Default RHBH max 325 feet, avg 300 feet

Accuracy is decent but I just can't get more distance even if I try to rip it in an open field. I've always been good at throwing things but I guess disc golf is too much about the technique. Help me reach my potential distance. Thanks

moha your form looks very clean and smooth. Kudos! You appear to be very young (I could be wrong) but you will likely make distance gains with age. Just keep your form clean and smooth and keep playing and practicing. don't forget to practice putting!

If that was me, and I watched a video I would tell myself to get more snap at the hitpoint, it looks like you are pulling the disc through instead of letting it rip out of your hand. It's hard to explain, look up snap and read some articles on the forums. Or maybe someone could help him out with a link or two on this "elusive" thing we call snap. It's hard to tell how firm you are gripping the disc as well in a video, you could experiment with different grips and different pressure.

It's tough to see much from that angle, except that it looks like you're getting very little leverage on the disc. Focus on getting your elbow driven out in front and then extending the disc from your chest way out in front of you.

Lots of good advice and videos in there to get you going.

The two biggest things I see are you are not getting your elbow forward and you're hugging yourself on your reach back. I hate that term.

Turn your shoulders back, don't fold your arm across your chest.

I'm right there with you (though much older and heavier ). Been wondering myself lately how to get to the next level. One thing I'm hoping to change just a little bit is my hand position as I pull through. Let's see if I can describe this correctly... If you pause your video at the point of maximum reach back, and check it (frame by frame if possible) through the pull, you'll see your grip stays toward the front half of the disc throughout. I could be completely wrong (please, experts, help here...), but I think the folks with the best snap (hit, rip, etc) seem to get further back, to the outside of the disc, as they pull through the chest. If the disc were a clock with 12 being the intended line of flight, they seem to get that grip around to 9 o'clock, whereas you and I are closer to 10:30. Does that make sense?

edit: while I was typing, HyzerUB posted an awesome clip...compare!

I think I know what you mean. I've thought about trying different grips because with drivers it usually feels like it's slipping out instead of ripping out. I guess I have to experiment more. With putters and midranges I get the "snap" feeling.

Thank you . I'm only 27 and my stomach is still growing.

If you mean my left arm, I've recently started forcing it to be closer to my body (but I might be overdoing it at the moment). It used to be way too "free" and it felt like it was creating more drag. I've been wondering about my elbow opening too early as well. Thanks for the tips.
