A throw that takes smooth forward moment, and tons of snap. Relies on glide and stabilizing spin to make a disc go where you want. Usually it's with a slow, stable to understable disc that is thrown with a low amount of velocity.

A short 100' upshot with a forehand around a corner is straightforward, getting a backhand to float up and take a gentle right turn to pan out at the basket would be an example of a touch shot.

I seriously throw a polecat.

Slow, floaty, accurate disc.

86 Softie isn't a lid, but it's a touch disc. It's OOP, though.

I use a Lat64 Fuse for this shot. Lately I have been just throwing a fh hyzer with a driver though because the Fuse seems to fly too far most times. It is still a great disc though and can really kill this type of throw but requires serious control.

yeah a fuse is not a true "touch" shot

I mean a putter (challenger, aviar, magnet) at minimum can be a touch disc.

but a mid does not have the glide and its too fast.


I mean we are talking about birdies and pole cats and 86 softies.
