A modified Post route in which the receiver runs deep down field, as though executing a Fly (Up) pattern, then cuts toward midfield at a 45 degree angle. The cut usually occurs 15-25 yards down field. This can be used to shake a cornerback playing man coverage who has already committed to the deep fly, but it is most commonly used as a means of finding a hole between the safeties in a Cover 2 defense. The pass strength of the quarterback is key in the latter case, lest one of the safeties jump the route and intercept the pass before it arrives.
