Driving distance question

So I am at a bit of a wall and I am looking to make a next step. I can throw a teebird 330 avg and have hit 360 with it before GPS measurements thanks to udisc app. The issue is that I can't seem to throw my speed 10 stuff any further. What technique flaws most often lead to this?

Check the stickies. There is a thread about hitting the wall at 300.
Maxing out at 300

Been there

Oh I have been all over that thread countless times.

The problem with that thread is that it has become so filled with minutia and seemingly contradictory information that it renders it rather useless and incomprehensible to those who can't throw far, while it must appear to make absolute sense to those who already can throw far.

I can look back at the thread and pick out the elements that have gotten me to 330 avg/360max, but they only make sense to me in hindsight. I gave up on that post a year ago when it had me trying to feel and do all sorts of things that were leading to injury.

I posted this post looking for clarity. Just a list of things that typically contribute to a speed 7 and a speed 10 disc going the same distance 330/360.

My first thought is nose angle, slower discs are less sensitive to a nose up throw, while faster drivers will stall out easier and lose more distance with the nose up. You'll generally get the best advice here if you post a video of you throwing, way easier to pick out specific issues when people can see your throw.

yeah generally your problem will be nose up, poor weight shift or you're opening up to early and it's messing your timing up.

Nose Up

I have been suspecting it might be nose up. Should be able to fix that with a roll of the wrist to the right (RHBH) at the hit I would think? Something to experiment with.

video

I will try to get the video up. I don't really have a video camera, is the video in an iphone 4 enough to work with?

You really don't want to be rolling the wrist in most cases, I think it's easier to think about cocking my wrist downward like I'm giving a handshake and also concentrating on having my weight forward like New mentioned. Iphone video should be fine for most issues, I use a free app called slopro to get slow motion video of my drives.

Good tip on the handshake and the app. I will work on both. Thanks!
