Do pros throw alot of hysers?

Postby covey » Thu Aug 23, 2007 10:58 pm

I've been watching the pro worlds on DGTV trying to soak up what I can form wise from the best in the game and I noticed some thing.

I always thought of the hysers shot as a way to just get around stuff but I am notice on a few of the holes all four of the pros in the final foursome are throwing big hysers in the open seemingly when there is not reason to do so.

What is the noob missing here shot strategy wise?

Easiest shot to throw and control I would guess.

If you throw hard, straight at a basket and the disc doesn't hit the basket or the ground, it can keep going. One of the hardest things to learn is the finesse to make the disc stop when you want it to. I think players can more easily learn distances with hyzers (I need a 300 foot shot, this is how hard I have to throw it) rather than trying to get the disc to stop while it's still parallel to the ground.

Yes, this has always been a weakness in my game. I throw stable discs with anhyzer to get distance, when a less stable disc with hyzer would go as far and be more predictable. I really need to practice hyzers more.
