Feldy throws the golf club around 25min. Some great nuggets in here, but also some BS like "keep the head down":


I agree with Avery on like 98%:

I looked for the Gateway Training Wizard and saw some around 269 g but more important to me was that this is a putter and the grip would be different. What I wanted to use was a wider rim so I grabbed two discs I had (Avenger SS) and then hot glued them together and, as an extra measure, rolled duct tape along the edge to make sure they would stay together. This weighed in at 348 grams.

You do get a heavier feel but it's still not a sledge hammer. I thought I had an aha moment looking at my stand still video when I did figure out was that to get the lower arm extended all the way out by the hit point I had to accelerate a lot quicker than I had been. Like putting the pedal all the down and goosing it right from the power pocket instead of accelerating to the hit. Otherwise the elbow was more out front and to the right and still bent and not fully extended at the 10 o'clock point. However, that didn't translate to the field, though. With my regular discs constant acceleration to the hit I had further distance.

So I'm not sure if this is a good tool or not. I did save about $20 by DIY instead of buying the Training Wizard. I'll play around with it some more. Oh, and I was able to get it out to a little over 100 feet. Heavy disc.

The Aerobie Epic is the most hammer like disc.

It's epic in more ways than one. I love how you literally fold and bend it to your will.

I've been wondering if something like this, https://www.rotometals.com/pure-lead-cast-disc-99-9/ , taped/glued to the underneath plate of the wing near the rim where the 'nose' of the disc would be when you throw it would be worth it.

It's around 1lb, small sized, and I think would replicate where the weight of a disc is. Would def. Ruin the flight but could potentially let us feel what we need to, while holding a real disc.

Not sure it work well or give you much feedback. Would probably be good for grip though.

A disc with moving parts in it like water or little lead balls or something telescopic like this would probably work better to feel control and sudden funneling of the weight targetward:

Look at the skin on Paul's elbow pulled taut by centrifugal force and about to whip out down the forearm to the hand/disc when the wrist passes ahead of the elbow.

Anyone got any results from throwing something heavy or any result period. How did you fix this issue?

Definitely helped me feel how to use the body and ground and let go of the arm. Swinging the hammer in slow motion out from the chest also helped a lot with feeling how the wrist needs tension to leverage the disc/hammer.

I'm just now realizing how to add power this way. I was throwing with a mostly loose arm. Now I'm able to fire that forearm out. Feels powerful but it's hard to focus on my target if I'm thinking about that lately. Does it eventually become natural? Do you swing with a loose arm until you hit 400 and then start adding power? Do you use it on short shots when you don't have a run-up?
