Also make sure your weight is over your pivot foot because if your weight is back then it's very hard to throw nose down.

It may have already been said, but slow down your run up. I was having problems getting max distance because I was trying too hard. Slow down, focus on reach back, snap, posture, etc. It's worked for me, so maybe it will for you!

Another tip that works for me: keep your head down when you throw. When I lift my head expecting to see my disc go sailing for some big D, the disc ends up being released nose up, climbs to heavens and stalls out. When I keep my head down and focus on finishing out the throw, that's where the gravy is.
