I have one of these and it's fantastic.

Gave this a try and I'm definitely not a fast learner.

Trying to go slow with putters but I'm clearly very off. I don't feel anything and seem to be off balance and doing something very awkward with my arm to get even a little snap.

Sometimes these things eventually click for me, so I'll just keep giving it 10 min a day

Play catch speed. Your body is going to have to slow way, way down to let the angles develop.

Could be a lot of things. Most likely your wrist is bent back and you are not ejecting the disc forward.

The trick is to create an arc where you are grip locking on purpose and the disc goes straight.

Try a flatter pull across your chest, forget about trying to get more snap from starting low.. No fancy legwork just a shift from back to front. Your body is probably leading too much. Keep your arm at shoulder height draw into your Center chest slow and just add a bit of snap right there! in the pocket as you point your elbow right of the basket curl your hand an extra 15 degrees and then let your elbow unload. That's when I shift my body weight from back to front.

I'm not a form guy but that's as far as I am with these mechanics just throwing my putters a bit better but I'm pooping it with drivers it's different timing then what I've been doing for years. Someone smarter may have a different opinion but that's what I have figured out.

Thanks for great video and thread!!
I am new in these forums. I've learned a lot already.
The wall drill that Danny Lindahl shows in below video (at 9.30 min) seem to be totally wrong then right?

That is correct.

Paul McBeth would put his hand through the wall, as would Ricky Wysocki, Nikko, Ulibari, Simon, etc etc

The narrow linear pull is the biggest lie in disc golf. Almost none of the top 20 does it.

Yeah, Danny was doing the wall drill incorrectly. You’re supposed to do the drill at the end of the wall, so the arc can swing where the wall would be. Still a great drill for straightening out issues with rounding.

How do you go with the grip pressure Bradley? Do you gradually build it to hit or keep same pressure throughout the throw?

I haven't been able to get my arc to my front side yet but sometimes feel like the disc slips a little when it's more on the front side.
