I agree not too bad at all. And after you lose that upper mid section you'll throw further as well due to being able to bring the disc in closer to your core ,etc. Hey... I'm STILL a big guy after...

Keep in mind the ratio to "internet distance to actual game distance" is around 175ft, so if someone says they can drive 600 that usually means on a typical day they're probably driving around 425,...

yah, that last video looks like you're energy level would die out after 9 holes or so. Looks like you're really "power throwing" the hell out of the disc. Totally agree with SW. (Love his vids,...
