How in the H.E. Double Hockey Sticks, do you throw a big sidearm / forehand anhyzer?!?!
At my home course there are a few holes that require a long and high dog-leg turn that requires me to throw a sidearm "anny" (sp?). Maybe 2 out of 10 times I throw it ok, the other 8 turn into a bad roller.

Depends on your level of snap/power I suppose. For me on a high long anny (say 330+), I thow from a position with a little higher arcing swing (almost halfway between a Tommy and a forehand) than my normal forehand shot, I'll use a really overstable disc, like an Xcaliber/max/pred/spirit and flip with a lot more air under the path than a normal forehand shot as well. By the time the disc fights out of the anny generally the flight is over and it drops. Being accurate on a shot like this is only going to come with repetition. Open field testing is a great option here, less likely to spend all day looking for the misses too.
Easy, learn to throw backhand.
i'll agree with matt, me being able to throw both ways, just depends on the disc I use. me being a strong arm side armer I have to use a destroyer or xcalliber....mine tend to anny out if I dont...but if i want a good side arm anny I use discs like champ leopards, champ sidewinders, ROCS and FLX Buzz...great anny side arm discs
Hi Mdub,
I primarily use a forehand and my home course has a couple of anhyzer shots on it. Obviously learning a backhand would help. A lot of it depends on your level of power, the release of your arm angle, snap, etc. I have found the best way for ME to consistently throw a long forehand anhyzer is to use my Surge or Wraith keep it flat, find a line a bit higher than usual and throw harder than I normally do (but not my hardest). If you're rolling them you are throwing too hard or your disc is too understable. If they stay flat or go right you're throwing too soft. Look for the in between. Good luck!
