When you say snapping late enough at which point in the swing is the disc supposed to be releasing from your hand 9 oclock as the forearm is trying to go forward or at 12 oclock when your arm is completey unfolded and starting to follow through?

Hey no problem man.. I guess what I was getting at is premature release. Sometimes I find a bad grip or early release right at the end of the throw ends up popping the nose. Another simple thing to do is throw lower.. Haha try aiming at the bottom of the pole on a flat shot that helps me keep the nose down. Throw a Comet right at the base and it will gain height on its own, you can also practice gentle/ subtle anhyzers..

Try and throw flat and nose down with a touch of anhyzer.. A great way to duplicate that is any shot with a 20'+ elevation change where you are automatically throwing downwards.. See how much easier it turns over and how much further it goes.

If you really! want a disc to turnover on a high anhyzer you still need to point the nose down and snap your wrist later so the weight is further around.

I've been playing one disc rounds with my putter lately, and having a blast.

I've never been much of a putter thrower from the tee, but I can now hit a solid 235' straight as an arrow. I'm hoping to up that over the next few months.

I feel it's really helping my form to put the drivers and mids away for awhile.

that's my plan this season, most of our local courses are filled with holes that measure 187ft to 275ft anyways and I feel like if you have solid form it shouldn't take anything more then a putter or a Comet to get to the basket anyways.

FWIW I also found "Discing down adventures" inspiring.

If you're still having nose up issues, consider your weight shift. That's one of my biggest issues when I get rusty. My first few distance shots tend to stall and hyzer out untip I start shifting my weight forward a little more aggressively.

I like reading through that too, do you think it's possible to take in too much video watching and instructional information about how to throw backhand?

I mean I've been playing long enough to know what I'm supposed to do to throw a backhand properly, I'm wondering if I'm just overthinking everything about a backhand.

I just got done playing a local course and literally shot twice as bad as I did last year.

Absolutely I find really I can only think about adjusting one or two things at a time. The trick is figuring out what to concentrate on first.. A lot of times when I start learning better technique I lose of some footage but gain accuracy and after a few weeks I gain some footage

I don't play from about the end of October until April, and what I do play in the winter is platform tennis. While it's lots of fun and while I favor my backhand in that game, it absolutely promoted poor disc golf form.
How?
Rounding (I think that's what they call it). In platform tennis, unlike regular tennis, your shot motion is more compact. And there are a lot of shots you make without turning your trunk, but more by using reflex and elbow flex. I started off the season by reaching across my body to throw because I was so used to doing just that on the platform tennis court.
I came across this video by sidewinder22:

This video changed my world because the idea of a one-armed hammer throw is easy to visualize, and it gives me something to think about as I'm ready to throw (turn at the waist and don't reach across my body).
Wildly erratic throws are down almost 100%
