Thanks very much.. Went out again this weekend and worked on "the move".. I can't really feel it, though it may be I'm trying to do too many new things at once. What worked best was when I mostly...

For the past year (my first playing dg) I threw exactly as you describe. I would line up my stance, hold the disc at the release point and angle I wanted, and visualize the line for a few seconds,...

I've had similar problems with tomahawk shots, being that they land on edge and roll. I have a decent forehand, so I don't really understand what's missing.. Usually release around 11 o'clock. The...

I throw everything from a standstill, and if I try even taking a single step everything suffers. I'm sure this is because I don't practice throwing with steps, and I imagine I will add steps in the...

Westside Warship. Same or more glide than a River, but you don't have to hyzer flip it. It's what I used for straight shots before I learned the Hyzer flip. Goes much farther much easier than it's...

Thanks for clarifying Paul... Did you always throw like that, or develop a more face forward form after learning to aim with your body?

Ah, true enough. Those both are probably more speed 5. Too much on them will turn them over, unless you get a super clean release. I'd go with a River, TL, or a Striker, though some rivers are...
