Spike hyzers and flex shots are awesome. They're easy to "range" with and super predictable.

Either throw it high with a hyzer for a big arcing shot (spike hyzer) or throw it with an anhyzer off...

That's the same conclusion I came to when I thought it out for myself, for what it's worth (hint: not much).

The Valk, Viking, XS, Avenger, and Orion LS all come to mind as discs that are fairly...

Exactly. The whole point of the drill was to help get the feel of the hit. Since then several other, much better, drills have been developed so the right pec drill is mostly obsolete. I wouldn't...

The Avengers I've had in different plastics have all been pretty different discs. The Z was a great moderatly overstable driver, the X was a nice distance driver with a bit of turn and the D flew...

Carrying a Teebird along with another control driver is probably overlap, but it's pretty common. Most use the Teebird for long, straight shots and the other fairway driver for line shaping. The...

Depending on how much room you have to the left a pretty flat to very slightly anhyzer shot with a pretty overstable disc might work,...

Another thing to consider is with slower discs you also need more height. Throwing high without a stall out can take a bit of practice, even if you're half hitting. I don't know if this is actually...

What rules? Unsanctioned tournaments aren't required to use PDGA rule so it's up to the TD on what's allowed. If you don't like the TD's rules, then don't play. Isn't that exactly what you'd tell...

I don't really see it as a hole in their line up. Sure if you think of it as a bingo board with an empty square at "speed 7, understable" it looks like a hole, but in practice that square isn't...

I've also seen new players wading around in ponds because their Teebird or Buzzz didn't flex like it "always does." ;)

Don't forget with very overstable discs like the Banshee you can throw them on an anhyzer and get a big 'S' that fades hard (flex shot). Your Teebird or Buzz won't do that.

I'd still get someone else to confirm it. I'm like 90% sure that's what happened, though. You can probably PM Chuck for the official story.

Teebirds for straight shots and your favorite of the others for shaping lines. I throw Gazelles because I have them, but if I were starting over I'd go with the Eagle X.
