I've known guys to do this throw with some effectiveness.
Hey, if it works for you, do it.
Anybody on here that doesn't like it, doesn't have to use it.
It's your name on your scorecard.
Have fun whatever way you throw!!

So I'm a little embarrassed by this... In my mind I was doing one thing, but on video, I am doing it differently.

Here's a video my daughter shot for me just a little bit ago. I apologize if the angles aren't great. I wanted a shot along the street as well as one where I have to go under a low hanging tree.

But what I realized while compiling the video is that I don't really throw it as underhand as I thought. My upper arm is tucked way closer to my chest than a normal sidearm, but I'm still getting about a 90 degree angle at the elbow when in my mind, my elbow was almost fully extended like a bowler. No wonder you couldn't picture the throw in your head, my own head was all messed up!

Anyway, here's the video. I guess maybe it's not so unorthodox after all... not great textbook form, but nowhere near as extreme as I thought.



Oh and you might need to be in full screen to see the disc, I apologize for going lower resolution

looks like a beautiful hyzerflip to me

if it doesn't hurt and you can do it consistently, i don't see a reason not to use it

Yeah looks like a nice little FH hyzer flip upshot. I'm all about the FH upshots too but I more pop putters closer to flat...whatever works for you is the name of the game in upshots.

My Dad does almost the same except way smother and with more of the throwing arm out at begging with a tuck in because he threw toy discs as a kid this way as it was easier for him to throw the disc straight and not of to the right. My dad even did this with an Aerobie flying ring the old 1980's to early 1990's one with metal in the rim.

I got hit in the neck with the Aerobie one time as my dad threw the ring to me with that forehand flick style.

Feel ain't real - SW22

Your FH is what I would call orthodox for a forehand. Hyzer flipping an understable disc, is very common - but, most players prefer an OS disc that requires less finesse. Your shot would be extra tough in a windy situation.

That said, if you were to grab a Firebird - and throw that shot high and left (on a knife hyzer), you'd be much closer to a horse-shoes style lob. That shot is less orthodox, mainly because if the ground is hard and sloped, you can get some vicious roll-aways.
