Flare is about the beefiest disc I’ve ever thrown that still flies. Stego and early Gateway Spirits don’t fly, they just fade.
Stego is just mean. It will never, ever turn. I don’t care how hard...

By not the goal I’m saying rotation is not the end-all-be-all.
Rotation will happen, of course. If it seemed like I meant it won’t happen then I apologize because that certainly isn’t what I meant....

The gif you posted clearly shows the right hip and glute stay in place. I reiterate-the axis of rotation is not the spine. It’s the brace.

To be more specific, I meant biomechanically. Not necessarily what muscles fire, but what muscles are doing and in what direction.

A slower speed but more overstable disc will fly straighter overall. It’ll be more resistant to turn and will likely fade less because of its lower cruising speed and the wind adding airspeed.

You’re incorrect in your assessment of the throw.

The spine isnt the center of rotation. The lead leg and brace is. Hip rotation isnt a goal, its a product of proper bracing. Take a look at the picture I posted last night and how I described it a...

@RocHucker very well said sir.
Here’s the thing about levers. The longer the lever, technically speaking, the more force it takes to move. The shorter the lever is the easier it is to move, however!...

I’ll draw you a free body diagram tonight when I get home from work, it makes a good deal of sense if it’s laid out. It’s really tough to understand it as a whole, I like starting piece by piece,...

I get that if you pull the hammer into the power pocket it’s gonna hit you in the chest, I’ll give you that and didn’t deny that will happen.

The main point here though is that you don’t pull the...

Shoulder down is mechanically identical. The hammer drill is designed to teach your lower body and lats the feel of leverage. Just spinning gives no leverage.

I’ve been thinking the same thing for a while. Any motion of the hand after release is technically energy loss, as it wasn’t 100% transferred to the disc. Obviously you won’t be 100% efficient as the...
