I havent been playing for that long but i would use my Star Dart or my Star Marino Roc thats well broken in, it all depends on how the wind is affecting my shot. If there isnt any wind or it is at my back i like to throw the Dart, it just seems to be more graceful in the air and stops where it lands, even if I throw anhyzer and it doesnt flatten out it will usually stay but and not get a nasy roll out. If the wind is against me, well ill Roc it up
Being an old Frisbee player, I prefer a line drive with a soft understable putter.
Straight at it!!!! Depending on obstacles of course!!!! I always throw at it!!!!
Depends on how im playing, if im putting good that day ill go right at it with a putter and give it a shot. If not ill hyzer a mid and land safely within the circle.
I go right at the basket in that situation. But if it's far enough to where my putter might start turning before it gets near the basket I might throw it slightly to the left of the basket (I'm LHBH). Really depends though
I throw my Super Roc straight at it from 200' and in.
As with many shots, it's what works best for you, which always feels like a cop-out of an answer, but hey.
When I'm for sure going for the upshot, I throw a nice easy hyzer with a beat D-Zone. The hyzer has just always felt more natural and consistent to me.
Do you throw it straight and flat or with nose up? I've recently noticed a lot of guys throwing straight w/ nose up and the disc just stays in the air forever and stalls right at the basket. Beautiful and effortless looking shot, but I haven't been able to duplicate it.
I learned playing catch with a Frisbee, slightly with nose up. Air bounce like for the stall.
gotta factor in wind, and is there any obstacles behind the basket? soft dirt around basket or thick grass? If not and if no wind.. I would throw straight and flat and low.
