that was a thumber, not a forehand, so it's not that it was that OS, but the natural flight of a thumber disc thrown to skip right.

It looks to have the same directional rotation as a forehand? Was the disc upside down or something?

Basically he threw a thumber at a low arm slot that made it look like a FH, but essentially yes the disc was upside down.

At 27:58 he throws the same shot, and you can see more clearly it's a low thumber.

For the record, is there a difference between throwing a low arm slot thumber and throw a forehand shot with the disc upside down?

you can't really throw a good forehand shot with the disc upside down.

interesting... I've never thought to throw that shot and never seen anyone do it either... come to think of it, most of those I play with are either bh or fh and very seldom throw any tommies or thumbers... with the exception of tallpaul who throws a lot of overhand...

I dunno... doesn't seem like a great shot *shrug*

I can do the same thing with a right-side-up Champion TeeRex or Opto XXX... Talk about a useless shot.

Its pretty useful if you need a quick flex shot that would require alot of touch with an overstable disc forehand. Also it makes it where people who dont feel comfortable with a forehand could throw a thumber instead. Also is usefull for quick skip shots to grt out of trouble
