Why does everyone call a hook thumber a thumber? It may be shorter to say that, but it's also incorrect.

I've never heard of a "hook thumber" and I'm not sure it sounds any more correct or descriptive than thumber. I guess the point, as you said, is that everyone is referring to the same thing...

Ive been using Z Flicks but I am getting too much turn for a regular hole I play that has a tight tunnel. Can be an ace run for me before but its just not making it through the gap. Looking to keep something vertical longer.

Hook thumber is what's typically just called a thumber nowadays. It's the overhand shot that turns to the opposite direction of a Tomahawk. The shot that was traditionally called a thumber is a roller shot where you grip the disc similarly to a grenade shot with the entire thumb along the inside of the rim ... at least so I've read

Well, my nickname going back to the 1970s is Hummer Thumber, and I was named for throwing the real thumber, not the hook thumber that others now shortened to the thumber. So you can see, this is a bit of a pet peeve of mine.

Here's more info on my disc golf bio: https://sites.google.com/site/okpdga...effrey-homburg

The hook thumber, the overhand, thumb on the rim portion of the disc-type shot should just be called the "anal bomb" now, to alleviate any further confusion.
