I was just saying to a new player that he is lucky today that there are good throwing resources on the Internet. When I was learning the stock answer when you turned something over was that "you have too much snap and need something more overstable" even if your throw only went 150 ft. I got to spend a dozen years tearing up my shoulder torquing the living **** out of Vipers just so they could go nowhere and the only advice I was getting was "throw a Ram" or "get a heavier one." Now I have so many years of muscle memory from all those years throwing like crap that it is next to impossible for me to not roll my wrist when I throw. So there are two sides to the "good old days."
