I do this occasionally as well. I tend to do it more on turnover shots so maybe pay attention to what type of shot he is trying to throw when it happens.

If he is too close to his body and...

Thanks Sidewinder. I guess I'll give the Avery grip another try. That seemed to be the next best option for me.

Moving from Fairway to Distance with FH?

Figured I would tag along with this thread. I primarily throw RHBH (max about 425'). I have been working hard to add a FH over the past year.

I actually feel more comfortable flicking putters,...

Loving it FH, BH not so much

I have both a 175g and 160g Tesla. I throw primarily RHBH (400-425 with control max distance using speed 12/13 drivers).

My bag is all MVP other than my highest speed drivers and I have been...

I feel old now. I'm 36 and max between 425-450 on flat ground, no wind. I've hit 500 a couple times with a decent tailwind but that is with a huge anny and very poor accuracy expectation.

450 is...

I'm primarily RHBH. I added a RHFH shot this year and it has really helped.

I tried LHBH first since I'm fairly ambidextrous but found the FH was more useful on the course. I like being able...

I threw one tonight

I live in Phoenix and a guy sponsored by DGA (sorry can't remember his name) brought one to our local league. It was a fresh prototype and it was pretty beefy. I threw it along with another guy to...

Destroyers listed as -2. Less stable out of the box then a normal Star/Champ?

Completely agree with this. Mine was a meat hook brand new but I took off the flashing and it developed some turn fairly quickly when thrown ~350'ish. I would say it is less HSS than my champ...

Definition of Strong Arm

Doesn't really sound like you need a new disc. Just need to clean up your form a little bit. Even if you get to a "half-hit" you can throw a mid 300 feet pretty easily. If you try to strong arm an...

I'm looking to play a round with another guy on Monday morning sometime. I would guess around 9am but don't know which course yet. If you or anyone else is interested hit me up with a PM.

I agree on #5. It is less than 450'. I can't throw as far as Hammer and I was only about 20-25 feet out on my second shot and I didn't really try to crush the drive.

I tossed a D4 into the lake...

Any updates on Fiesta Lakes?

I don't do Facebook so I feel out of the loop. Anyone know if we are still a couple weeks away from it opening?

In general I agree with this but they are also very inconsistent. I have a 135g Destroyer that is plenty stable but I had a <140 Ape that was the flippiest disc I've ever thrown. I'd say 1/5...

I think it has more to do with inconsistency in the D4 then your arm. I've thrown 3 and the first run that I own is much more overstable than the the other 2 (one was a proto, the other another...
