This is a bit of a spin-off of the grip/arm speed thread. Didn't want to derail it.
I'm happy with how far I throw, but I want to get more accurate. Last summer I got really accurate at a time when I was working on 80% throws and just in general getting in touch with the late acceleration part of my throw. I lost my distance, though. I gained it back once I started working on the Incomplete Secret Technique stuff, and I still have good accuracy thanks to body positioning and easily repeatable form, but I want my accuracy to get much better. I saw in the Incomplete Secret Technique thread that Blake was advocating using your thumb as a guide for super easy accuracy. A few others agreed. Now I see Dave D's tips and all the talk about the importance of the thumb, and I'm thinking that I need to get better at this.
I have virtually no idea what's going on at the end of my throw. I've never done the late acceleration drills. I know how to place my body during the run up and transition my weight with the correct timing, and I know how to pull tight and set myself up for nice late acceleration, but once my hand passes my chest, the rest of my throw is a blur and it either happens right or it doesn't, based on how well I've execute the earlier parts of the throw.
Sooo, who here is super accurate? How did you get that way? How many of you can control your disc pivot enough to aim the disc, like Blake was advocating? How can I work on getting more awareness of what's happening as I'm accelerating through the hit?
