Watch from 7 min mark to learn about reachback. Excellent lesson Simon. Also 10:15 to hear about shoulders.

Not sure where this turned into a bash on RoDeO form but that wasn't why I posted. Unbelievable!

The thing I was bringing up is that I keep hearing you shouldn't turn back to soon and yet these top throwers are doing just that so it's obviously misinformation out there on where power is tapped from. I've noticed this too as I throw that on short holes I don't really turn back much and then on long holes, or for distance I turn back more and sooner. I think there is a lot of leverage to tap into there amongst other things. All I know is Im getting almost an extra 100 feet by turning back more. It's like I can feel the potential greater that can be tapped into.

Seppo’s shoulders are roughly 90degrees to his hips. This means he has significant torsion to exert into the disc. Your shoulders are roughly parallel to your hips so that spring is sprung already, and unable to add to your throw.

Well, certainly angles and the moment you freeze a frame can either be telling or not. I do get shoulder and Hip separation. So it isn't a case of the "spring is sprung already". I may not have the same degree of separation as Seppo but I do get a fair amount. In time perhaps. I turn back more to get more torsional spring in my throw. I think thats why most distance throwers turn hack more for distance also.

I say this because I've noticed that if I turn back sooner rather than later I sacrifice some control for more distance and it's not even close. What are people's thoughts?
When I first called you Brodeo on this site, I thought you were my age or younger. Come on, man sir.

What do you think? Yes you lose control. Even if Mr. Size Queen gets his small baskets you still need to be accurate. What does a 600' drive get you without precision?

Fun fact? less than 1% of the disc golf population can throw that far.

Yes. For uncontrolled distance.

Im asking why people say not to turn back too soon. It seems to me it can't be about distance because many top throwers are turning back sooner than they normally do when going for distance.
See above. Distance, not precision [scoring] focused.

No to bolded. Yes, to the rest, ...for distance.

That's what I've been saying all along. Turn sooner coupled with turning rearward more= More distance but loss of control.

Cool.

Learn good form first.

Stop being dumb.

Look at your title someone spent real money on to make fun of you (not me, I'd take credit if I did).


I can crush a drive to toot my own horn. You know what I don't do very well? Putt. Do you know what makes you score well? Putting. EDIT: Or throwing your drives accurately enough that you don't need to be a great putter.

Why do you want to throw as far as possible but not be able to control it? What does that do for you? This isn't a dick swinging contest...I'll repeat this isn't a dick swinging contest. I lose to great putters that I can out drive constantly. Know why? They're better at scoring [golf] than I am. Do you know how to apply this distance properly with crosswinds and headwinds and tailwinds? Through trees? Good luck.

I actually hope you can somehow reach 600' one day, but always putt worse than I do.

The answer with throwing distance/ hard is to be as best as possible with the control. Then, it makes it easier to control 90% power shots and still have it go very far.

Cute. Great thread. Great posting everywhere on this site, thank you so much for your contributions

Why is it so hard to understand learning control and technique first followed by distance? Going from 180' to 300' or so makes sense as an early goal but beyond that you (every beginner) lose me. I know you just checked out TWs 500' thread, did he just instantly hope to throw that far? No, it took him years after learning technique.


People are spending their free time to try to help you, yet you **** all over them. I'm the angry voice of reason trying to tell you to listen to those people. Why is that so difficult for you?

Do you really think you deciphering YouTube videos in your own mind is above people that have dedicated hundreds or thousands of hours to this game? Do you think you can suddenly become Seppo or Simon or Paul through interpretive dance? Come on, man. Even a genuine genius would need guidance with a physical activity (NOT calling you one).
