I've shaped some crazy lines FH with beat Rocs and Comets, but I need to clean up my FH form again, even though I no longer truly need a FB for FH, its still not what it was and isn't how I would like it.
Yep my dads is smooth and first starts full arm extended then bends at elbow a tad near the body then finishes full extended for his full power forehand. It is a power version of the slight bent elbow as that end part gives the disc some tiny bit extra power/snap but the first bend in is not necessary as one can start bent, yes my dad can throw Archangel and a Beast Forehand. I have also seen my dad throw Beaded and non beaded forehand and can due to how smooth he is in the forehand.

im not admitting to anything but im not denying anything either

however i tried to google and scour but couldnt find exactly what i was looking for

and ive read tons of mixed results and not sure what to believe

my anecdotal evidence says moar os and shorter or is it user error i would be interested in the science behind it however no one really seems to know which is odd to me

tryna see if anyone has any links
