Thumbs up for a pic of Carroll Marty in the OP. I actually know Carroll. He's a crazy old guy with a work ethic that would put any and all of ours to shame. He's been building things for Iowa State and the city of Ames for 30+ years and all he asks for in return is tickets to sporting events he wants to go to.

My favorite throw is probably a hyzer flip that turns slightly passed the neutral position and slowly holds the turn.

Also... really love watching people that are good at overhand... I'm not very good at it... so it is mesmerizing to see.

He casually walked to the top of the tee pad, and RIPPED a stand still chicken wing through a tight gap and parked a 280 ft uphill shot...he then said thank ya'll, walked to get his disc, and we never have seen him since

THAT was my favorite shot i've ever watched!

If you are on this site teach me your ways

Wow, hey. It's me!

Since it's been 2 and a half years since I last posted, how about I re-post.

I'm gonna drop the forehand roller for a less-seen shot.

Basically a massive hyzerflip with a very understable disc. When you want a disc to go left, then straight and possibly a little right (or S curve). I take something like a beat 168 Pro Destroyer or the brand new mvp amp for something slower, put it on a steep (angle about like /) hyzer. The steepness of the hyzer depends on how much you want it to flip up and/or over after it levels out.

Most holes that are "hyzer holes" aren't even curved, they are straight with a left or right finish. Picture the opposite, you have to make a corner first, then go straight. Executing that shot is just awesome.

Huh. I have heard that he still wanders around the course, but I haven't had the pleasure of meeting him yet. Thank you for that information about him and the legacy that he is leaving here in Ames.

That shot is a tricky one. Now with minimal leaves and foliage, my friends can hit a low drive underneath the branches on the right and get to the basket. During the warmer months, that path closes up. This one is a good hole along with 5 pro tee and pro tee on 16.

this is one of my favorites too. a variation on it would be like hole 2 West at Milo, a big curve to the left that then goes back right to straighten out for another 250 feet to the basket. i used a super beat in P-PD on a massive hyzer, it took the turn, straightened out, then rode flat while fighting the fade to penetrate towards the basket. pure awesomeness.

My favorite shot would have to be the hyzer-flip for huge distance. I just love watching the disc flip up and glide for seemingly forever (the chuckers' comments are always fun, too).

My second favorite shot would have to be the long 350'+ mid range shot that just goes dead nuts straight for its entire flight. There is something about seeing a shot go that far on a frozen rope that I can't quite seem to get over.

My third favorite shot would have to be the huge, slow, floaty anhyzer like you would throw with a Comet. There is no way that a disc flying so slow should ever get that kind of distance.
