That's how I always understood it. You need to have both high rate of spin and a high exit velocity so the disc is still traveling with enough speed to start turning as the spin slows down.

James was playing my home course in Kerava, Finland last summer while touring with Nate Perkins. Told him (partly to egg him on) that #3 is a total forehand hole. 380 feet straight, then a curve to the left, little bit uphill at the end. Big slope right to left all the way, so if you get any fade on your RHBH, you might go ways off fairway. Of course James proceeded to park it with an Aviar. Also on hole #5 he got caught up on the drive, then threw the highest shot I probably ever have seen, over everything, with an Aviar. He is about 150ft out, I tell him if you get it Ill by one of your tour discs. Throws it in of course. All three shots with an Aviar. Now you dont know the hole but you got to throw a huge S-curve RHBH and land it perfectly to set up the uphill tunnel shot. I have seen pros play the Beast at European Open several times and all that jazz but those Aviar shots are the most amazing disc golf shots I have ever seen, by far.

I liked this, nothing crazy. No “I got this from a friend in 2007” or OOP stuff. Also didn’t seem like he was pushing some new or unpopular mold like some pros seem to. The Everyman’s bag
