Taking your game to the next level includes learning new throws. Everyone knows the backhand. Most players even know the forehand. But there are other throws like thumbers, hammers, and rollers that allow you to elevate your game. Thumbers are thrown overhead with you thumb underneath the disc’s rim. A hammer is thrown the same way with your index finger underneath the disc’s rim. A roller is a disc that turns quickly and begins to roll as it hits the ground. A roller generally uses the roll for the majority of the shot’s distance. For other shot types, check out our glossary of terms here on our website.
