New-ish to the sport, and I find myself throwing thumbers and tomahawks more and more. There's lot's of pine trees in my neck of the woods, and there is nothing better than a ninja s-curve through the lot. Seems almost easy to throw accurately under 150 ft.

If anyone wants to learn how to throw an overhead shot should consult Brian Schweberger. I believe he is the best overhead thrower around.

i may not be the strongest overhander, but i love using it to lay myself up there and curling the disc around a group of trees!

My fav is thumbers. I'm just starting to use the tomahawk some now.

I can usually if I want it to go more left just turn my body more left with thumbers, they are just so comfortable in my hand.

I use tomahawks and thumbers all the time and love them! Such a fun shot to watch and very safe if you can develop control!

There are some holes that I drive with a thumber, like 15 at Grand Woods, and I use it for an upshot when needed. On hole 6 long tee at J-Bird's I made a 200 foot plus thumber deuce (field ace) with a 172 gram champion monster.
