100-200 ft up-shots-help me please!!!!!

Postby j.popiano » Sun Jun 03, 2007 12:55 am

It seems like on long holes 450+ my upshot is either way short or way long. Im left handed and throw backhand, most of my upshots are w/ my first run buzzz or a slightly flippier esp buzzz if I throw either of themhard they go in the right direction but to far, if I throw either of them a little softer the low speed stability kicks in and it hyzers away from the pin. I guess i could play the hyzer line always but I might as well use a FB or WX not a first run buzzz, anyone outthere that has dealt with this before and overcame it please give me alittle insight it would be great. Im guessing it something with my form but thats another issue..........

Buzzz is beefy. Approach with a putter.

try going and playing a round and throw your drive then when you come to your upshot throw several different upshots with your buzz and your putter try throwing more control shots hopefully it will work for you as good as it has worked for me

when i first started i used to Hyzer in with my upshot, the flight was more predictable then going straight at the basket.

thanks karma i practiced that today at gvcc. it seems that my aviars are the disc of choice you just have to learn how to throw them right. Its amazing that they fly so darn good. My buzzz's have a place in my bag just not short appoaches.

I am a Buzzz only mid-range thrower and I had the same problem last year. I switch to using a putter. The trick then is to find the right putter. I use a JK Aviar; it has a slight hyzer to it at slow speeds. I would also recommend a Wizard or Warlock; Gateway putters are money for upshots.

go to "play it again" and buy the most beat- up looking; roc, aviar, leopard, buzz, (any mid range) and throw set shots. The discs that are still overstable will be perfect when you throw them taking a few steps instead of a set-shot.
