Lightbulb Disc Preferences?

I've been playing casually for 6 or 7 years now but gotten more frequent and into tournaments and such last couple years and have really only used innova discs specifically the leopard which was what i learned with and others such as champion wraith, pro valkrie, eagle, skeeter, and birdie as a putter. I've seemed to max out my driving potential and am wondering what else might give me some extra distance? I recently have been using an ace race thats been true and straight but no longer than the others. I am RHBH. Thanks!!

Record yourself throwing and post it in the Technique forum for a critique. No foolin'.

My guess is that you havent maxed out your distance. What dg distances are you getting with said discs? A disc will not magically give you distance in most instances. I agree with posting up a video to get feedback on your technique, or work with a local open player.

I don't think i've maxed out either but with my current technique and discs i've seemed to hit the wall. I'd say i get a solid 225-250ft. drive consistently but i've seen several players utilizing half the energy i am easily outdriving me. I will work on getting a video uploaded and thanks for the Buzz suggestion i've been wanting to try it out neways.

For starters I'd spend a little time with these drills:

Right Pec:

As others have said, posting a video can be very helpful in allowing others to guide you as to what may need some adjustment. I had a hard time getting the idea stuck in my head that it's not how hard you throw the disc, its how you throw the disc.

Mike C's videos also helped me and are entertaining. Watching him bomb putters as far as I can throw a driver is humbling and inspiring.

The Buzz is a great disc and I would in no way not recommend it. I would also suggest looking into a X Comet. They were and are very helpful for me as they can show form issues easily.
