I've always thought a Grenade was a spike hyzer thrown with the disc upside down.

Not sure what to call the throw in the OP, I used to call it a Scooby, but was proven wrong:

The OP is describing a scoober. You don't have to throw no-look to have it be a scoober. You can throw a scoober while squared up, it just isn't as useful as a break-mark shot normally.

A low release and high release backhand are still backhands. Your hand position and release style define the throw, not your body position.

Sweet! New trick shot to practice during field work. I love throwing goofy shots.

Around here we call it a pancake. Land it flat, watch it stick.

I think I will stick to calling it a Scoober or Scooby

anyway it is now my preferred method of putting from 15 feet and in and has essentially eliminated all of those stupid annoying frustrating bogey inducing missed putts that I used to have

yes it's unconventional but for me highly effective and if it means I am shaving strokes then all the better

I basically "2 inch punch" Scooby from about my neck height
a short sharp stroke

as with most putts you still have to consider wind

The final arbiter of all disputes says that in Ultimate this throw is called a Scoober: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flying_...niques#Scoober

Haha, I use a Scoober for shorty putts too, but usually 10 feet and in And never in a tournament.
