Tell that to a relay, which I have also thrown 350+ so it's not what I'd call "flippy". Or a river, or really any understable fairway. My champ leopard3 turns at 250 and it's 170+ grams and almost brand new. And I throw putters over 300 so I don't have OAT

Sure thing buddy, as if you can't learn to throw putters far with OAT.

And wtf are you throwing leos 270' for when you throw putters muh 300 feet? Sounds like bullcrap my friend.

Look this isn't brain science. Distance is a function of disc speed,, spin, and launch angle. Turn is a function of disc speed and OAT. Maxing out at 270' indicates a geriatric level of disc speed. Which of course means that turn only happens with OAT.

Unless you guys have magical ways to make a disc turn without disc speed and without OAT. Have we Jedi among us?

I throw putters over 300’ but regularly throw buzzz, Teebird, and Leo3 on holes under 300’. Do you disc golf SonicGuy? I sure do get flip on sub 300’ throws with Cheetahs and Leo3 with a clean release.

I think it is impossible for a statement like this to be true 100% of the time.

In your world does "flip" exclude being able to throw an anhyzer shot?
Are you saying even lightweight plastics won't flip (turn) for weaker throwers without OAT?


In my experience, turn or turnover can easily accomplished by a weak thrower (like me) without any OAT. I don't throw over 300 feet, but I can absolutely, positively throw a turnover shot or a hyzer flip shot with Fairways and Drivers like the Leopard, Valkyrie, Sidewinder, Roadrunner, Beast, Mamba, Shryke or Katana just to name a few. These are not beat in discs or DX discs, these are ordinary lightweight Champion and Star disc models that have a turn rating of 5 or more (except Valk Turn is only 4).
