and honestly still isn't real clear to me as a lot of mixing of techniques and "styles" seem to be a factor given the exact player.

I think of the Swedish style like a hockey slap-shot and "American" or whatever as a tennis backhand.

My $.02 is that the main difference is that it feels much less like a hammer pound, and more like "hold onto the disc for a short / huge hit".

Check out where dave's hand is on the disc vs. a bent arm:



He's close to 3:00 when they're at 12:00



He's also substantially lower with the disc.

I've always admired Feldberg's throwing style, it looks to me like it is a very repeatable motion. I have tried to imitate his style in the past, but I can't seem to throw it very far; I think I tend to strong arm it. Maybe i will try to work on it again in a field.

Can someone post a sequence of what a "chuck" looks like?

I don't understand how you would throw a flat, or an anhyzer shot with that "straight arm" style.

It's all the same to me ... hammer, bent elbow, Swedish ... build momentum and get a powerful hit.

I can't speak for anybody else, but I was able to alter the disc angle to flat pretty reasonably by making sure to come into the core flat - then it becomes about spine tilt and trajectory to get over to anhyzer.

And flipping discs.

That's on point from my experience. Feldy's style is very much about the "everything is a hyzer" mentality

My arm tends to be straighter when I'm throwing with my standard 2 step run up. When I'm throwing from a standstill for upshots and shorter drives, my elbow ends up being much more bent. With the straight arm approach the power seems to be coming from the big shoulder muscles and the arm swings like a pendulum. The disc "speed" comes from the pendulum, but the disc spin comes from the wrist flick at the very end of my throw. My throw only works when I follow through correctly. If I'm trying to throw on a hyzer angle, I try to bend slightly forward at the waist, if I'm trying to throw on an anhyzer angle, I'm arching my back just a bit. I have no idea if I have "good" form or not. My throw has evolved because of injury and body shape more than any conscious choices on my part. Like a lot of people, some days it works pretty good, some days not. And yes, this type of throw strongly favors hyzer releases.

I dabbled with something similar to this style. I learned to hyzerflip understable discs (comet, valkyrie, beast etc.) like this because with my normal form I couldn't put enough hyzer on some discs to let them fly straight. It worked well, but I gave it up and now my form is better so I can adjust to throw different stabilities of discs.
