So what do you change? Height of release and velocity?

Yes to both. I have been throwing a Frisbee for a long time. Getting a disc to the basket from 50ft out is not really challenging my putt. I do spin putt, so maybe that accounts for some of this.

I think the “circle” should be extended to 40’.

And that's why I'll continue to jump. I keep the arm motion the same, and all the extra velocity I need comes from the forward motion. Respect to those who connect from outside while planted, but it aint me. I've never had my putt questioned, but I know my disc is out of the hand before I fall forward.

The ADGT had a 50ft circle. That's a long way to pace out, but I wouldn't be too mad about it. 40ft wouldn't bother me at all, because that's where I usually jump from. Between 33ft and 40ft seems too close and I don't usually bother pacing it out.

I agree - I know a bunch of people that step/jump putt a lot.

But I know only 1 person that does it alot and is friggin amazing. 90%+ of people seem to just do it because they can.

I'm not a "ban jump putt" guy. If you are legally putting, I don't care how you do it. I personally think there are too many moving parts for it to be effective for AM's, but with practice I am sure it could be a good weapon.

For the record, I don't change much about my putt, simply throwing it further and higher.

I agree with moving back to 40 Feet and that could help with People doing or worst case PDGA could ban the jump after put or Step after putt, but it is cool to see the pro who can do it right for either style of over the mark zone outside of roughly 35 feet.

I would say for most Amateur Division players, some Amateurs who have the ability to eventually be a pro at at least a Regional touring level Can probably get a step after putt or Jump after putt to work.

At about 37-40 feet wind dependent and how I am doing putting with regular putter I am putting with my mild OS approach disc/windy day putter/driving putter but actually trying to putt with approach disc back to about 50-55 feet being wind dependent and how open my put is I am using approach disc to putt with from beyond 50-55 feet to about 65-70 feet where I am approaching with the approach disc. Beyond 70 feet I am using a midrange or using the approach disc the way one would a mild OS driving putter.

What is ADGT? American Disc Golf Tour? American Disc Golf Tournament?

Yes. It was one of the several rule changes they had.
