Maybe an accelerometer (one from a cell phone, nearly microscopic) attached to the disc would give some good data.

I was mainly talking about full power shots, otherwise I totally agree.

I was just hoping this had already been done, and like, Steve West would show up with a bunch of graphs and data, lol. I am kind of surprised it hasn't been done yet.

I think at a big event, it would even be fun for the spectators to watch pros throw and have a board up that displays speed, release angle, spin, trajectory, etc.

The one event I have seen a radar gun at, it was a pretty big draw (and money maker).

Doppler radar is used to measure the spin of golf balls. The software might need to be tweaked, but the same equipment should be able to be used.

Fyi: the spin rate on a disc can be changed by the grip alone with zero modification of the throw mechanics... you know, just like a baseball.

Yo roggen, quoting him and not contributing to the OPs discussion is only diluting the thread more. ODRB doesn't give a **** about your point (however right you may or may not be)...just sayin'

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."
