I'm assuming many of our top pros would say something similar.

Touch shots are obviously a different story.
But wait...what...I thought I am just supposed to play with 3 discs??? Which 3, I don't know...

Is it a lack of basic athleticism that would prevent someone going full out and maintaining form?

I've seen enough "rate my form" vids to know there there are a lot of out of shape, awkward folks who wanna be DG heroes and throw 400+. They just don't have the tools.

There are limitations up the wazoo - condition, age, agility, coordination, etc.

It was an Amateur player at worlds in Iowa, back when they had both Pro and Amateur at same course but different days at the courses in the area. Anyhow somebody I played with who went there told me of an Amateur who was using a X step and was throwing further then the rest of the field and further then some of the lower ranks of Pros. I do not know who made it but he did not do the best due to his bad putting. He was a skinny guy who was tall was all they could remember.

Who were you playing with that can throw 700' but only use 70% power? Were you playing with Garrett Gurthie the Innova Pro?

Almost a X step but not the more modern version where the one leg fully crosses the other one, it is only inline with the front leg.
