Where is your thumb when you throw? Is it more on the flight plate or more on the rim? If its closer to the edge of the disc try moving it onto the flight plate more

I don't think a Giant would be nice to this guy. Probably not a Rampage either.

I would rather stay away from disc companies I don't know anything about anyway. I'm used to Innova. and I have one Disc Craft banger-gt putters.

Legacy discs are made by an Innova guy, if I understand correctly. Innova and
Discraft also have several off-shoot companies they manufacture discs for. Latitude 64 and Westside also share manufacturing. Some people really like their plastic. They have very good glide, I hear. Discmania's DD2 is touted as possibly the furthest flying disc produced by Innova.

As long as you can make them fly right. Step up to the distance drives with understable discs and it'll be easier to get the nose down and keep it down.

i agree with all the OAT people on here.

I would get your self a comet, leopard and a teebird and practice in a field with those.

on a flat release you should see 0 flutter and have them do the following.

leopard - start straight a little high speed turn and then a little fade back.
teebird - start straight , stay that way and then fade more then the leopard
comet - just practice throwing this on all lines until you can get 0 flutter.

discing down was the best thing to happen to my game, EVER. i can get WAY more distance since i corrected my form.

In your second video your wrist is turned over on the follow through - facing up. This indicates what others are calling OAT. You are compensating with your wrist for the overstability of a disc, causing it to turn over or do a long 'S' curve.

Now - I can only point it out...I suck and am still trying to stop doing that myself. I got it better by throwing putters on a hyzer line out about 200 or so ...including my DX Birdie. If you can hyzer an understable putter far, then you aren't turning your wrist over - then work that into your other discs.

I found that after working for a while, the discs that used to be 'S' curve discs for me were running on hyzer lines all the time. Had to disc down to get back to distance.

It is really interesting looking at your follow through frame by frame. One frame it is facing up, then the next frame you flip it back down - almost like you are deliberately trying not to flip it up, but your body does, then you compensate.
