Question for taller players

Those of you who stand 6' and up, How high or low is your pull through? Do you start high and pull downward or keep it level through the whole shot? I've tried all kinds of different lines to pull through. What seems to work best for you taller players?

Thanks,

Yup what he said. My throw is typically mid chest height and I'm 6'3.

Just below the nips during the business portion of the throw. I'll start my pull a little low to high if I'm throwing hyzer and high to low if anhyzer.

Likewise. 6'3" here - I pull straight across my chest.

i'm 6'2", when i pull thru my elbow is about even with my nipple. not to get graphic... but it is. basically hold your right arm straight out, bring your right hand in and touch your left nipple with your right index finger, then lower your elbow so your forearm is parallel to the ground. that's what feels most comfortable for me.

the form is no different for taller players than shorter ones. Taller players tend to take longer strides though, but that's not worth discussion on this.

QFT. At 6'5" my pull is similar to the shorter guys, but my strides are huge. I generally don't have room for any kind of run-up.

I'm 6'3", I pull slightly low to high starting a few inches above my belly button and ending at around mid rib height for an average shot. I don't think height changes that part of the throw much, it's more of a difference on how large you are (especially across the gut and/or chest).
