I posted a video for form critique a few months ago, I don’t think I’ve improved much in that time!

Thumb along the top of the pipe and four fingers holding onto the bottom. So I guess that would be in line with your arm.

Instead of PVC pipe you can make one from an old flashlight. These LED-flashlights are cheap and easy to find. The can also take a beating and often come with safety straps.

I removed the batteries and added magnet to the bottom.
A screw in a plug is a great choice since you can just screw it up or down to make the tip be closer to, or further away, from the magnet. Easy to modify in that way.

UPDATE: The cap flew off. Shouldn't have been a surprise, but as I had been using it to warm up for months, I had gotten used to the idea that the cap was jammed on really well.

As I go to replace it with another cap and bolt, it occurs to me that the only end that really needs to be glued is the "outside" end. Centrifugal forces don't cause the cap on the end nearer my hand to fly off. And anyway, I hold the barrel between my fingers and cradle the nearer end in my palm anyway.

This is still a great warm-up tool. I've found it be be a much better indicator than the flight towel.

Rock on! (and glue the end!).

Segue from the prior post... I want to put a 4-5” extension on mine (on the magnet side) to mimic the goal of trying to fling the opposite end of the disc. Currently, where the screw sits in the hand is where the front end of the disc would be.

Can someone please post a clip of using this device in the disc golf context? Want to see how you hold it and where it hits.

Correct. You can also turn the screw around so the the threaded end or the screwdriver end is towards the magnet. The screwdriver end is bigger so the magnet pulls on it harder.
