You'll definitely benefit from rebuilding your x-step from the hit back. If you start from a standstill and little reach back you might be able to get the feel of late acceleration better, too. Like other's have said, you're starting to slow down right about the time you should be starting to accelerate the most. You're squandering a ton of power that way.
We obviously can't see the flight of the disc, but it looks like they might be pretty nice looking air bounces.
thanks!!! i'm going to try the "from the hit back" exercises and see where it gets me. right now i'm getting it out 280 - 300' with decent repeatability and accuracy. i'd like to get another 50' on my drives but have wonder how far a 42 y/o just starting out can throw.
I'm 40+ and have been throwing for about 5 years, trying to learn about 2, "actually getting it" for less than 1 and I'm getting discs over 300', distance in the 330' range with about 40% of my shots getting to 360'+. And I have replaced hips. It's all a matter of figuring out what to do and then applying it properly.
Where in Virginia are you?
