I've been using my putter for 150'-200' shots lately, to great effect. Before this I'd never used it for anything longer than 50'-70'.
So I'd say its gone from a one-trick pony to a utility disc. Can pretty much trace it to 2 consecutive rounds at Hiller, and the Mother of All Necessities.

I know what every other shot means EXCEPT grenades, I have never heard of this shot. Someone care to educate a young player like me?

Thumbed grip but thrown as a spike hyzer. The disc will fly up, and fall straight down with backspin causing it to stick. Try it out in a field.

Can be a neat little up and over shot.

I know exactly where I can use that on a local course! I've never seen anybody in person do that but I know what you're saying. Definitely gonna practice that on the field next time, thanks for the explanation!

Unless you use an Epic then you get a huge long bomb drive.

Are you talking about grenades? A grenade ends up much shorter in distance from a typical overhand. Quite often, it's a good shot where you need to go higher vertically than forward.
