That having been said, I agree with the pedants who insist that hyzer/anhyzer terminology should be used in reference to release angle, and that disc flight is more properly described using other terms (e.g. flip, fade, turn).

I also agree with the nihilists who point out that "hyzer" and "anhyzer" will continue to be applied to flight paths anyway.
Well, it's not so much that I want to be pedantic. For instance, I threw a hyzer-flip today that finished by turning right (flip up to flat, then turn over and no leftward fade).

Was that an anhyzer? Don't think so, totally different line

Sorry, I'm just not there with ya on this one. I think Hyzer is a good word to describe both flight path (a spike hyzer shot, a gentle hyzer, a hyzer flip, etc.) and a release angle ("she released that disc with too much hyzer", "that disc is so understable that no amount of hyzer can keep it from turning over", etc.)
This will be my last pedantic post on this topic...in this thread...for now

Spike hyzer = throw with a hyzer release thrown very high
Gentle hyzer = thrown with mild degree of hyzer
Hyzer flip = Thrown with any degree of hyzer, either flips up to flat, or over (Giving us the hyzer-flip turnover)

All are referencing release angle, IMO

So, there may not be a definitive definition for hyzer. Therefore, among the other explanations that have already been used, I will choose to also define it as any conversation that veers off topic by some degree due to users' application of divergent dialogue.



I rather like hyzering conversations by the way.
