That's right, on short holes you're obviously not reaching back as far and relying more on wrist action.

For bent elbow, start out keeping everything the same but with your arm bent instead of...

BTW, speaking of the elbow in the throwing motion, I use the 'Bent Elbow Technique', which precluded all this maximum reachback stuff, and is endorsed by some long time disc golfers, including Dave...

Exactly! You can't crank on the Pearl, its combination of understability and light weight doesn't allow for that. IMO, the Pearl is really a Fuse light. Look, feel, flight is almost identical, but...

Yeh, it does simplify things. Elbow "chop" is kind of a misnomer. What you want is your elbow out in front, which will happen naturally if you're pulling through across your chest. There's no...

Throwing from a stand still is a great way to learn proper form...reachback, right pec drill, etc. But giving up entirely on an x-step is going to really limit your driving, and development.

You have a very extended run-up with a lot of energy and momentum, which has to be hard to control, and duplicate each time. It looks like you're having to start well behind the teepad to go through...

IMO, your left arm and shoulder look fine, arm loose and down at side when throwing...good. You may be keeping your left hand on the disc too long, but that's more a matter of preference.

FWIW, I really liked the Anode, but switched to an Opto Pure because of the more comfortable rim and cleaner release. Both are great for shorter approach shots.

I agree with this ^^ re 1.2 QOLF's.

Okay, good points. In a nutshell, I think of a control driver as slow(or slower) and straight. The Stalker, even though I don't like the disc, is one of the best examples.

Why not throw a disc rated for zero turn and minimal fade where straight control is needed?
