I'd say the real goal is to make longer more accurate and repeatable throws with the help of late acceleration induced good spin to speed ratio. In the case of Avery he might have enough acceleration of acceleration rate left at the rip because few disc golfers are as strong physically. So he may pull off an earlier acceleration.
I would not read too much into the throw with the disc with the dark bar on it without asking Avery about what he thought of the throw. I'm not convinced that he would've been happy with it. He threw much better flying shots with his own discs instead of my worn colored one. That disc was just for data gathering about spin rate so I was surprised mafa included it in the video. IIRC there was a BH shot where I got no motion on the camera from top down where Avery got a beautiful rip. That needs to be published as well to do Avery's skills justice. And to show outsiders a more professional looking video.
Who cares that I was exhausted and risking life and limb when they see only a shaking video? I'm sure quite a few would have had poor videos as well with my exhaustion level. Sleeping too little and not being an Olympic athlete filming for days takes a toll. There's a reason why stress positions are used as a torture method. Keeping a camera still for hours is a work out when the camera is heavy and you use zoom in sloping country. Mad props for all the video guys. If I ever will make it to the level where I'll be filmed in a competition I won't be hasty complaining about the distractions of the video persons. With that said I'm afraid ladies lead group didn't take too kindly to me on one hole in the European Open finals near the green Apologies.
