I think next step is get yourself a very easy 300' FH shot. I really like throwing FH upshots in those inbetween ranges, from like 100-250'. If you get it solid and get yourself some confidence...

This is the best I can explain what I'm feeling, and it has really improved my putting about as much as when I figured out a consistent and balanced weight shift.

This pop/hit feels similar to...

For some reason I have an image in my head of a Follow Flight when Eagle got a 2 by skipping in a 350ish FH on his second shot on an 800ish par 4. I can't remember the specific video, but my point...

This is a really good description of how it feels to me too. I don't worry about the hand angles anymore, and I can feel the weight of the disc down below my hand sometimes or at weird angles when...

Just to add, in my case it was just the fracture and I didn't need surgery because the bones were still aligned/compressed together fine. There was just some grinding of scar tissue in the shoulder...

Get the back edge of the disc to swing all the way to the front and out of your hand...it's crazy how it works out. I used to have to feel like I was holding the left wing up to have the disc flat...

I bet you'll find the AX3 to have a bit more fade and be faster than the Berg...kind of seeking the ground because the overstability makes it die a bit vs. the Berg where the speed and bulkiness...

The butt kind of counterweights the torso, and the rear leg helps counterweight the arm swinging. If you let yourself be angled/tilted and free flowing, then you'll feel where you can keep swinging...

Crisp is the right description of how it feels to me. I would try to get far less hyzer though, I find those can be prone to weird reaction to the wind more, and can cut through the chains more...

Low ceiling to me means I choose a faster mid rather than Roc/Comet style. 300' to me is pretty standard with a mid so I don't need one with extra glide or turn to help...this depends on your arm...

That's exactly the track to take I think. Add like 10-20' to that comfortable range at a time and soon you'll be throwing 250'+ putter shots with no effort and all leverage.

Awesome that the...

So many of the new releases are the real high speed stuff that's "supposed" to go farthest, but not necessarily for the typical player.

I still think the US speed 9 class like SW/Roadrunner/Valk...

I think you should do one leg drill and post it. Don't even need to throw, you can swing something heavy back and forth on your front leg to help with setup...setup needs a bit of fixing.

Agreed with jakebake91. I put the initial 2x or more cost into MVP putters over baseline putters and use them for all putts, approaches FH/BH, and BH drives...basically they get thrown 50-100x more...
