POW!
Haha, I'm so glad I found this forum. My friend does the too fast disc FH-technique. Now I just have to get good enough to beat him.

Throws McBeth Destroyer/Champ XCal/whatever crazy OS on wobbly anhyzer, to flex back and save the day for a 300' shot. The best is when it's windy and these shots just get absolutely punished into oblivion.
I encounter this all the time. It's really puzzling because I have basically no forehand distance, yet I can forehand mids and putters way better than our local dedicated forehand specialists.

To me it's called being a torque-monkey, to them it's called big forehand snap.

Dude actually said this to me once. (context: I was playing solo and so was he, we ended up on the same hole and played it together, He asked some questions after seeing my sweet throw SOooo we were talking and I said "What do you throw?" I looked and I said, I highly recommend getting slower discs, like a midrange and a putter)

He says

"I got this Boss....is a Boss a midrange?"


No lie....totally serious. I laughed out loud and explained the width of the rims, showed him a Buzzz and a Pa3 to explain mids and putter then showed a Teebird to show a fairway. I recommended him a Sidewinder , He's still putting Bosses I'm sure

It's not anything anyone said but; Me and my wife had to play through another couple on the course the other day. While we were behind them though we noticed the woman was carrying probably more discs than me and my wife combined in a large backpack bag. I was eager to see how well she played, it's not often I see women playing that are any good, besides my wife.

So she gets up to the teepad, already I see trouble brewing, and does that typical nose up, no power, super hyzer, total noob 60 foot throw with a driver type disc...

Never assume someone knows how to play by the amount of discs they carry.

The funny thing is I just recently heard this same thing from a 850-900 level player. Only he had too much snap for a Nuke OS. It was clear to me that backhand was his strength, not forehand.

This one guy who plays with us often gets hyzer, anhyzer mixed up, along with turnover. Ive tried to correct him, but have given up at this point. I love when he yells great turnover, when you've just crushed a big hyzer to the left...lol
