A begins with the disc near the sideline. D1 puts on a line-trap force.
B sets up perpendicular to the sideline facing A, marked by D2.
C is the front of a vertical stack, or a isolation in the centre of the field.

Dave Trovell says:
Make sure you cut all the way to the sideline and back; any half-cuts are easy to cover and mess-up the timing of your partner.
This really works well near the endzone when C cuts for a swing and then goes down the line – but watch out for a poach from B.
