"flipping discs!" is usually what I say when I do my Napoleon Dynamite impression on the course. Hope that helps.

THANKS!!!

I always thought that making a disc go right was called anhyser.

Man - I didn't realize how hard this was going to be...... flippy must be an advanced terminology not ready for publication

Flippy is just DG'er slang to describe understable discs. You'll also hear DG'ers referring to overstable discs as "pigs" or "piggish". Innova ran with that one and named a putter after it.

I always thought the terms "loose" (understable) and "tight" (overstable), but people would probably get them mixed up.

It is if you didn't intend for it to go that direction.

If you are flippin your roc and its only going 150', I think something in your form is off. I used to not like my roc and it only went about 150', but I've recently got my form down much better and can throw it 300' now with no problem and it goes straight. Never thought I would actually say that.

An anhyzer throw is when you start the disc out with that angle. Overstable discs will quickly come out of the anhyzer, but understable ("flippy") discs will turn over further and hit the ground, unless thrown very high.

I said I could control it that far. I can chuck the thing 250-300' but it won't land 10' from the basket...... I can probably get it within 50' fairly consistently, but that doesn't help a whole lot with my putting except give me practice.

Most of the courses I play here in Kansas City allow me to drive a shot within 100-150' every time. So obviously this tends to be the range I get most of my practice with it at. I played a hole this past weekend that was a hard dogleg right where I could not see the basket. Tee marker said 239' so I let one fly with my ROC on a great anhyzer. Landed 30' from the basket - got so excited I got stupid and left my put short. "flippin' disc!"

Form always needs work - but that's what keeps me coming back for more.

Anhyzer is when you release the disc with an anhyzer angle and it holds it.

Hyzer-flipping is when you start the disc on a hyzer line and the snap and power of the throw causes it to flip up to flat and then drift to the right or stay straight. Great for distance shots and very accurate for tight fairways.

Flipping a disc is just referring to "flipping" it up from hyzer to flat. Turning a disc over is when it is released flat and then "turns" over to the right.

Flex Shot is the opposite of Hyzer. Your going to release something with a anhyzer angle and allow the natural overstability of the disc to fight back to the left. Flex shots make great distance drives aswell as are very accurate for tight fairways.
