and even going to the buzzz for many shorter holes.
I guess I've rambled on quite a bit here, what I'm really wondering is whether my practice time should be spend more on building power and then working in finesse or if I should be working the opposite or just do both at the same time. Also, can someone explain what exactly the flip hyzer shot looks like? Am I to understand that it starts hyzer and then flips anny?
