"In a 1:30 wind I would definitely go with a hyzer shot. The key is to keep it low and start it quite a bit out to the right as the wind will push it. Maybe go with something like a Predator and throw it flat and quite a bit to the right. That might…"

"The Innova max is another great headwind disc. Love that disc and throw it a lot. Very dependable and all u need to do is throw it flat and it will fly straight w a sharp fade."

Ghost replied to Diesel Dan's discussion Wind strategy
"Having a Firebird/Pred/XXX in the bag is a good thing.  Those discs will handle pretty much any wind you throw at it.  Hell, I sidearm my FB into a headwind.  That kind of dependability is invaluable on the course."

Rescue replied to Diesel Dan's discussion Wind strategy
"Keep the nose down at all times is key. Other than tail winds, keep the disc low. Crosswinds adjust your aim point slightly in the direction of the crosswind. Left crosswind, aim a little left of your target point and vise versa for a right…"

David Sauls replied to Diesel Dan's discussion Wind strategy
"Worst for me, as a RHBH thrower, is a wind coming from 1:30 (headwind, and right-to-left).  If the disc starts to turnover, it then turns over hard.  If it starts to hyzer out, the wind gets under it and blows it left.  And I'm…"

Nate Nasty replied to Diesel Dan's discussion Wind strategy
"side wind... I have never heard anyone try to explain this. If there is any head or tail wind with your side wind, it messes up any simple approach adjusting to the wind. However, it seems like a left to right wind effects a rhbh throw, just a…"

"For tailwinds i try to throw higher, and use a lighter disc that is under stable. For headwinds take a little off your throw."

David Sauls replied to Diesel Dan's discussion Wind strategy
"Along the same lines: Putting--- Headwind: nose down. Crosswinds: tilt disc so wind hits top, doesn't get underneath. STRATEGY (1) Be very accurate with upshots.  Try to put disc under basket to maximize drop-in putts, thus minimize…"

Jim Coonradt replied to Diesel Dan's discussion Wind strategy
"Many times it is best to keep a disc as flat as possible in the wind. When you present a surface to the wind it will act on that surface. So that means you should definitely keep the nose down into a headwind. Same for tailwind because if you let…"
