my favorite disc to flip right now is the nuke ss I have been getting great d with this disc. Downhill the other day with a tail wind I threw about 425 it was nice. But I also like to flip up a newish tee bird they will fly forever if flipped right.

I think if you have strong enough snap to hyzer-flip the more stable plastics this is the way to go. Watch how they just refuse to turn right but stay straight and true the whole way through. Wow, that rhymed.

I defiantely like the nyzer flip for distance, usually with a beat in stable discs, like a PD. I am working on my flex shot, however, because they certainly have their place.

Just saying, accuracy wise, I can place a Flex Shot 'decently'. But the hyzer flip with my Roadrunner, for distance, it is very difficult to predict it's landing area, because if it makes an S, it can go right a very long ways before coming back, or if it stays straight, it can have a similar flight to my Teebird, and those 2 landing points are no where near each other, so I have trouble justifying this shot for any reason. With the Leopard and Teebird, I don't have that problem, except the Teebird once in a while, and even that S is slight.

definately hyzer flip. If you can get a lightweight yet overstable in statistics disc to flip it will go forever. Plus this technique is is surprisingly controlable.

the hyzerflip works for me. my farthest drive was with a beat teebird in a left to right wind, 545'. but it was downhill, so take that into consideration.

now im hyzerflipping a vision with much success.

This may be a little off topic but did most pro's in the old days throw hyzer-flips for distance? I know everything that was thrown back then basically are what we call mid's nowadays.

For Max distance I use a 169 Nuke Z on a hyzer flip. For max distance where I need more control because of OB or wind/etc I use a Star Destroyer on flex shots.
