DEAD TOSS (See Flat)

A Dead Toss (Also known as a Flat) is when you throw a bar object (such as a bottle, tin etc..) with no rotation.

It may have spin. Usually spin will help project the object but it can not have any rotation to be called a Dead Toss or Flat.This is a very helpful technique for working Flair because if you were to rotate a full bottle you would incur a spill.
