What are the alternative throws and how are they different from each other?
There are alternative throwing options that can sometimes yield better results (greater distance, accuracy, and more).
Hold the disc upside down and throw like you would if you were throwing a backhand. This throw is used mostly on downhill shots, but can also be used with a high arc to go over an obstacle
Hatchet or Tomahawk: Throw the disc as if you are throwing sidearm, but use an overhead motion instead
Turbo-Putt:Grip a putter disc with each fingertip. With palm up and fingers spread, rest putter on your thumb, with 4 fingers on the backside of the rim. When throwing the disc towards the target, add spin by turning your wrist. This throw is known to be accurate but has a limited range most of the time
Thumber:Hold the disc as if you are going to throw it in an overhand motion, overhead throw similar to Tomahawk but keep your thumb on the underside of the disc
Roller:This can be thrown forehand or backhand. Meant to roll on the ground, this throw gets the disc to stay in motion for long distances
