That sounds about right. Except that I find backhand to be the same also. And just to clarify "nose down", nose down doesn't mean that a disc is released nose down. It means the nose is down at the...

How many holes am I throwing a Firebird on that you're throwing a Tern on?

I suppose that's a fine way of thinking about it. Personally, though, I consider the arm path the fundamental and the release timing more nebulous. It's something that seems to take pure repetition...

The Bolt and Nuke SS are both up towards the top for me for the same reasons, mostly. But I've also found them to not want to turn if you throw it wrong also.

I disagree with that a bit. Spin putting is a lot easier to miss side to side, even with proper mechanics. You can't get mechanics to get a consistent hit, because there isn't enough force to rip the...

I definitely like the Prolines best. I don't see any reason to go to SP; Prolines beat in a little more slowly than I'd like, really. D-Lines definitely have their place, though.

The one I had started out dead straight. It beat in somewhat quickly, but hit a sweet spot fairly quickly and I lost it before it got too flippy. They start more stable, and stay more stable, than...

Squalls can go a LONG way with very little fade (especially in 150g D-line). I rarely bag another understable mold, and I usually only carry beat-to-understable Polecat and discs in the 12-13 speed...

You need to involve your entire body to throw far. First thing I see is that your rear (left) toes aren't involved; they leave the ground before your heel. Getting that foot closer to perpendicular...

The pressure on your front foot should be more toward the insole, and between the heel and ball (your weight gets behind the heel a bit). Also, your rear heel should never move rear-ward; try planing...

Disc golf requires ambidexterity of the feet, not the arm. Although you may find ambidexterity of the arm more useful than a FH/BH combo. Personally, I use all 4 combinations of ambidexterity.

It's not critical. It's mostly helpful for developing comfort with a mold, which is something you really only care a lot about after you've ironed out your setup.
