My 8 year old daughter's form

Posted about a month ago that my daughter broke 100' with an Opto Pure.

Just wanted to post a "form video" of her, because (I admit I'm very biased) her progress and form impresses me at this point.

Here's her throwing an R-Pro Dart about 120' (slightly downhill). She threw a 150-class Valkyrie on a flex shot about 160' on the course the other day.

Something went wrong. Please make sure you added the video correctly. Click here to see how YouTube videos should be embedded. There could also be a technical issue that's not your fault. Click here to view the video on YouTube's site. If this link doesn't work, you did something wrong.

Any advice would be appreciated, and I'd be interested to see videos of other folks' kids hukking.

Good rhythm and finish, don't think I'd mess with anything other than maybe lighter discs. She'll be kicking your arse soon.

She's actually got her own purple sparkle Pearl, 154g that she uses when we play the local pitch and putt.

Usually putts with my purple Anode, but I'll get her a Ruby soon.

Dart she threw in the vid is mine, 175g and I know it's way too heavy for her, but we just throw a big stack of oldish discs when we're playing in the yard, more about her remembering the components of her form than getting distance.

How do those super light Quest discs throw? I've always written that company off completely.

MSt has DX Rocs as low as 109g. Might have to add one to my next order for her.
