I think that there are two or three distinct questions in your post, so I've broken it up:


When talking absolute max uncontrolled distance, fast and understable is better because it allows a...

Ah, that 45 degrees to the left bit is something I hadn't caught before. I'll have to give it a shot!

I've heard this thumb push referenced by a few different people, but I can't fathom how the thumb (on the top of the flight plate) could be pushing the disc unless I'd put the disc in a nose-up...

I definitely get this feel on my forehand, but it's much harder for me to get it on my backhands. I'm not even sure if I've ever fully gotten it on the backhand side. Should the backhand have a...

Correct, like an OK sign.



Yeah adding power is tricky. Have to make sure that your hand still "releases" at the hit point and your fingers follow-through before your wrist which follows...

A bit less visible than his arm motion, but Paul McBeth also grips his sidearm throws differently than most players.

Most players extend their index and middle fingers straight out together to...

I've read this before, about the hips being a "counterweight", but it makes no sense to me. I'm not saying that it's wrong, I'm just saying that I can't wrap my head around it. My mind works best...

Mechanical engineer here, though I am plateaued at 375ish ft of max RHBH golf distance.

Yes, but does the rotational speed diminish in images 5 and 6 (at the start of this thread) or does the rotational speed remain constant and you say that the shoulder's linear velocity to the target...

So if the target is at 12:00, do the hips (and then the shoulders) start decelerating when they are facing the 9:00 direction? (RHBH)

People talk about "pinching really hard" before release of the disc, and that equaling distance. Are you saying that that is bad?

I also tend to feel some tension in my arm as I try to get the...

Second and perhaps more important question: when the brace "hits" or becomes fully engaged, is the left hip "visible to the target"? In other words, let's say that your momentum is moving from 6:00...
