Avery had this bar on the disc to measure spin rate and JR from DGR said it was 19.7 RPS or almost 1200 RPM on a 500' Teebird shot.

Probably the best advice I ever got from Avery was... "It is most important to lock your wrist when throwing, very little movement only slight wrist bend back and forth. Never pre-cock the wrist, trying to spin the disc is very different from throwing the disc. I grip the disc very firm and tight when throwing, you never want the disc to slip out early or any other time. Nice firm grip. Small amount of wrist extension. but at the right time."
