Default Pulling on a straight line

Pretty simple question: Which part of the disc is supposed to be being pulled straight?

???

are you referring to a straight pull of your arm rather than a swoop around?

I am referring to the straight line that Feldberg tells me will not allow my disc to go anywhere but towards my target.

Thanks SW. I don't think it needs clarifying, but just to make sure I'm reading this right; "the center of the disc" is the part on the straight line.

see the above pic

that is a straight pull...it's not the disc per se

what Feldberg is getting at is if you swoop your arm around your torso your release point is going to be different each time (and you will lose power)

I try to keep my hand in more a straight line, not necessarily the disc. The disc will actually arc some.

Hey SW thanks for the illustration, at pic 5 do you or did you at one time conciously hit at a nail as part of the hit or snap?

I'm not the illustrator. That is the idea for the most part.
