Revolver, US Open 2015

In this clip, we see Revolver start in a horizontal stack on the brick. After breaking the mark, they move down the break side of the field in a side stack, scoring in flow utilising a series of isolated cutters. Note that the transition to side stack is a natural process caused by offensive players moving away from the disc, therefore ensuring that as the disc moves down one side of the field, the players are stacked up on the other.
