Try the bodycheck feel like you're just going to blast through someone with the right shoulder/upper arm. That way you should get your head over the leg and the shoulder should be in front of the...

Feel-wise, in the second set of images in the classic "power pocket" position, SW has just used his weight shift/momentum landing on the right leg to bring his torso to this position and the arm/disc...

I've had really good luck with feeling a similar hit point to the drive, by leveraging the opposite edge of the disc.

Pinch the disc between your index and thumb through the flight plate at the...

Those are some good discs. I bag the Ion and Compass as that stable-OS putter and mid slot. Both have typical glide and amazing consistency. I also bag the FD as a stable/neutral but glidey fairway....

I'll give you a rundown for myself, seeing as I throw that 400' golf line distance generally.

If I say a disc is stable I mean straight/neutral. If I say a disc is stable-OS that means neutral to...

The weird thing to me is that even though we know the numbers are relative to speed classes, it seems that for putters a "normal" glide is a 3. For mids a normal glide is a 4, like Rocs are...

Just in general in the dry swing from the side camera, it looks like your momentum from the X-step is pulling or bringing you to the upright position on the plant. Like you are aiming to be a pole...

I'm pretty excited, I normally throw a lot of FH's. But it took me like 1/3 the effort today to throw 370ish fairway turnovers compared to smashing on a power FH. I'm starting to see why players...

Well, that makes the game easier. I threw several of the best shots I've ever thrown on a course I play a ton, and lots of ace runs. Also lots of searching for discs that were 30' or so farther...

For BH I like standstill as a way of powering down shots, for me it's roughly 10% loss in distance at the same effort feel. So I can throw shorter shots with better feel or a fuller swing. But I...

I'm surprised the Chainstar did that well. I think I don't love them because you can get a variety of misses like cut throughs, bounce backs, and weak side push outs both low and high. Even though...

Nah, he'd have thrown a Nova on some of the shots and beat in Roc3's on others. Putting is putting and all in your head and technique. Having a disc you trust in your hand can help with the mental...

You are probably getting early releases when doing that arc too, which will result in horrible skied early hyzers like you said. It won't work unless you get the full hit point.

So take it to an...

With those distances I suspect you're getting a pretty snappy/spin type release instead of a leveraged velocity one. Because throwing 160' with a putter is a very high % of your max distance you are...
