Although I'm not sure what if it flips to flat at some point before fading again, is it still termed the same. It could be a hyzer flip then, but that doesn't need to fade back necessarily, if thrown low enough. Or straight?

Theres some picture is Blake T.'s old article about some of the hyzer shots: http://www.discgolfreview.com/resour...s/angles.shtml

Reading that I realized that what I have though as hyzer flip is actually flattened sweep hyzer. I can't grasp the idea of throwing hyzer to the left instead of right...

Edit: Actually I think I have been throwing roll curves using wrist roll with my tangent and wondered why it doesn't stay flat after flipping to flat...
Per that article, i would say
sweep hyzer = hyzer bomb
knife hyzer = spike hyzer

and the others are weird and i i think the author is stretching for content.

I also disagree with his "wrist roll" commentary completely, but that's another conversation.

I respectfully disagree. It's like most terms in disc golf; the meanings differ from one person to the next.

Something went wrong. Please make sure you added the video correctly. Click here to see how YouTube videos should be embedded. There could also be a technical issue that's not your fault. Click here to view the video on YouTube's site. If this link doesn't work, you did something wrong.

I played with Robbie Bratten last night. He threw more spike hyzers than anyone I've ever played with; around 20% of his tee shots.

That video is how I think of them exactly.

What Nikko called Power Grip Spike Hyzer is exactly what i consider a spike hyzer.
What he called Power Grip Control Hyzer is what I'd call a Hyzer Bomb or just regular Hyzer shot.

I don't know why I have been making it so hard on myself


Lol! Thanks for helping me out.
