Hyzer flipping, how is it done?

I am curious to hear yalls thoughts and techniques on hyzer flipping. My backhand is really getting to a good level now and with the right disc I think I may be able to hyzer flip something to dead straight. So my question is what angle do you release your hyzer and what disc are you using? oh and just for reference I can drive about 350 pretty consistently currently. Curious to hear thoughts on flipping mids and putters too

The angle of release depends on the disc. All that will help you figure it out is field work. For example I can get a beat up Roadrunner to fly the same as a brand new Renegade if I change the angle and how hard I throw it. Grab a couple flippy discs, hit a field and mess around with angles.

I've only recently added the hyzer flip to my game and it's been the single most awesome throwing revelation for me! Basically, the key is you have to really understand your discs, each one responds differently to different amounts of hyzer. For instance I throw my underworld on probably 35 degrees hyzer and it will flip up to flat and still finish right at the end. My swords I throw with about 20 degrees hyzer and they flip up, turn right a bit and finish left.

Recently, I find that putting a tad bit of hyzer on amlost everything now helps with consistency and accuracy.

What discs? I throw my seasoned 170 DX Teebird, 167 Pro Leo, and 175 DX Roc on varying degrees of hyzer if I want them to go straight.

How much hyzer? Only knowing your discs will tell you that.

My advice is to throw (and follow through) on a hyzer plane. And really work on keeping the nose of the disc down to engage the turn, which is the 'flip' portion of the throw.

Try something understable like a Cobra, Meteor or Fuse. Slower discs are way easier to flip than drivers unless they are beat to crap DX/Pro-D/baseline plastic.

Take your flippiest driver, mid, putter. Throw it low and with a lot of hyzer. Watch it work wonders.

I use, beat rocs, Eagles, teebirds, destroyers for my hyzer flip duties. Mainly a lot of rocs and teebirds.

the hyzer flip is a awsome shot and needs to be in everyones arsenal. I take an extremely understable disc such as my underworld. i release it on a hyzer and due to the understable ability of the disc it rolls up very nicely and flies straight for about 300+ feet or if i do less hyzer will actually flip up and do a nice s curve. i use the hyzer flip for tunnel shots that require low height and good distance.

Hyzer flip is more of an explanation as to whats happening than a technique. If you throw something understable with hyzer, the result is a hyzer flip. I with Horsman that you just grab something flippy, give it hyzer and keep it flat and there you have it.

If you really want to work on it, grab a Diamond or a Fuse.

The initial trajectory of the disc matters, too:

I would not say that it takes an extremely understable disc to do at all. Its easier to see the concept when you are first starting to try it if you use a really understable disc but I use slightly beat rocs for nice hyzer flips that hold a little anyhyzer forever. It really matters more what you want the end result to be.
