    I feel the heavy disc; thank you everyone.

    So I'm just making sure I reach out away from my body as much as I can. Feel: Too much out wayyy too much i'm gonna yoink it! Real: I'm reaching slightly more out. I think it's probably just 'wide rail'. If you search that on this forum or google you'll find a lot of info on the topic but...

    Small update dump and brag Yesterday I threw a dx boss 440' on flat with some light swirly winds. Half my premium plastic bag I can get 400' Accuracy is the best it's ever been. There's been a lot of experimenting to get here so I'll just chime in with the last couple things that pushed me...

    [MVP] Uplink -Midrange (complete historical records of its awesomeness)

    probably the only disc in my bag besides putters that if I lost I would immediately replace instead of trying something new in the slot. Immensely perfect for what it does.

    You could try playing catch with a glitch/ultrastar

    Appreciate it. Closed plant is fixed with a swing thought it's one of those things that sneaks back in Bracing better is one of the things I am actively working on. One of the ideas in my head is that a larger stagger final step will help. Trying to get into the pocket currently breaks the...

    A trick I'm using to make sure It doesn't go away is to make sure I really feel the pendulum before I start my x step. Towards that goal the elephant walk to start was serendipitous but it's working great for consistency. I'm gonna keep doing it for now.

    For the curious https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=biWbdu-E6UE I fell into some old bad habits focusing on not doing instead of doing but here's me today 330' diamond 171g hyzerturnover and a 300' teebird3 flat linedrive. First gonna work on keeping my weight a little more towards the target I...

    Sometimes there's a couple frames in pro slow mo footage where their face goes from being relaxed to looking like a powering up dbz character during the rip. After looking for examples it seems to be not very common or at least an exaggeration so I think I just read into it too much as an excuse...

    Just realized it's a 2 parter. To go along with that I needed to not attempt to accelerate the disc at all. AT ALL. Unsure if that will change as it does appear in slow mo's that people let the demon out eventually but I do not want to be messing with that right now and I'd advise anybody...

    My current guess is that I will now see significant input to output changes based on my formwork and generating momentum horizontally and vertically. Of which I've worked on a lot in the past but I blew way past it all with my arm.

    The one simple trick for me I kinda knew all along. I was throwing too hard. I started throwing less hard and that was good but I was still throwing too hard. I started throwing even less hard and that was better but I was still throwing too hard. Repeat.

    So when i was training this at first I had to exaggerate and basically no grip the disc and I eventually I could feel myself try to hold on a little but it was too late. I threw nothing but slips/early releases. I think right now I've found a good middleground of starting grip. It took a...

    adding to the why I think it was difficult for me: No single explanation of an aspect of the throw gave enough clarity in instruction. It was only through the culmination and similarities of ways to express the thing that I found clarity in how to internalize and implement it. This took a long...

    ohboyohboyohboy. I have to share with someone. So that is what the throw is supposed to feel like. It's distinctly different. Feels weightless until suddenly I'm smashing a literal (metaphorical) hammer. Shout outs to ace it disc golf for a more approachable backhand instruction; SW22 for...
