a Hyzer flip is a shot that flips (or stands up) from being thrown at a hyzer angle to flat. This shot is useful for throwing down tight fairways where an S shot doesn't have room to work.

You should see if any PDGAs were played there before and check the average score for each division. From there compare them to your average score at the course(s) and add a couple of strokes since everyone shoots better in casual rounds. Make your decision after seeing what division is most similar to your score.

I'll help Frank out here.

This part is commonly referred to as a "nipple" and is actually where the mold is left open so they can inject the plastic. They then cut off some of the excess, but not all of it. The dot left over is what you're referring to.

This is a complicated question. Flat rocs for example start out more stable than domey rocs but beat in to flippy quicker. Domey forces are often more stable than flat forces but flat predators are more stable than domey predators. Do you have a particular mold you want to know about?
