You and I throw about the same distance (I might have you on backhand but your forehand towers over my 385’ all out flex FH game) and I genuinely think you’d be better served with a Reactor. Hex was...

The only reason I had said flex line was because he puts it on anhyzer - meaning it’s stable enough to be ripped 400 feet on an anhyzer line and not turn and burn, which actually proves the point I...

ME major here, thought I’d chip in.
To a point your statement is correct. Take a stable putter (P2 is a good example) and compare it to say a Katana. When thrown at say 35 MPH, the katana will have...

Yeah I’m with az, the heel pivots during/after the throw to keep lateral strain off of your knee. You shouldn’t be leaking much, or really any, power without cleats (former soccer player here, that’s...

I don’t think below the elbow is necessarily always correct, disc should be on plane with the elbow. if throwing hyzer it might look like the disc is below the elbow, but if throwing flat/anhyzer...

Set up an empty water/Gatorade/other plastic bottle 30 feet or so in front of you and try to hit it with the disc. If you keep throwing high and still can’t bring it down, intentionally try to throw...

Think of the throw as a bow and arrow, assisted by your run up.

The run up is just that - a run up. You’re building kinetic energy. The pulling back of the bow, that’s where the real power is. The...

Left foot doesn’t start the kinetic sequence, left foot strides momentum forward and acts as a spring/potential energy builder. Simon has smooth acceleration throughout his sequence, has some of the...

Most people throw forehand underhand/swinging up. It puts a little more stress on elbow and shoulder vs correct over the top form IMO, because it puts them at slightly unnatural angles - but if you...

Hmmm a picture would be helpful, and also make sure you’re stacked with your index behind the middle. The disc’s inner rim should be on the pad of the middle finger, as opposed to the side -...

Off arm doesn’t tuck in to quicken rotation, it’s more used to increase leverage as a counterweight/addition to the brace.

To fix your issue with wrist over elbow, usually that stems from a grip...

I don’t throw rollers a lot, and when I do, it’s usually spectacularly underwhelming. So I figured I’d ask -

1. What all kinds of rollers are there? Distance, placement, curl to get around an...
