The "flippy" named by my son at four years old.

Hold the disc like a turbo but upsidedown and flip it end over end like a basketball.

On a side note, all the focus you have given to no low putts might be more useful if it were focused on what you want instead of what you are trying to avoid.

Dead center chains!

I was taking some putts with my son before a round and a few new players made their way to the basket. One of the players had missed a 12 footer. My five year old ,stepping to his lie, tells the guy, "you should try a flippy". Slammed the chains like a butterfly, good times. The look on dudes face was priceless, getting a lesson from a five year old, he was a bit embarrassed but was a good sport about it. The butterfly, for me, is a flippy.

Inverted Sidearm ~ forehand grip, disc upside down, backhand arm motion. the disc spikes very quickly. Like a grenade, but with the sidearm grip. Is this already called something?

Agreed. Your brain does not focus on negative statements: "No" "Do not" etc. If you think "No Low Putt" as you're putting, your brain reacts to "Low Putt."

Your both wrong. Its called the Knuckle Putt. The harder you throw it, the crazier the flight path. ;)

I've been perfecting "The Heisman" putt. It's difficult because you have to have your left foot behind the marker and fall backward when you release your pitch/flip/butterfly-type shot while posing as Mark Ingram.

Go out in a field and experiment with runups and throwing techniques. Try things that you think probably won't help.

And watch people who can throw far and see what they are doing, and ask them for tips.

The best advice I can give on throwing further is ask Lance "Weenie Arm." He will tell you to learn to throw less stable discs for more distance, leading to, which I'm suprised no one has mentioned, the HELIX.

Do you hold the "Butterfly" upside down? I have seen people use it holding it like a turbo, but I have never seen anyone doing "flippy's" (holding the disc upside down and throwing a "Butterfly"). Could be me, because I have not seen very many people doing "Butterfly" putts before!

It's called a scoober. (mentioned in the first post as a "scooby")

Ok I was out practicing my Drives across a field today and I was pondering Ideas about why we choose certain drivers and why so many different players vary with what they deem as the best driver:
We know about different styles of throws but I was thinking about how many different players vary when it comes to the amount of SNAP they put on a disc. Here an idea I have to explain why I choose my disc and maybe this will just be interesting to read, or perhaps help some players choose a good driver for the.???
For this exercise lest put “Snap” into a range.
Say a Valkyrie/Sidewinder would be 1 (least) and a Teebird / Tracker would be about 5, and a destroyer / Force would be about 7-8 and then a Boss 8, a Firebird/Max/Predator would be 10.
If you can SNAP a 10 Disc then Your name is Robbie Bratten, He can snap a drive with all his strength and a predator will fly strait for him. He has so much snap he can actually make a Pred anny when he release it strait. That’s definitely more snap than I have. Now people all differ in how much snapo they have. Some of my friends have to tape finger tips as they are snapping very hard with tight grips. And some guys just realease disc with spin and don’t snap so hard as they have loose grips. I would say im in the middle as I have to chalk or rub dirt on finger tips to get a smooth release and not hurt my fingers, my grip is pretty hard.
I would put my SNAP level at about a 7. To me I Snap hard and I like to released very Strait or flat. I can flip a 175 teebird If I put all my snap into a shot, where Robbie Bratten could snap over a Pred if he threw with same strength. So im learning why I love my certain drivers and others don’t have the same opinion. For me I am practicing with Champion Boss’s, Champion Destroyers, Star Destroyers, Pro Destroyers, ESP NUKES.
I am tweaking my shots and learning which is the best distance driver for My SNAP. I think a beat in Champion Destroyer ranges in the 7, 6.1/2 range if its well beat in. So I think my SNAP is around a 6-7 depending on how hard I throw. I’m getting my Snap ranges from looking at the Stability chart from Marshal Streets Disc Golf Chart. So for me If a Destroyer beats in and becomes a little less over stable then it becomes a perfect SNAP ranger for my distance shots with good control. The Boss’s are to over stable so my best Snap can’t throw them Strait and they just go left. I am liking the Nukes as their Snap range is a little less than the destroyer so they are flying very well for me.
I just thought it was cool to put these drivers in a Snap range. I know a lot of guys differ with their amount of SNAP. Some Hyzer flip, some release flat. And guys like Robbie can release hyzer and flip anny a predator….anyways I know this is long but it was interesting to my brain.

trying to interpret that post made my head hurt. i'm thinking your "snap" ratings are just stability ratings, but maybe i misunderstood what you were saying. glad you had fun playing with robbie last weekend, he throws far.
