Left pec throwers

How do you tell a left pec from right pec thrower? What are the differences in the throws of left pec throwers? Is one or the other better for distance, accuracy, or consistency?

I believe the first thrower in this vid is a good example.

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.

Throwing from the left pec in lieu of the right will cause your follow through to be more rounded and you will lose power. bringing the disc farther forward and hinging the elbow more will give you more power. it also gives more angular velocity and thus more centrifugal force on the throwing motion.

Yeah Dan Beto suggests having the disc pull past your right pec & releasing out there somewhere (RHBH).
Releasing early, say left pec will get your butt kicked by Dan Beto lol

you don't release the disc. it rips out of your grip. if you are releasing the disc, you are losing all sorts of potential energy.

That dude in the vid looks pretty deep in the right pec pocket, and he crushed it! I'd consider most of the top distance throwers... Brinster, Wiggins, Jenkins, Jarvis', Kallstrom, Feldy, Bratten, Jusi, Voigt, Schusterick, Mcbeth, Ulibarri, and many others left pec throwers in that they only bring the disc in close to the left pec. Right pec throwers I'd say Doss for sure, Jesper, Climo, and maybe Wysocki. They all get the elbow forward of the right pec/shoulder before chop though. I'd say the main difference between them being more distance potential from the left from longer acceleration/longer lever, and from the right pec is quicker/more abrupt acceleration.

The guy in the video is Miko Fyhr, and he bombs. Looking at this still from the video it looks though as he is at least between the pecs, or at the right pec, so he's not really a left pec thrower.
