In addition, I think it's easier to then tweak a flat shot into varying degrees of hyzer and anhyzer angles if you want to manipulate the discs even more.
So I should stick with the flat shot?

I would suggest two things:

1. Limit the number of discs you throw when learning. Neutral putter, neutral mid, neutral fairway. Get a few of each so you can replicate throws with the same disc. Throw those same discs over and over again so you learn how they fly.

2. Learn to throw those discs on different angles. Throw three hyzers in a row. Throw three annies in a row. Throw three flat shots in a row. Try to get as consistent as possible with each angle. And see what works best for you.

A truly flat shot is probably the most difficult shot to throw in disc golf. A little off either way and the results can be quite different. That is why most people default to either slight hyzer or slight anny (flex shot) for their default.

Putters are great when learning to throw. Putters do what you tell them, for better or for worse, so they give you really good feedback (except about nose angle, but that was not your question).

Good luck!

No!!
You want to throw a flat shot but the release should not be flat all the time. To your original question do not release flat.

solid advice here. honestly limiting discs to 5 or fewer will really help your game when learning.

Currently I have a few Buzzz, Mantis, and Focus. I also have some understable stuff like Sting and Heat along with a Comet.

Ok so I want to have a hyzer finish. I have basically been trying to finish all my throws flat.

Not sure about hyzer "finish". I was talking about release. How you finish is after you release the disc.

Ok so the release shouldn't be flat but finish could be.

What is finish? I am not understanding.
Just release it naturally with a slight hyzer release and don't worry about the finish.

One thing newer players do that want to learn is over think it, you're getting to that point.

This describes rolling your wrist, that's a bad habit I have sometime. You don't want to do that.
Hyzer release and follow thru the same, flat release and follow thru the same, an-hyzer release and follow thru the same.
