It's worth noting the differences between a backhand anhyzer and a forehand. In what situations would you prefer one over the other? How are the lines different?

BH anhyzer:
-Good for going over obstacles
-Can go really far
-Takes a more gradual line along the curve
-Easier to mess up because you have to get the nose angle and release angle perfect to make the disc do what you want

FH Hyzer:
-More consistent shot
-You can see the target while throwing the shot
-Good for going around obstacles
-Good for a shot shape where you need to go past an obstacle and then get over behind it
-Flex Forehands are a thing
-Forehand skip shots rule

I have the draft on Google Docs, y'all can view it, but only I can edit it. I'm doing it this way so that as things are edited y'all can see how it's changed. I know it has no introduction/conclusion and probably need to have the third paragraph broken up, but this is a rough draft, and those are usually the last things I tackle. The final isn't die til Monday the 25th at 9 AM ET, so I've got time.

This is the closest motion to the throw though Disc Golfers might have backhand and forehand the other way from Tennis.

AFAIK the grip is very different between discus and DG FH. Discus is palm down, whereas FH is palm up. This has consequences for the elbow alignment and thus the joint direction.

Please let us know about your experiences. I'm curious if you can get any leverage from the 360 in DG FH.

Yes the grip is very different. I wasn't very good, but I had decent footwork, which is mostly what is at play here. I did get aboit 25' on my BH, but it also had more OAT IIRC, its been a while since I threw 360s BH, but on my local courses, only 2 holes really have a reason to, so it's something that I tried and put aside for later. I believe I tried 360 FHs, with comical results, but that was ~2 years ago.
