I would love to see some physics read-outs on these new discs that keep popping up in various stages of "coming soon!" - on what the 3 to 5 spot does to a disc.

I feel like if I did a low reach back like Will advocates that I would throw hyzer every time. Thoughts?

Interesting how his shoulders were more open as a kid. I suspect it has to do with getting bigger and wider shoulders. Could also be more anhyzer.

It's called weight forward or throwing from the front leg. Most players struggle with that and throw off the back leg and a low reachback in that case will more than likely go noob hyzer.

My money is that as he filled out, he had the ability to use more of his linear plant momentum and little less of the rotational, which allows for a little more of a straight pull through while the shoulders are aligned.

He's definitely the gold standard for closed shoulder timing now.

Absurd that he was out driving me by 11.... but not for long, I'm calling out 11 year old Wiggins. I'm coming for you kid!!

That's pretty impressive.

We have a young girl in our area that's 15. She's can throw 400' or so. Only been playing a year and a half.

Seems like when a person comes from one of these "areas" where they actually have bombers it's easier to pick up? I had a friend that moved to CO and he said his local club has like 10 people that can throw 500.

Would a person who can throw 500 ft in higher elevation and then goes closer to sea level lose distance? Or a guy who can throw 500 at sea level be able to throw farther the higher elevation he goes?

Humans/animals instinctively learn by mimicking. If you are surrounded by talent, odds are better you will pick things up. Or you can watch a lot of youtube.

Likely. There's a reason footballs and baseballs travel further at Denver stadiums. Less dense air. I'm pretty sure I could throw over a mile on the moon.

Some of these comments are funny. Not being a dick but you guys get way to focused on the exact body positions. He is athletic with every motion. How and where he opens things don't matter as long as it's moving forward with the disc.
