A handler, A, starts with the disc near the sideline, marked by D1. A cutter, B, stands 5-10m downfield and in the middle of the width of the field, facing A.
D1 > A > B
- D1 checks the disc in, marking towards the cutter
- B cuts away in a straight line towards the endzone
- A throws diagonally across the field, aiming for a position a few metres to the back side of the cutter
A rarely used option which is more difficult to execute than it looks; be sure to control the sit and curve of the disc as accuracy is vital
