Worst Fake Terminology?

Had a guy who had been playing 10 years tell a newb he needed to throw "anti-level" to get distance...think he was describing anhyzer but not sure.

And he said this while handing the poor kid a flick, sayings its a good beginner disc

I bought a flick when I was starting out as well.

The disc still doesn't have much use as I can't get any good distance yet.

One of our locals says 'stable-up' all the time when discribing fade. I.e. Man that disc never stabled-up, it just stayed straight the whole time..

Pretty much all the locals now say it.

My brother in law bought his first ever disc because the salesman said it was "Turn-corrected"...pretty sure he (the salesman) had no idea what he was talking about.

I always say "GET NEW!" when I want something to start fading.

I've heard a few people scream "GET STABLE!" when they want the disc to fade.
