Super sick video of david wiggins throwing 700ft level ground, no wind

Its really ashame that great videos like this with a high speed camera that can follow a disc 700ft with clarity only have like 100 views. Anyways, yeah im super glad i stumbled upon this video, its one of the best ive seen. It also goes slow mo with him throwing so we can all see how he gets so much speed. Also i saw another vid of this same event, and they were measuring with laser rangefinders just in case anyone was going to question how legit the distances are. That sky flex shot that went 700 was soooo sick to watch. Anyways, here it is.

Yeah he did have some wobble. I dont blame him though, that disc is probably coming out 90+mph.

Yea, I'm not saying it was bad, just surprising. He has so much snap, I think it'd be impossible not to wobble at that angle. Notice how the FH was clean though. Interesting.

Yeah i was surprised by how he literally didn't have any wobble in his sidearm, even with doing the little wrist chop in the beginning of the throw. Pretty impressive because he doesn't throw sidearms much.

Had no idea he was in Japan right now.

I did hear that he's putting off college for a year to go on tour.

I may never get to throw with him, but its pretty cool knowing I'm on the same team as this guy. He's the true definition of a hyzer bomber! Maybe one day I'll get a round in with him.
