throwing a driver and having it turn alot

Postby geoffreylaw » Tue May 29, 2007 11:03 pm

I've been practicing alot this year trying to get more D. Acouple weekends back I went to Jones to practice for 3 hours. I was mostly concentrating on throwing smooth and somehow over the coarse of practicing added about 50 ft to my d(300' to 350' roughly). which i consider a miracle. since the I haven't gotten it any furthur( throwing a star Wraith) but is turning more. So my question is, should I release my throw hyzer and let it flip flat to get more d or should i move up in stability to a teerex OR should i do something else. Thanks.

hyzer flips = more accurate D.

Depending on what level of player you are, I'm not so sure you're going to get a Teerex or Star wraith to hyzer flip though... Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe you might want to use a Pro Wraith, or pro Beast to hyzer flip. The Teerex is real beefy, moreso than the wraith, so I'm not sure why it's your go-to distance driver. The Wraith isnt quiet as beefy as the Teerex (esp in pro plastic in a non-mx-wt disc), but still is beefy. I'd day go down to a Pro Beast, or a Star Orc. If you're driving 300', I worry that either your trajectory, or your strength isn't quit there to be hitting 400 w/ a Teerex...

(now praying the my personal theories are correct, and that I'm not ripped to shreds by those who know better... ) :lol:
Seriously though, I hope this helps. I currently use a Pro Beast as my go to driver, but my beat-in pro Beast is my hyzer flip disc.

thanks for the input. I can actually hyzer flip a Wraith easily. My main question is if I would get more D by hyzer-flipping or just throwing it flat and letting it turn and fade later.

hyzer flip... and it depends on the hole and what you need the disc to do! throwing it flat (FOR ME) actually ends up not being as straight (less predictable) as the hyzer flip. The hyzer flip flight path is a more accurate. right now you might be just going to for distance, but at some point youll need to transfer that distance on to a hole with a tight fairway... you could end up all over the place throwing flat.

After learning to hyzer flip overstable discs (which requires solid snap), I learned the opposite: throwing understable discs on a straight hyzer (which takes far less snap, "smooth arm"). Once you get that you can combine the smooth arm and the snap for easier D.
