Yes, very noticeably in headwinds. He goes up to super stable discs really fast. And also he is unable to find anything to hyzerflip in right to left winds. They do flip but also turnover and slam to the ground, where I can get really good penetration hyzerflipping PD's or even a CD2 up to 420-430. CD2 wont fly nicely for him even with slight tail, turns over too much.

Edit: Hyzer flips to flat and just ride straight before fading with wind carry.
Edit: I am not at all familiar with what he is throwing, Latitude and/or DD.

The OAT and spin also explains a lot of forehand differences I see in people. I do many 200ft upshots with forehand P2's or an MD, where he would pick something a lot more stable. I know I have good touch with forehand approaches. My forehand drive doesnt reach alot past 350ft but short game is pretty solid with good spin and no flutter.

Yeah sounds like he has some torque. Take some video of his form and force him to throw some putters and mids. He should be able to throw mids 300+ at like 60% effort with that velocity, and if he works his way up while keeping clean form he should be pushing them 350+ without straining himself I would think.

Agreed and I think those two "types" are what we have here.

Always got watch out for this guy:

At this point I'll jump on the bandwagon and say OAT as well.
