Default Jerm

Was just curious. Was talking about it with a friend earlier. Im not even trying to flick his type of distance lol. Im just a little guy. Im sure being tall and lanky gives you an advantage in distance whether it be backhand or forehand. I just assume he flicks farther than anyone else and curious as to where he maxes out.

Jerm flicked first run surges for long and straight shots i believe, forces for shots that needed to go more right

He flicks buzzes, drones, and zones for shorter stuff

Like stated above jerm has the skillset to flick anything he pleases

This is 100% correct. which explains his ability to flick understable plastic.

I have been working emulate his throwing style for about 6 months now. So far, I'm really hitting a wall/plateau of about 350' on the upper end (usually closer to 300').
I would love to play a round with Big Jerm and get his feedback on how to break through that wall. I've actually started regressing to my old style when I need serious d, and throwing like Jeremy on shots under 300'.

So, Big Jerm, I know you pop on here occasionally...if you're coming to Santa Cruz to play in the Steady Eddy, I would be happy to put you up in my guest room in exchange for a few tips.

3rd on this. I have played with ultimate players that can flick a Sonic dead straight for a decent distance, it blows my mind. In the tournaments I played that Big Jerm was at in NC, it seemed like he was always tossing around an ultimate disc or understable putter between rounds.

Default big jerm

Sent him a message and he said he can flick it between 475-500! Dude is a monster. Before prodigy he said he flicked first run surges and beat in forces. Whoever said surge and force was correct.
