You're wayyyyyy over thinking this **** honestly.

From that first response just go have fun and slowly learn. There is no magic and just enjoy the time on the course.

Guess I just want to get over a hump. I did throw my best round ever at my home course a couple weeks ago. Everything just went well that day, I even hit a birdie shot from about 100' out (pure luck) after smacking a tree on my approach. Felt amazing walking off the course.

It's addicting to say the least.

With time the addiction will build consistency and then you will learn discs etc if you stay true to the DGCR ways grasshopper..

So far I like you and there is hope! The addiction is obviously real look at us all here?

I'm pretty sure he's also said that the sound is a misnomer and isn't important. Maybe he evolved on the position?

There are two sounds. One is a pop that you hear when your fingers snap together as the disc pulls out. Unimportant but satisfying. The other is a whizz that you hear from the speed of the disc flying through the air. Matters only in that it tells you just who fast your disc is spinning.

Somewhere, Sidewinder 22 has a graphic of the path the disc goes on as you pull through. Without going into any detail, that path puts the disc on a route that makes it torque out of your hand. The disc acts like a lever (think German grenade on a stick, not my observation) and spins out hard. That is how the "rip" occurs. If you throw an axe and try to hang onto the handle as it comes forward, well, you can't, it pulls out of your hand. If you think of a spot across the disc from your hand, if you swivel that spot around like the head of the axe, it's going to pull out of your hand, and forcefully.

If you can hold on to the disc throughout a whole throw then I think your pull line is too rounded and ur just swinging ur arm. The "rip" is the disc tearing out of your hand and happens because of the whip-like directional change that happens at full arm extension. Basically you accelerate the disc until the point where your hand can no longer continue moving in that direction and the disc pops out. I finish my follow through with a white knuckle clenched fist and I am consciously squeezing the disc right when it rips out.
