Default Quick OAT fixes.

So I played a couple rounds yesterday

They were really,really horrible,I hadn't played in 3-4 days which for me is a long time,and I had OAT on my backhand and forehand,and it was just embarrassing

Anything you can do mid-round to try and quickly diagnose and repair ?

Reduce wrist roll and break your throw down into it's most basic components, i.e. cut out or slow down your x-step dramatically.

I'll usually start throwing my Ion or Fuse all over the place b/c they hate OAT, so if I can get those flying right and translates 10 fold to everything else.

That's what I was trying to do,with the fuse in particular,but I just couldn't get it going.


I guess some days the explanation is just that I suck

Consistency takes a long time to develop. Without a video it's pretty hard to say where the OAT was coming from. It's probably a combination of rusty timing, wrist roll, and weird shoulder plane and follow through.

that's code for: there are no quick fixes. Throwing flippy discs on hyzers is better than resorting to super overstable stuff though.

Yeah, it's hard to 180 when the OAT monster comes calling. I just try and throw with as little muscle as possible, getting all smooth and ish.

Yeah,that makes sense.

My bag is actually more stable/understable based than anything.

Usually,or at least i'd like to think my form is pretty clean,yesterday was just bad.

It may be the quickest way to fix it but it's definitely the worst way. I'm still trying to fix my form from being a stupid noob and buying a boss. haha

Interesting topic Connor. I would say to shorten your stroke and try to put a little more spin on your shots. Shortening your stroke will limit whatever you're doing wrong and the extra spin will make your shots more stable. HTH
