Is this done with a massive understable disc? Not sure how I can throw on a hyzer line and have it flip up and then drift right

It is done with an understable disc. You've got to torque the disc enough to get it above its intended cruise speed to get it to "flip". Putting the disc on a hyzer angle is what keeps it from "flipping" completely. You use a hyzer angle and a disc used for an anhyzer throw to achieve a straight result.

Conversely on a flex shot, you do just the opposite to do the same thing.

If you're still pretty new to disc golf, then yes, you'd have to use a massively understable disc, like a Stingray or Stratus, to execute a hyzer flip. But big arms throw hyzer flips with Wraiths and even Destroyers.

I'm not very good at hyzer flips myself, but I do sometimes hyzer-flip my Sidewinder, when I have to hit a gap slightly to the left and then go to the right AFTER the gap. The disc starts out flying left, comes up flat, and then -- because it's a Sidewinder -- keeps turning rightward.

You guys have me intrigued! I've been playing with stable discs - hence the confusion of flipping. I'll have to pick a couple more discs up to try out and see how they can better the game for me! THX!

Its a very nice shot to have once you get it figured out. It also helped me tremendously when it came to learning how to get my weight forward on my throws.


Likewise, the flex shot seems to be the "easiest" way to get distance. What I am just now learning is how accurate it can be for approach shots using a overstable mid/putter such as a Roc/Wasp/Pig.
