I hit hole 4 (in long pin position) at Towne Lake in McKinney, Texas with a Thumber. My 150-Flick knifed through the trees and hit the ground right in front of the basket, then it bounced up and over the front of the pan for an ace. I was playing on a card with 6 people, so my disc is signed with all kinds of comments about how discs do NOT fly/bounce like mine did.

I was playing The North Valley Course in Inver Grove MN where I threw my second shot blind. I was just hoping it would stop near the whole. I got a very lucky bounce, dropped from a tree branch right into the basket.

Rec tees from hole 3. Keep in mind this was awhile ago. I throw from only long tees there now and still get really close on 3's long tee. Talk about a huge thumber shot

Damn you, I have been so close to aceing that one and hole 1 with a thumber always chains out on me.

i've aced overhand twice- one was a very short (150ish) hole and went in with only a left to right flight pattern, one was somewhat longer and went in more directly downward on the helix aspect of its flight.

The last ACE we paid out here was an overhand shot on hole #1 (White tee/Short pin). I can't remember if he bounced it in or what, but I handed over $512.00 for the effort.

I have zero control on overhand shots so if I ever aced a hole it would be absolute luck.

I received my first Flick in the mail today. After playing a round with it, I noticed it did take a few odd "bounces" straight up from time to time. Interesting, as I've never seen a disc hop like that.
