Going into a field and throwing putters helped me clean up my form a lot. I think that it is good advice to learn how to throw putters. I've me very few DGers who Have learned correct form by throwing a boss or a force

To each their own. That is why everyone doesn't have the exact same disc line-up in their bag ;P

It doesn't work to call people trolls, when you made a thread knowing good and well it would be trolled. You're basically trolling the trolls, with a thread made for trolling.

Bad thread is bad.

Of course, if I was having trouble throwing my putter, wouldn't you suggest I take my putter to a field and throw it, not say, a Firebird, right?
You are throwing your discs over 200ft HIGH in the air?

Thank you.
I do not question that just throwing in general will help form. My peeve is people can learn the same form throwing a slower speed driver like a Teebird, and disc down from Bosses and Destroyers, but still have the feel of a driver in hand.
