I agree with everything you say here - my throw is not exemplary in any way - but I've found the hit that was eluding me, so now I can start building the rest of a throw around it as this thread impliesCatPredator wrote:He is just extending his wrist 10-20 degrees past neutral on his reach back, using it as way to get his forearm relaxed. It's an extra timing check at first, and it can help develop feel.I guess I'll note here that you (Banjar) are not getting the disc up to the power zone and your release point could stand to move forward another ~12+ inches, but you are getting some snap.
I've seen that type of thing discouraged on the site before because it can contribute to accuracy problems and you can achieve the same snap by just maintaining a relaxed forearm/wrist and extending to neutral. There are pros who do it though. You kind of let your arm "bounce" while it's fully extended. Once you start throwing harder it seems like it could be slightly dangerous. You completely give up control of your arm for a brief instant which seems like it could result in injury such as hyper extension or tendon damage if your timing gets off and you try to pull too hard too early.
