It looks like you've got a great grip on the disc and you're getting really good leverage and efficient energy transfer on the disc. Since you naturally connect with your drives pretty hard, little tweaks with posture and weight shift can pick up little chunks. Getting your elbow farther forward before you release your forearm is another way to pick up a chunk of distance (perhaps the biggest one).

I gave you some **** in that other thread but only because you know you throw faster than 99% of the people you see on courses With a few minor adjustments you could pick up more distance. Working on your short game is obviously great but I wouldn't give up on throwing farther yet.

I don't know what to critique on the throw really because it looks like a well executed distance anhzyer line and the other than that the camera moves before you can see the followthrough and can't see the disc in flight either. Maybe slow down and get more acceleration. Throw a golf line and lets see what you can do.
Yeah i see it. I just don't know how he does it. Kachtz is all wrist extension, KatanaFrenzy looks all late acceleration and anhyzer.

would like to see a video throwing low and level with a 60fps camera.

New Camera isn't going to work but the angles and techniques will be easier to do! I'll make sure my camera man can get a better shot next time.

Damn!!!! 425 max....I was guessing around 270-280. I got to make a video of my noodle arm, if only I could throw that far!

I look forward to seeing videos of you throwing actual disc golf lines. Being able to park a 380-400 foot hole, even if it is wide open is a heck of an accomplishment for someone who has been playing only a few months. I bet you could do it.

Mark J has been throwing for many years, 5x longer than i have been, he has been competing in the BIG D in the desert since before 2006 i believe.

on a side note, this is a desert condition type throw, all anhyzer, super light and understable disc, and this guy and his brother (Ken) have both pretty much perfected this type of throw (not a disc golf throw)

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.

I've disced down this weekend and I only had OAT 1/10 throws. I've tried the elbow thing like someone mentioned at it feels amazing! Like same amount of D but with out the strain on my body. And yes I am throwing for D in the video. I did the same shot yesterday hyzer-flipping a roadrunner and it went the same distance. (got complemented on it by another group from the hole over) I have been getting more consistent with my golf lines with my TL and Teebirds now. Might make a video tomorrow. Thanks for the tips guys!!

you might want to slow down that run up it looks a little out of control. work on a clean x step then incorporate some run up. im sure that will help you get some weight forward and nose down.

Got another video!

It's at Royston on the Alternate Hole that is 392ft and I ended up behind it with a DD2. The drive after that is listed 367?ft with man-doe but we cut through it (club preference) so it is around 325 and I run it pretty good but park it 10ft from the basket with a TD.

View with 720p to see disc in the air!

wow nice form there. better than what I have for sure. Only thing I notice is a sort of half pivot on the heel. Not sure if that is desirable or not.
