I'd assume Paul's mechanics are similar but I'm not a huge throw analysis guy.... I sure found that image helpful though to gain some distance and improve timing.

Words in documents have fallen on hard times in much of our current American culture but here is a link to the old article on Discgolfreview-- "Distance Secrets by Dave Dunipace". This was an early version of what he describes in the video.

A few years back, I compiled, rearranged, and edited this article for Dave based on a free flowing discussion on the old PDGA Message boards. If you like words maybe this will help you, but video and pictures are also great to see what it actually looks like.

Full DISClosure-- even after spending untold hours discussing, dissecting, analyzing, and field work trying to apply the ideas in this article I don't think I ever really figured it out. I made a few changes, but it never drastically improved my distance. That is probably mostly due to user error- age, lack of athletic talent, noodle-armness... I hope you have more success

Put a ball in your hand. Rotate your forearm so that the palm is facing out, thumb down. Throw the ball using your backhand disc motion. Try whipping it from the pocket (back of hand at the chest). Try again to throw from reach back with shoulder rotated away from the target, through the pocket.

That motion of throwing a ball has 100% transformed how I look at the backhand throw. Excellent advice for anyone trying to get the feel of what the lats to the triceps do in the throw, and really for the whole body.
