I think you want to release the disc on the plane you want it to initially fly on. How you get there, conceptually, should just be up to what you find comfortable. If it helps you, you do you.

However, if you tell someone to think of it as an L, I can see that becoming much more confusing than trying to release on a straight line, and result in more errors. I do think, if anything, a power release if kind of like a "j" in that you might pull the disc closer to your body slightly before the "straight" release. I think the idea is to try to not pull it around your body, as this will mess with the trajectory quite a bit.

Regardless, I try not to spend too much time thinking of the tiny mechanical/technical aspects of "the throw." I've just gotten comfortable over the years without watching videos, clinics, etc. Again, you do you!

I think Sidewinder22 has already solved this one with his graphic of the disc in motion. He's posted it many times, for example here:

Looks like an arc followed by a straight line to me.

Did you mean "literally" literally or figuratively? I'm sad that it does mean both.

Literally - you can speak to your phone now and tell it to spell a word for you. I was going to say all he had to do was start typing it in google, but the spelling was so bad that doesn't work.

Ah, it all reminds me of the thought experiments used to try to explain Einsteinian physics.

The O.P. is talking about the disc in relation to the thrower's upper body, not in relation to the rest of the world, or the thrower's position in the rest of the world.

Not particularly useful, or useful at all, but from that perspective, he has a point. The disc's path before release is an L.....and the rest of the world is spinning around him.

Sing, Sang, Sung, Song. Apophony changing verb tense along with the original noun.
Even if this is the term he meant to use, its not in the correct context. Clearly the OP meant to use the term "Epiphany" and ironically lucked out that this is an actuall word. He obviously was not referencing alternate spellings of random terms when he pointed out his sudden realization using the word "Apophany".

There are no straight lines in nature.
Of course there are. The shortest distance between 2 points is an example.

I realized that he meant Epiphany, but since Apophony is actually a word i gave the definition and tried to fit it into his explination.... it seemed apropos.
