It's backhand throw because your arm motion is lead by the back of your hand regardless whether the top of the disc for a righthander points left for the suitcase or right for the grenade.
a "flick" generally refers to a forehand shot. not sure if there is any other major difference.
a "spike hyzer" is when you throw and overstable disc extremely high and extremely hyzer. this is effective for shorter shots that require pinpoint accuracy (like a green that is on an island or for ob).
"flex" (and correct me if i'm wrong) is basically just an "s" shot, with the flex being the point when the disc stops it's "turn" and begins to "fade".
"tomahawks" can also be referred to as "tommys" or even "upd's" which means "upside down's".
"thumbers" are just thumbers :)

my question is, is there a name for a thumber skip or tommy skip (you know, when you throw a low or parallel to the ground thumber that skips of it's back and squibbles to the left or right?)?

You're absolutely correct. I was just trying to differentiate between the "suitcase" and a normal across the body knife hyzer (when I say "knife hyzer" I mean the same thing as Dr. Zee's "spike" hyzer).
Hyzer flip or hyzer flip up- usually refers to throwing a beat up or understable disc on a hyzer line, having it flip flat and finish to the right.

Roller - throwing a disc with good spin or snap and having it stand up on the ground and rolling towards the basket.

scooby- throwing the disc upside down having it slide on the face of the disc.

skip shot - throwing a disc hyzer angle for the purpose of skipping it off the ground.

Ace - A hole-in-one.
Par - The average number of throws for an experienced player to complete a hole. Amateur par varies, pro par is generally three on any given hole. This tradition started mostly out of convenience; it makes scorekeeping much more simple.

Birdie - Completing a hole at one under par.

Tee Pad - A designated area where players begin each hole. Also known as a tee box.

Lie - The spot where a disc lands and where the next shot is taken from.

Sandbagger - A tournament player who competes in a division below his or her skill level.

Pancake - An overhand shot thrown with considerably less power, resulting in a 90 degree rotation from vertical. The disc generally lands face down.

Falling Putt - Failure to demonstrate full balance behind the mini marker while putting. Players cannot step on or in front of the mini marker when putting within 10 meters until demonstrating full balance.
