I practice throw from my neighbor's paved driveway into my backyard between the two houses. Aside from hitting my house about 10 times now....he had mowed and there was some dead grass on the pavement. I slipped on it on the LAST throw of the day, and shank one right into an outside light on his garage, shattering the glass and bending the metal frame. An hour of glass cleanup that day, and I just wired up his new light last weekend

A buddy of mine was putting in my basement (we can get 20-25'), shanks one into a liquor bottle on my bar top, which shatters on the concrete floor. It was Fireball, which is very sticky when it dries. Had to scrape/mop like 10 times before I convinced myself I'd cleaned up all the bits of glass from the bottle.

This is starting to unlock more understanding for me.

I'm working on the one leg drill and keeping the frame. Going slow and not thinking about doing anything with the elbow.

What else can be done to master this?

Have the right balance and posture. If your balance isn't aligned right, then you'll be telegraphing your mass to a point that isn't supported so you'll have no choice but to collapse or tilt or yank the shot or something. If you are balanced then the frame will stay as you move.

Best way to tell is to video yourself in the drills or positions, and try doing things that would expose the poor balance rather than just swinging on angles that visually look easier/better.

Swing a bat, hammer, something heavy - with 2 hands and then 1 hand. Feel and refine the leverage.

Throw a basketball under hand at a brick wall with your OLD, One-Step and X-Step.

Yeah I like to use a bat or something similar because it exaggerates what the outside of the disc is doing and you can really FEEL it happening.

Good tips, thank you fellas

I used to think the disc had to be very close (like a couple of inches away from the right peck. The frame idea makes me think this is incorrect. Can it be out in front more?

The deeper you get in at the power pocket, the better.

just grabbed a disc and I can see what you mean. I was using a towel and thinking it could be out further.

I do want to pull through lower tho. Having it up high feels awful.
