Question Another OAT question

We may need to take all these OAT threads and lump them together in a sticky one day, but anyway...

So, I know I've got some OAT but it would be nice if there was a consensus as to the different degrees of OAT. I've noticed that my mids in field practice flutter very slightly yet visibly for about 3/4 of the flight ( ~260-280'). That's got to be better than the turn and burns from lots of OAT, right? Am I on my way to getting rid of the torque monster? That's what I'd like to know.

How do you know when your OAT is lessening?

Is it a good thing that I never get that flutter? I think it just means I am weak and incapable of OAT.

or that you have better form.

BD the best way to see if youre progressing in eliminating oat is to take vids and post them here for us all to scrutinize.

hmm from what i read id say youre working the oat out of your form. i think a good marker is how much farther you can throw your understable stuff, which is far less oat-forgiving than stable/overstable stuff.

Drive your putters until you dont see any flutter.

Crap, I forgot garublador was on vacation. I will say I'm fairly good at keeping the understable stuff from taking the "turn of no return" indication of OAT that's characteristic of rolling the wrist over. I think I'm getting there, my biggest problems right now are this slight flutter and I'm throwing a hair nose up (again, old habits, yada yada).

regarding OAT ....and this one really has been bugging me...I get wickedest snap out of my worst formed throws/ seems my perfect and most powerful snap zone produces an OAT release!...yeah when I OAT the hell out of a drive theres tons of snap and the discs goes a long way but way flippy and way right.....when I keep it straight and smooth..not so much snap and way less distance potential. I have had numerous injuries to my knees and ankles so spinning with any precision gets tricky...I mention this cause Ive tried to adjust my release point by turning my body etc...but the spin gets hairy on my kness....Seems I am stuck with drives in the 300s max. Frustrating...I seem to do better at standstill stuff than tee pad drives....I'm not trying to cheat the disc..I know what poor form is..I just can't get that desired snap on a smooth flat release...when I do this I lose potential distance.
