Basically what it boils down to, is that you don't need to "kill it" to make it go far. If you have everything in the right place at the right time its effortless........Every move is predicated by the can be frusterating, but it is well worth it in the long run.
It's funny. I've been doing the towel drill at home a lot and can get a pretty good snap but because of lack of room I always do it with no run up or step. Just turn, whip, snap. I haven't quite got the same timing with a disc in my hand but it does give me a much better idea of when to accelerate.

I see a lot of posts saying you should not start an active arm pull until you're in the right pec position but for me that a little late. I start pulling when it gets to my left pec, basically when my arm/elbow create a backwards "L". For me that's a little earlier than what I see most recommend but that's what gives me the best snap.
