(RHBH) It was hard to measure since it was off line quite a bit, but I'd say it went around 350'. I don't understand that. Is it because I might actually get some wrist extension or what?

JR - I know I don't have late acceleration. I just don't have much acceleration at all I don't think. I feel like I am going pretty steady from the get go. I accelerate quickly but then I'm maxed out for most of my pull. I watch guys throw all the time and they have much more force behind their throw.
I don't know if this is a good idea or not, but I've been working on curling my wrist in toward my body as soon as I start the pull. My thought is that it will make the disc closer to my body and keep my speed down until a bit later, as well as get more of a whipping action. So far I haven't noticed any improvement. I'm also going to work on not taking the disc so far back. That way I don't have to pull the disc forward as far. I'm hoping that will help me better time the hit. I'm also looking at shortening my last step. Boy, that sounds like a lot of things to try. I'm hoping one of them helps.
Thanks again everyone.
