^ I think slowplastic nailed it. At some point, throwing higher doesn't get you any more distance. But that all depends on how hard you are able to throw. For that reason, most of us won't be throwing nearly as high as McBeast for our own max distance.

Someone on these forums (I think SW22?) posted a good way to think about this relationship. I'll take the liberty of paraphrasing it here...poorly. For distance lines, when the disc is at the apex of the flight, it should still be moving forward. The disc angle at the apex should be nose down, and neutral or slight anhyzer.

If the disc isn't moving forward at the apex, the shot has stalled out.
