Remember: 2 things you need in a good hyzer flip disc
As a reminder, here are the two things you need in a good Hyzer Flip disc.
- Understability: Having an understable disc is the key for throwing and perfecting the Hyzer Flip. To start, you’re looking for a disc with about a -2 or a -3 turn rating. The more turn, the quicker it will flip over. Also, the slower the disc, the less turn you need to make the Hyzer Flip happen. You’ll see that most of these putter recommendations only have a -1 turn rating, but that’s okay because they don’t need to be thrown very hard to perform. You also want a disc with minimal fade on the backend – no more than a 2 fade rating. The point of the Hyzer Flip is to hyzer the disc and have it flip up to flat for a long, straight flight. A little fade on the end is almost impossible but we want to limit it as much as possible.
- Glide: glide isn’t the most important thing in the world for Hyzer Flips but I do recommend having a high glide rating if you’re looking for a good Hyzer Flip disc. You want your disc to be somewhere between 3 and 6 for putters.
Okay, enough of that stuff. Let’s check out all of the discs! Here’s my list of the 11 best Hyzer Flip discs.
11 best putters for hyzer flips
The Pure is an excellent stable to understable putt and approach disc that has the ability to excel at the Hyzer Flip. It’s also the most highly recommended putter for Hyzer Flips in the #discgolfcommunity by far. Even though it only has a -1 turn, discs that require much less power turn over much easier. That makes these discs pretty fun to throw. The Pure is a brilliant selection for a really tricky, short and narrow tunnel shot or something where you’ve got to “thread the needle,” with your disc. If that’s what you need, grab yourself a Pure here on InfiniteDiscs.com.
The Deputy has Judge-like similarities with a more understable flight pattern. This disc absolutely rocks as a putter but is equally as good for throwing, especially Hyzer Flips. The unique turn and fade combo of -1.5 and 0 can translate into super straight shots quite nicely. On top of that, break it out at the end of each hole and it will grab the chains almost every time you putt. Now that’s fun. Grab yourself one here on InfiniteDiscs.com.
The Tui? What is that? Um, a really great disc actually! I was fortunate enough to have gotten a Tui sent to me to review, and while I haven’t fully finished my review on it yet, I’ve got to say that this disc really surprised me. It’s fun to throw and turns over pretty well for only -1 turn. It gave a decently strong Hyzer Flip and then seemed to hold the line with little to no ending fade. Great disc. Grab one here on InfiniteDiscs.com.
This disc is Magic! No, seriously, it is. Whether you need it as a beginner disc, a versatile putter, or a super-straight-shot-shaping-Hyzer-Flip disc, the Magic will surely get the job done for you. Get yourself one here on InfiniteDiscs.com.
The Proxy is a fun, slightly understable putt and approach that can do well to improve your short range Hyzer Flip game. Similar to the Pure, the Proxy is a finesse disc that you’re going to use for really narrow tunnel shots and short range shots through impossible gaps. But if you can throw the Hyzer Flip, you can get this disc to hit those gaps and really help you stand out among the other players on the course. If that’s what you need, grab a Proxy here on InfiniteDiscs.com.
Streamline has stood out lately as a brand that is slowly earning its way into something super reputable. They keep putting out discs that are consistently scoring high marks with players and that are just great discs overall. The Pilot is no exception. It flies well as a putting putter, glides REALLY well, and can bang out your putts as well. This disc has decent turn and fade, plus high glide so I’d use this for a shot where you need something super straight and really long. Something where you need that glide to kick in and just let it sail for a couple hundred feet. Then you can turn around and let it help you chainbang the finishing shot for birdie. Grab a Pilot here on InfiniteDiscs.com.
I wouldn’t compare the Keystone to the Pure, with regards to Hyzer Flips, by any means. But the Keystone can have its own job. I would compare this to the Streamline Pilot in that it has the ability to crush a super straight Hyzer Flip with a ton of glide on the end. Whereas the Pure is more of a precision Hyzer Flip disc in my opinion. But I’ll leave that up to you. Either disc will Hyzer Flip just fine for you. Grab a Keystone here on InfiniteDiscs.com or get the Pure in the #1 pick section above.
The P Model US made a spot on this list, just as the D Model US and the M Model US made it onto my other lists for best Hyzer Flip distance drivers and mid-range discs. I didn’t put the F Model US on the best control drivers list because I just didn’t feel like the F Model US made the cut. But the P Model US is a very solid putt and approach disc that can easily fill the role as a Hyzer Flip putter. It’s got a subtle turn and fade and great glide. Grab one here on InfiniteDiscs.com.
The Omega from Millennium provides a lot of great things for a disc golfer: a firm putter, stability and consistency, straight flight, decent turn and fade, and an overall quality disc. If you want a Hyzer Flip disc that doesn’t move a whole lot, this could be it. Grab an Omega here on InfiniteDiscs.com.
So I’m very surprised that Discraft doesn’t have anything better in the understable putting department to fill in as a decent disc for Hyzer Flipping. I almost left this disc off the list. The problem: there really aren’t that many understable putters. So the last two discs on this list are almost fill in discs to get me to 11 total. But the APX can work fine as a Hyzer Flip disc if you get enough power behind it. I wouldn’t expect it to really turn over a whole lot so this might be something of a straight shot disc through trees or tight gaps. It won’t give you a lot of action, but hey, that’s what we need in our game sometimes, right? Grab an APX here on InfiniteDiscs.com.
Last but not least on this list is the Colt. A solid, understable choice of disc from Innova and a disc that can still get you a nice little Hyzer Flip if you don’t put too much of a hyzer on your throw. The turn and fade on the Colt are very subtle so you won’t get a lot of action altogether on it but it will get the job done and double as a good, flat putter. Grab a Colt here on InfiniteDiscs.com.
