Default increasing distance---angle and more spin

Hi,
What is the ideal trajectory of a disc to get maximum distance. angle vs. the ground?

how do you create more spin on the disc?

thx/

Grip pressure creates spin when the disc pivots around the rip point in the grip.

To maximize distance, the disc must have a nose down angle at the apex of the flight.

check out this article for a good read: http://discgolfreview.com/resources/...ncemyths.shtml

Lots of different technique threads here which will help improve things like your timing and overall form so you are able to impart more spin and force on the disc. A little more background info is very helpful though in order to direct you in a more specific manner.

I see a lot of people curling their wrist to increase spin. That's actually counter-productive. You want to resist the wrist closing to create a spring-like effect.
