This thing is so flexible that if you hit the bottom of the basket hard enough it will get stuck in the basket.

Does that count???
Yup it counts! Never seen this before, though I did see one just balancing on the lip of the basket perfectly.

2: Putt with a slight anny if the basket is on a hill, or you want it to stick where you put it. Think of a helicopter....when the disc is coming in flat and level, it almost just floats in. Blowflies tend to have a LOT of float in their flight, so I throw it to utilize that. When I putt, I tend to relaese flat and level, and it will go straight, if I miss it does not end up landing on it's edge so my next putt should be close. Hope that makes some sense!
Perfect sense. I have played around with anhyzer putts for this, but not as much as I should have. May play around with that some more to see how consistently it sticks.

My soft challengers rarely roll but the Omega SS I used to throw never rolled

I either use my eco-disc ( rubber and hemp mix )for farther out...... or my Omega SSwithin 30'...... neither have an issue with rolling for me......
