Hyzer and Anhyzer disc golf throws
The Hyzer and Anhyzer throws are two of many techniques in disc golf where you force the disc to go in a different flight path than the disc specializations specify the disc would normally go if you were to throw the disc at a neutral angle.
These throws are thrown at an angle that makes the disc go extra-wide or to make the flight path elevated without having a shaky disc.
Hyzer and Anhyzer throws are super effective to get around obstacles that might present themselves throughout the course.
Having these two throws down is definitely gonna up your game and is something everyone should learn to get past the trickier sections that many disc golf courses might have.
In the pictures below I will illustrate the different angles.
Neutral, Hyzer and Anhyzer
Releasing the disc in this angle will be a hyzer throw.
Releasing the disc in this angle will be a anhyzer throw.
What are they used for?
Hyzer and Anhyzer throws are usually used to get around obstacles around the course but can also be used to make your disc go longer distances than it would with the same power at a Neutral angle.
This is done by having an angle on your disc that is opposite of what the Turn of the disc indicates.
In short: An overstable disc should be thrown with a Anhyzer angle and an understable disc should be thrown with a hyzer angle to get maximum distance.
