I'm realizing now the sand in my slo-mo perfectly displays "kicking the ball" with the plant foot. I push the sand and fling it forward when I plant.

My throw has never been better. Put an Aviar past 350 feet for the first time yesterday and it flew hyzer the entire time.
My discs fly differently now. The flip is later and there is less of it. I'm assuming I'm generating a lot more spin. My flight times feel like they've doubled.

The "feel" that surprised me most is the disconnection of the chest and arm. Rounding sort of "connects" everything together and it can feel powerful. In a "good" throw, it almost feels like the arm shoots ahead of the chest into the power pocket and then your chest catches up and compresses into the shoulder at the hit while your elbow extends. Does this sound familiar to you guys?

Glad you asked this. I was practicing short effortless sidearm shots yesterday and was getting the same feeling of the arm floating forward after the plant and then shoulders catching up for the hit. When I throw full power, I don’t have the same feeling.

More spin = more gyroscopic stability = more resistant to change in turn/fade.

It's also the reason why people will throw more OS discs on forehand: forehands naturally generate less spin than backhand so discs will flip easier.

Yeah.

Rounding pins the arm against the chest so there is no power pocket or redirection or float or levitation or lag into your center. Everything just slams on the gas from the get go and peters out.

On "good" throws there is a float or levitation or lag guiding the disc into the power pocket/center loading/setting up for the launch to explode the whip.

Amazing. I know you’ve said this before but it definitely never clicked mentally until pretty much yesterday.

Funny that my arm figured it out before my head did.

Do you focus on pushing the disc back when it want to start moving forward?

No definitely not.

If anything the arm moves faster than I expected.
