Good stuff....thanks for digging this up. I had seen this before, but never watched it for OAT.

The throw at :41 does not appear to have any wrist roll/OAT....but plenty of wobble. I see the same amount of flight plate from when the disc comes across his body until the disc leaves his hand

1:13 has no wrist roll/OAT. If anything, there is a slight bobble to the hyzer as the disc is ripping out.

1:41 has a little bit of wrist roll and it is an anhyzer angle of release.....but there is not enough evidence whether the continued anny flight is caused solely by the angle of his wrist at release or the rotation of his wrist during release.

My argument in this thread is that it is all about the essentially static angle of the wrist at release and an minuscule at best affect due to vertical speed imparted to the edge of the disc (cause by wrist and/or arm and/or back motion) at the release. Not saying that I am completely right, but this very cool video does not do much to change my mind.
