An increase in spin will make the disc fly more stable, and turn less. A good chance that a 2 finger grip may be adding some angle release issues and wobble. The wobble will get the discs flying...

47? So? 350' is the max distance for a 47 year old?

Some misunderstanding there. I think there is some merit there but a LOT of caution.

Fair enough.

For most people reaching a goal and throwing "far" in the armature arena form is way more than 1/2 the battle. This is why the focus. To start breaking though into elite distance...
