I think you'll find that You'll get a lot of really generic advice without being any more specific than that. How "great" is your distance (i.e. how far can you throw each disc), how accurately have...

Sometimes you have to read between the lines a bit. When you have two, very similar discs the manufacturer has to make some sort of distinction between them in the flight numbers otherwise there...

That's my vote, too.

The first thing that came to mind was the Turbo Putt. It's existence prompted the PDGA to change the rules, so it is probably the most "game-changing" disc in the last 10...

I don't agree with that. Slower discs tend to require more height to go farther and are easier to throw higher and nose down. Mids and putters will require more than 15' to get the most distance...

At <100', no matter what I throw it will be powered down unless it's a really big hyzer.

For me shots like that fall in the "trick" category. "Normal" technique and disc selection rules don't...

It helps if you think of the rotation (spin) in terms of linear vectors. When a disc is spinning you can represent the velocity at any point on the edge of the disc as a vector tangential to that...

The easiest way is to build your throw from the hit back. Start by throwing from a stand still. Once you get that, add one step. Once you get that add another and so on until you're back to your...

One with an object that has torque components in more than one Cartesian direction? Every video of something spinning is like that if you define your axes right. Take your pick.

Now where's my...

They can be whatever we want, and we want to throw about an axis that doesn't cause wobble. That's why I'm defining the "on" axis that way. We're talking about up to and at release. It's obvious...

I'm asking you. Assume the z axis in the output is the axis perpendicular to the flight plate. If the axis of rotation can only have components in one axis, which axis will it show as having torque...

A couple reasons.

First, you don't always see the wobble and the disc wobbling isn't really the problem. The problem many times is that the disc turns over too much.

Second, what do you say...

You're getting hung up on how we define our axis.

The TL, JLS or XL would be my suggestions for discs that are actually better than the one you lost. The...

Yeah, the disc pivots out of your hand about a point that isn't the center of the disc, but I haven't really though about the consequences of that. Quite frankly, it doesn't matter when it comes to...

There is rotational inertia, just like there's rotational inertia that keep the disc spinning. If you spin a disc about the axis parallel the disc flight (the "roll" axis) the disc will barrel roll....

I'm not sure I understand that picture. In "normal" Cartesian coordinates (x, y and z axes) all of the axes are perpendicular to each other. The green line is already off axis.

Yeah, for wobble free spin all of the torque is about the axis orthogonal to and through the center of the flight plate.

It's 1 and 3, which are the same. I don't know why you think having a torque component on two or three axes ignores the laws of physics. You can have a disc that's spinning in the traditional sense...

Don't try to make contact with the bottom of the flight plate like you probably do with more shallow discs. For me the grip feels quite a bit different, but it still has all the aspects of a good...
