No it's not, it's grip lock, which is almost never caused by grip. We can't tell you how to change your grip to prevent grip lock because there is no way to do that. You even said you tried at...

I'm not saying this to argue, but really think about whether or not you know what to look for in "good" or "bad" form. If there are people who you think have "good" form but don't throw far and...

It's probably possible to grip a disc in a way that would make it possible to hold on to during a pull with good mechanics and timing. However, that is not at all what you described in the OP. You...

A hyzer or flex shot with a overstable disc is probably a higher percentage shot, but it's important to be able to do either one. So in practice I'll mix it up or work on the one I'm worst at, but...

I think it has to do with nose angle vs trajectory. The "nose" of the disc changes as the disc changes direction so a real nose down hyzer will be less nose down as it flattens.

I was going to guess to double the total hole length. It looks like that's not a bad estimate.

Technically, hyzer and anhyzer refer to the angle of the disc at release. It's actually incorrect to say a disc "hyzers" at the end of it's flight. It's more that it "falls in the hyzer direction."...

So, because rating systems are clearly "worthless" you should buy your discs from us because we have a better way. It's an...

When I first started the guys that introduced me to the sport swore up and down that if the disc ended up hanging in the chains it was a 1 stroke penalty.

I can think of reasons. What if you need a really steep spike anhyzer that needs to go up and down quickly? I'd throw a very overstable disc with a weak forehand for that. What if you need a 80'...

Just remember that putters do fly well nose up, so one of your flaws is not getting the nose down then throwing only putters won't help much, if at all with that.
