Is this sort of what we're talking about here?
I use Pre-Barry Champion Beasts for that shot^. Back to the topic... if I understand off-axis torque correctly, I use it when throwing my Buzzz on anny lines. I prefer to throw flat so I don't throw anhyzer very often, I will throw a turnover shot with a Mamba, ESP XL (beat), or Meteor.

Another way to look at intentional oat would be that you are throwing 2 different angles in one throw... You cannot throw a flat line tight 350' anhyzer shot without throwing 2 angles or intentional oat as no disc will carry straight, then right that far with just a anhyzer release, you have to flip it up without rolling your whole body over and keeping it hyzer/flat to get any distance...

I watch many players stuggle with this concept as they want to throw right so they release anhyzer, crank the disc and it goes wayyyy right 2x as far as it did forward-- they only threw one angle and thats where it went, likely with OAT on top of it so it realllllllly burns right.

I put intentional OAT on my champion spider on a hyzer release to get a straight wooded shot which doesn't fade.

This and pretty much everything else he said
