Hope I am imagining the shot correctly....
Overstable discs won't be have the right to left movement that a true hyzer will have. One of the most common mistakes I see AMs making is using their overstable discs to throw hyzers with. They will always complain that they can't get their hyzers to fly far enough to the left. 9 times out of 10 its because they are throwing a stall or hyzer with a Firebird, or XXX, or the like. The easy solution is throwing a stable to slightly understable disc on a true hyzer line. Slower discs like Teebirds will hold the line better than fast discs like Destroyers or Nukes, too. As soon as those warp speed drivers start slowing down, they just want to smash into the ground. Slow drivers keep penetrating forward and left.
