I think BW's only point is that maybe this "linear pull" constraint is robbing people of power, and that we should drop the idea to see what happens. Of course this isn't orthodox advice, but I for one am going to try it!
Yes, you got it.
The more I think about it, there is no "J" at all.
The arm swings to the inside, down the line, back to the inside, just like any other athletic motion... So it is really a a flattened "C".
I messed around with this a little yesterday and have to say I am encouraged by the results. When trying to reach straight back and pull on a straight line I could do it but at times I almost felt like I was jamming myself or had to use to much arm to pull into my chest. I think that this happened when I reached back and was actually on the outside of the line so I was trying to go outside to inside which isn't efficient. When things went smooth reaching straight back I was probably right on line the whole time. Well yesterday I started my pull inside of the line. I felt like I could rotate faster and get the disc close to my chest a lot easier. As for spraying or not hitting my line at the beginning I was a little off but by the end of my session this wasn't a problem. From the right pec out everything was pretty much feeling the same. My last two throws of the day were like yeah that is it. Rotation felt great and I could feel some great snap. We will see how it goes. Hopefully I can hit the practice field tonight.
