Super Inconsistant distance

So I'm posting a video tonight or tomorrow I promise, but anyways...

Throwing for my video last night I was just super frustrated in the variance in distance i get when throwing for "distance."

My throws went something like this into a mild mild mild headwind

z stalker: 310
Fresh champ teebird: 320
beat champ teebird: 380
beatish star valk: 380
CPD: 320
esp crush: 330 (nose up was way up)
z surge: 410

Is there something specific that is the usual culprit here? Like i said Ill throw up a video tonight or tomorrow, but just wanting something to discuss and think about at work today lol

My guess would be you get out of balance.

My guess would be that your technique is inconsistent somehow whether that be nose angle, rounding, off balance, etc. I'm not a huge d thrower, but I can relate with my experiences. Sometimes I would throw very far for me, then the next one was crap. Work on consistency.

Obviously hard to say without a vid, but timing that "hop" into my x-step really helped me with my balance and timing.

Are you getting consistent distances with individual discs? Repetition is the only thing that makes me more consistent. Otherwise I'm just trying to put brute force on a disc and I focus on forcing it rather than just letting my mechanics do the work.

In my experience, if you have to think about your throw and individual distances, you're gonna throw poorly. When you can do it in your sleep, the consistency should follow. Similar to the concept behind putting repetition. Only I think it's more important for distance because there's a lot more going on there.

different discs will go different distances based on how you throw them. some people can bomb certain discs, but not others. I see nothing wrong with your distances. I will second the "is each disc consistent to itself?"

If the same disc will go 50' different on "the same" throw. that would really lead to a technique issue. (i'm going through this with my distance driver right now, frustrating)

Probably need more info....

From what I know about the discs you list (I haven't thrown them all,) the D's you mention could easily be consistent throws, but different discs. I'm not even necessarily suprised to see 60 ft of diff between a beat Tbird and a fresh Tbird.

A more telling indicator, as mentioned by the others, would be, say, 5 throws with the same disc.

And if you get video up, there's about 10 guys on here that are great at breaking it down.

I know that often when I have a throw where I get considerably less than my average D, I can feel it, I can feel where I "miss" the snap/hit.

I always think of the old movie line:

"What we have here, is a failure to accelerate."

But, since you get decent D in general, you're probably not "all over the place" with your form...it's gonna take one of the form gurus on here looking at some vid.

Sweat the small stuff.....?
