Default Can someone explain what I did here.



I threw the shot RHBH from a standstill

Ok i this was at hole 18 jordan creek, allentown pa to anyone who knows the hole.

I was was behind the tree and threw a very beat in pro beast at "/" angle[not at steep but felt like that was the angle], i was trying to spike hyzer the disc into the green.

the flight path did whats highlighted in red.

[conditions]
There was no wind
Did not hit a tree to redirect shot
after the water the disc was flat and gliding, finished straight no fade or fade so minimal i could not tell.


The length of the shot was around 250-300f when it landed.

What happened and what can I do to recreate this shot, I have tried numerous times and nothing comes close.

Try it with slower, understable discs.

You may have torqued it over (OAT) and ended up with a hyzer flip rather than the spike hyzer you wanted or "gotten a hold" of it (had a better throw than normal) and the extra speed and nose down helped it flip.

It just sounds like you threw an understable disc on a spike hyzer with the disc slightly turned away from your body, exposing bottom of the flight plate to your line. This causes drag on the bottom of the disc allowing it to turn early while it's flipping up flat. Once the disc has made it's turn it will be flat and flying dead straight within it's current trajectory and may even start turning over right (kinda like what your pic is showing). You need a lot of height to successfully pull off this shot, but once you've mastered it, it can result in some really cool lines! I usually show people how to do it with my Avenger SS or Meteor.

I just got back from Jordan and had the same shot, not sure what you did. I put a good snap on a Fuse for a lay up.

I've gotten this flight path from really beat understable discs before. It's very fun to throw. You just release on a hyzer with good snap and they will start out with the hyzer line tracking left then eventually flip and turn at the end.

This is the shot I try to make when a fairway bends left and then goes straight for a long time. Instead of throwing an overstable disc and letting it hyzer/crash in the end, you can take a really understable disc and throw it on a hyzer and try to time it so that it tracks left then flips up straight (but in this case straight is going left) and watch it track left forever.

How high did you throw it? I can get this flight out of a really beat DX valk that I have if I throw it really really high on a very steep hyzer line. I've always figured that it gains speed as it comes back down (ie falls) and that's what causes it to turn over.

I was trying to get over the tree line but the disc had so much crap on it and turned away from accelerating upward and shot to the left, maybe 80feet? At first i thought it was some crazy air bounce.
