Nobody seems to have any idea what constitutes a legal jump or falling putt.

During ALL shots, you must have a support point on the ground behind your marker upon release.
Inside the circle, you must maintain all points of support behind the marker until the disc comes to rest in the basket or chains.

Not really. It would probably be beneficial to everyones game. You can generate nearly as much power in a stand still throw as you can with a 3 step. Russell (gcrussell on here) is proof of this. That's all he does is stand still. He can bomb.

Sorry, but this isn't accurate either. You just have to demonstrate balance.

I couldn't care less about jump putting, it is this 30cm square I am worried about.

"nah brah, I can totally stand off to the side of my disc because it is 21cm wide and that means if my foot is 4.5 cm to the right of the right side of the disc I can bypass this obstacle a little easier."

Yes. If you have to do a run-up on a 100' shot, you're doing it wrong.

Just my 2 cents: I have seen maybe 1 person actually let go of the disc before their foot left the ground. Everyone else seems to think they get an extra couple of feet from the "jump" part before they need to release. And not all these were rec players, one was very aware of the rule. I say ****can the whole notion of jump putting. But that's my 2 cents.

One issue I have with that is that it completely takes away the advantage of placing your shot well on a longer hole. If I walk up to a 700' hole and put my drive on a flat area of short grass and someone else on the card gets just as far but ends up on a slope with sticks and rocks, I'll have the advantage on the next throw. If everyone is forced to throw from a standstill that advantage goes away and a big part of the strategy of shot placement goes away.

doesn't say you have to throw from a standstill, just can't go past your marker. You can still X step and throw.

I like that idea a lot.

I'm so confused.... Lol

So can I use an example of jump putting.

When a nba basketball player shoots a 3 pointer behind the line but jumps past it and releases it and makes it.

Would that be legal yes or no?

I mean the nba allows it right

I would love to see someone take a full x-step, get their plant foot in the right spot behind their marker, and somehow manage to not follow through. Sounds like a recipe for crappy shots and blown out knees to me.
