I wouldn't spend too long with only putters and mids. They're great at showing some form flaws but most will fly pretty well when thrown nose up. You'll want to work with some slower drivers as...

The slower disc, for sure. They'll be less nose angle and speed sensitive.

The Valkyrie is also somewhat nose angle sensitive, especially for a beginner, so it's probably not a good disc to use as a way to figure out what's good and bad with your throw. What you're seeing...

To someone 20' away, yes. To someone 300' away, no.

Because the technique and hand speed required to throw 20' is way different than what's required to throw 300'. There are a lot of things...

I also don't believe that anyone has the ability to measure the RPM's on a disc they just threw that's flying away from them at 40MPH and spinning at 30 revolutions per second. You may assume that's...

My guess is that you can only really control it on shorter approach shots. Think about how you would control spin, you'd change your release point to add rotational speed rather than linear speed. ...

But the the technique to throw 5' with a ton of spin is way different than a drive. I'd like to see a video of someone using a driving technique to throw 5'.

It's clearly not impossible if you...

How do you know you're actually varying you spin that much and getting the results you expect? Sure you can get different flights, but you haven't isolated spin on those throws so the flight paths...

In 8th grade we had a kid that was 6', ~210 lbs. It was hilarious to watch at wrestling meets. He was bigger than either of our coaches.

My recollection is that while S Blazes do season well, they aren't particularly long. It's kind of like the Sabre where they'll need more height to go as far as something like a Gazelle. Cycling...

If you work on learning to throw from a stand still and/or with fewer steps than a full x-step this becomes much less of an issue. "Powering down" just means taking fewer steps while still throwing...

I had these ~120g S Spirits I got somehow that were the flattest discs I've seen. They were ridiculously overstable (and I throw Spirits for my overstable driver) but were also terrible in the wind....

While measuring your drive speed is interesting and probably a fun project, it's likely much easier to just use a flight chart that categorizes discs based on how far you throw rather than "speed."

Starting your pull too early (as in when you plant your foot instead of just after) can cause late releases, too, and is pretty common.
