If I've got some long grass or a backstop, KC Aviar/Champ Roc/Firebird on a hyzer. If it needs to hit and stick I'm going straight at it with a P1x/beat McPro Roc3/Patriot and aiming for a spot in front of the basket.

Yeh, hyzer only if the shot calls for it. No need to be hyzering everything in, a fade shot can be more effective if trying to work it in towards basket, or concerned about getting range correct.

Unless it's some situational / get out of trouble shot... I'm using the Harp on every shot within 265'. I have my beat BT Hard Harp for straight, anny, and smooth hyzer shots...my BT Medium for more stable, hit and stick, hyzer shots...and a VIP for big OS hyzer lines or FH S shots. Haven't second guessed a shot within this range since bagging my Harps.

Now of only I can get my ddistance drivers under control. Lol

its appealing but much more inconsistent really given different variables. I don't even have to think about throwing a short hyzer or longer spike hyzer at the basket. No chance really to fly by and doesn't matter the ground, condition etc that shot is always the most consistent. Headwinds, small green, power control the list goes on and on and on. Its why you see top level pros throw a hyzer shot 99% of the time its possible.

Either RHFH Star Firebird or RHBH Wizard, depending how I'm feeling that day, out to about 150'.

My go to is a hyzer with a wizard, it's a shot I'm really comfortable with and that confidence helps me throw without overthinking.

Slight hyzer an envy for anything less than 200ft. The only time I go straight at it on a wide open shot is if there's a really strong right to left wind. In that case I'll hyzerflip a midrange or a teebird.

I don't understand this hyzer love. I'd anny before doing that. In fact, that's what I do when just far enough to not be able to putt.
