The harder you can throw, the higher you can throw and still have the disc carry. So if I'm trying to get a long carrying shot I will throw a bit higher than normal, but not as high as Mike C for example because the disc would stall out for me.

Basically if the disc is hitting the ground while still moving forward, and it results in a slide ahead or a skip, then it has more velocity that it could have used in the air...so more height would have helped. If the disc is fading out and dropping to the side, hitting the ground fairly softly, then you probably threw it a good height. At a certain point you'll notice the disc stalling and not going as far when you throw it higher than that ideal trajectory. Again...when you can throw harder then throwing higher is more natural.
