Recording some of your throws is a great idea and something I wish I did earlier. If you know the basics of a good throw, the videos can be useful just for you to review. If not, the technique...

By "throwing to the right", do you mean you are throwing big hyzers or the disc is turning over to the right or is just late releasing as you mentioned. If it's late releasing, it's probably related...

While I still have enough to learn about good form, I can't exactly picture what a "hop step" is. Since basically every great player uses the basic x-step as their footwork for driving, I am going...

Do they really need three keyboards in a band?

On topic: I would start with learning the basic foot position of the x-step and focus on the feet and move up the body. Try to take videos of...

Ok, that makes more sense to me. You probably do well with them because you are trusting the disc more than you trust your accuracy throwing a neutral flying disc and guiding it to the basket.

I have all three of those discs [by my Valkyrie is Star plastic] and think those are good fairway drivers. The River is a great disc for slower arms as it is very glidey. When you start to throw it...

Good to hear that progress is being made. For me, I am fairly competitive in nature and used scoring a round as a motivator and a way to measure overall improvement. You might want to consider...

My max drives are in the 380s. Out of the 7 I measured with UDisc, 3 of them are the L64 Saint [9 spd], 2 are L64 Flow [11 spd], 2 are L64 Ballista [14 spd]. My Ballista is really just a stable...

I wouldn't go anything higher than a midrange, so those assortments of Buzzzzes should work well. I would work with them until you can at least throw them 250' fairly consistently. Each type of...

I don't think throwing far off a drive and putting well have much to do with each other. Both rely on great technique, but they are very different from each other. The four MPO players you...

I think her rating is there because of two reasons...

1. She is an aggressive player and I believe is the highest "out of bounds" player last year, FPO or MPO!

2. She is the highest rate FPO...

I voted 500'+ for the sake of this thread and here is my "proof".
Granted the tee pad is up on a 30' to 40' hill and I would never state this as my actual distance. On the same hole [listed as...

Good to hear the progress is continuing. I can relate to the fact that when you throw far, it usually doesn't take that much effort, but form and timing. I can easily throw a 200' bad throw that is...

I hear what you are saying and I am now stuck somewhere in between. As I get better at my driving, I am now buying higher speed discs as I try to extend my drives on the longer holes. On the flip...

Initially, I didn't like Paige bringing up the "loyalty" factor in her video because it seemed like there was a contract that didn't have an opt-out option for the player. If it was an informal...

I presume you meant to reverse the "minimum" and "maximum"? For every course, you always have a drive and a "putt", unless you get a rare ace. The variable for most people is the approach shots...

I believe you need to have a certified "Official Status" to play in a NT event, but I think that is it. That's just a test to make sure you know the rules.
