The video where Paul and Simon swapped bags was pretty epic too.

My favorite little "longtime buds ribbing each other" moment is when Simon starts talking about using spike hyzers for distance control. Paul just smiles and shakes his head knowingly and disapprovingly. It's like he's just starting to realize what the rest of his round will be like.


On-topic: one of the issues solving the throw "scaling" problem for shorter distances is keeping the whole chain intact over the smaller shift and range of motion. You can see pros doing it clearly in Overthrow's Lizotte or Gibson montages.

I'm finding that the Door Frame Drills [1 2 3] are extremely useful for training this scaling. Find the appropriate backswing height where you find leverage, then load yourself by striding past the door frame to achieve however whatever size weight shift you need for the throw. The frame helps teach your whole body the correct scaling for the distance and posture for the backswing load for any given weight shift since it won't move. They're doing the same thing by "leaving the disc behind."

But hyzers are actually a really good way to control your distance.
It's easier to control where the disc apexes and fades in.
Vs throwing straight at the basket trying to control a whole lot more things at once.

Both shots are effective, and both has their pros and cons.
So I choose appropriately to the situation as well.

The error on a hyzer coming in is going to be far different than a shot at the basket with, lets say no fade.
It could skip 50-80 passed.
It could stop early and not skip at all.

*shrugs*

I think a lot of it comes down to the player type here, and choosing whats right for the situation.
As well as how well your short game control is for the day.

So I'd not hardline on "hyzer isnt the right shot" but.. yeah, I think ya'll get it.
