He said he found this after he injured his right arm and started throwing lefty. I have a friend that does something similar.


When I watch him throw off(left) handed, he rounds. It’s not as refined and doesn’t result in as much distance, but I can understand how someone limited to a rounding throw might conclude that was THE answer.

That’s what I see here.

In this GIF, are her hips leading the rotation or as you say turning because of follow through?

Now you are getting it. Her hips move as part of the weight shift.

If it were a spin move, there would be no weight shift.

Have you been following this whole thread? I have been saying all along that her hips rotate as part of the weight shift- that it is dynamic.

I still have a lot to improve upon. This isnt the best representation as it was 19 degrees out this morning and My feet were cold and I was wearing 4 layers of clothes and coats.

Was throwing 300-350 on about 8 shots before I packed it in, was too cold, couldn't get stretched out.

This was my last throw of 8 this morning. It kept turning till it almost landed. It's a Jade, speed 9 disc. It's my favorite driver right now even though it can get too flippy when Im fully warmed up.This one measured 350 feet.

but they don't lead. To the extent possible, the body is moving linearly forward along the disc flight line.

If it was a spin throw, you wouldn't have a weight shift.

you can even see it in Simon's 360 throw. He sets his lead foot, locks his hips, pushes forward with his rear leg, the disc follows a generally linear path from reach back to release.

The body is doing two things- it's moving in a linear position forward and it's also rotating around an axis.
