yeah I thought scoobie was when a disc scoots up towards the basket almost like it is rocking back and forth.
Is Helix correct ? I thought a Helix is an overhand thumber throw that spirals in a circular or twisting motion as it travels forward.
You know like a roller coaster doing a twisty flip.
Like a Helix of a D.N.A. strand.
Look at the image on this disc, it shows an S shaped shot. That where I got the term Helix from. The only time I have seen a disc spiral overhand was the epic, and I just called that shot BS lol
Rim- The part of the disc you grip.
Flite Plate/Wing- The top part of the disc
Flash- Excess material left on the edges of a disc during the molding process
Domey- The flight plate of the disc having a more pronounced buldge
Thumbtrac- The disc (usually putters) has a gripping surface or grove on the outer upper edge of the flight plate.
I have seen people throw the "scooby" and have it land upside down on its top plate. It doesn't always slide however. Maybe some people have a different term for this shot. I refer to it as a scooby.
A shank is well... a shank.
