[QUOTE=SonicGuy;3487927]One can not throw with slight hyzer. One either has hyzer, or does not. You can’t acquire hyzer. You can’t go pick hyzer up at the market.[/I]

I don't think I've ever supported anything SonicGuy has ever said before, but this is a valiant deep-cut quote that may not be the most graceful, but I'll respect it.

This is why we can't have nice things.

A really interesting discussion/talking point, and it's already badly derailed

OH, I'm not derailing, OK, being technical I see. So you are telling me that there’s “no difference” in what you call a disc released at on an angle with 10° of Hyzer, versus that released with 45° of Hyzer vs a steep spike angle which might be 60°+ of Hyzer? I see now. By the way, isn’t technically Hyzer supposed to be capitalized as well? Wasn’t it the name of the guy who utilized the shot extensively back in the (Frisbee®) day?

When chainstars are new they catch pretty well. Part of the issues with them is that they don't age as well as the new championship level baskets.

Great video presentation. Watching all those missed putts was strangely amusing!

After years and years of procrastinating, I finally decided to buy a high end basket for home use at the beginning of this season. It was an Innova Pro 28, which is my overall favorite.

Part of my decision making process centered around baskets I throw most regularly around the area I live. Presumably, it does me little good to learn the catching anatomy of a Gateway Titan or Chainstar if I only throw on them once in a blue moon, ect

Thanks! I know I don't have a super dynamic voice presentation, I'm an engineer and not an announcer.. I don't think I'll land on Jomez anytime soon.

But this study was begging to be done for years now.

Also! I'd suggest anyone do exactly like I did, just on Two baskets, and see if THEIR putting style has similar results, if they align with the trend. Takes about 45 minutes if you're doing video, about a half hour total if just counting misses on paper.

I will do this at Elver with new Mach Vs vs the new DISCatchers.

I predict DISCatchers win in in a blowout.

I have at least one of each of the following around the farm: Mach 3, Mach 1 modified with inner chains, Discatcher 28, Discatcher Sport, T1 and T3- might have a Mach 5 too but may have loaned it out. I am admittedly kind of fascinated with seeing what sort of info we can crowdsource on this. Will give it a try some time next week.
