If something doesn't work for you, that's fine, don't do it. But why is it that when something doesn't work for you or make sense to you, you label it as incorrect, even if numerous other people are...

How many of those average novices are out there chucking and having fun, and how many are poring over form videos and critiques? A better comparison would be between players with more involved...

Let's have a 1v1 tug of war. Let's also assume we have equal strength and mass. I get to shift my weight in the direction I'm pulling and pull from there. You don't get to shift your weight in the...

It is there in multiple places in the video, with a summary at around 0:57. Watch what happens to the door when the hips shift forward. The hips are engaged.

I got a few embossed C-Line FDs that fly close to my seasoned Champ Teebirds I've been throwing for a few years. Pretty much straight, maybe a bit of turn, very mild fade. Closer to a new Champ...

So many issues to unpack.

1) Pointing out issues is not a "negative critique." Seems like you couldn't handle seeing any criticism whatsoever of something you deemed a "perfect showcase."

I can carry a Condor in the lowest of the 3 vertical disc pockets of my Upper Park Rebel backpack. Fits in there pretty well; I don't feel like I'm stuffing it in.

Don't take it personally. It's not you being new. The thing is, based on what you have shared, you do have form issues and also don't quite understand the mechanics of throwing (and the concepts of...

First thought with the faster discs is that it could be a nose angle issue. Putters like to fly with some nose up but faster discs don't. Could be a simple grip adjustment is all you need.

IMO the "best practice" is to know your discs and be able to adjust your angles/height as necessary. Either approach can work, so whichever you are more consistent with is the better one.

Not SW22, but again, you are shifting the burden where it doesn't belong. The one making the extraordinary claims carries the burden of proof.

This sounds like there is some correctable form/grip/technique issue. Putters can take a good amount of power, well over 150 feet, and still fly stable. Same thing with a Mako3; yes it is a very...

It sounds like you are still focused on rotation as the driving force like in the 320 foot barrier thread, and here it is at the expense of timing relative to the weight shift. Again, rotation is an...
