I've watched all of your videos carefully and had a question or two. I noticed that your wrist is cocked a little more toward your chest as you're coming across into the hit. Is this to get the "head of the hammer" to a more leveraging position, or is it just "tendon bounce"? Is this what makes the difference in a lot of people's throws?
I've heard a lot of people discuss that you helped them. I'm using Masterbeato's "Work Backwards" technique and can throw (with audible snap for the first time) mids to about 250' without a run up or reachback (only to the beginning of the right pec). When I do this, my wrist is cocked pretty severely, to about 60 deg and maxing at close to 90 deg at the hit. I'm keeping everything loose until the very end. Is this about right? Does it sound like I've found something? It obviously will take more weeks of practice to get this down and to incorporate it into my game. Just thought I'd ask.
Thanks for your hard work on all this! It's helping me and a bunch more enjoy DG more!
I'll see if I can jump in until BW does - Yes, he's cocking his wrist a bit to get more leveraging. The tendon bounce happens as the wrist is bouncing open, not as it comes in.
Yes, I'd say you're onto something getting mids out to 250', audible snap means nothing about distance, it's just a symptom of your grip. Some people get it, some don't, some who do, don't all the time.
Yes, you keep everything loose until the end, then pull and tense.
