And as long as we're on the topic, a line is defined as having zero width. The line of play is not the width of the disc -- it's a zero-thickness line running...

Generally speaking, the weather in the NC mountains is pretty lousy during the winter. You won't really be getting much of a "break" from PA weather by visiting Ashe County. The local weatherman is...

Probably about 40-45' for me. Any longer than that and I'll fluff it up, giving it a "maybe it'll go in if I'm lucky, but when I miss, it's not going to far."
From 50', what's my success percentage...

I don't know how you can misinterpret me so thoroughly. Let's start with some background: I have a Master's degree in aerospace engineering. I concentrated on aerodynamics. I know how this stuff...

Doof hasn't said that at all. Wobble might indeed make a disc fly more understable. Aerodynamics is black magic, and unsteady aero even more so. I have a Masters degree in the topic and I couldn't...

So, like, inertia? A plane resists the perturbation because it's heavy. A disc is more affected by a wind gust because it's light. Or, probably more accurately, light relative to its wing size (wing...

A ball has nothing to do with this conversation. It's a complete red herring.

Aerodynamic stability is the tendency of an object in flight to return to its initial state after a perturbation. An...

When you pull the disc out of your bag you're applying a torque to the disc (spin or roll). When you flip it around in your hand walking to the tee pad you're applying a torque (spin or flip). During...

He's just changing the axis. It's still only rotating around one axis, but he just changed the orientation of that axis. All he's doing is introducing wobble.


Nope. The part of the disc with the...

Well, for one, the axis of rotation is always through the center of the disc. Wobble occurs when the axis of rotation is not perpendicular to the flight plate.

Lol. But I bet you're generally right on that one. Flutter = drag. Drag = less glide.

I think his first thrown example (2:00) shows a very good example of wobble in the same fashion as that gif. His second throw (2:12) looks a bit more side-to-side. I'd be quick to blame that on frame...

The primary rip point is your thumb and index finger. If you're managing to touch the disc after it leaves your thumb/index finger, I'd like to see how you're doing it.

After the disc has a spin and a trajectory, it's left your hand; you can't touch it.
If you're adjusting your throw while the disc is still in your hand, then all you're doing is giving it a new...

So it's a hyzer-flip, S-turn shot. Not too complicated.

One-angle = pure hyzer
Two-angle = anhyzer release, fade finish.
Three-angle = hyzer release, flip up to turn, fade finish.
