Tie-Dye Help for Me? Y tu'?

Postby alerik » Sun Oct 30, 2005 2:12 am

I found a 174 gram pro tie-dye Innova Starfire the other day. The tye-dye pattern is a rainbow swirled around the disc.

I had never thrown a starfire before, and since this one had a name (HEY CHRIS FLORES in TX., this may be yours) and no phone #, I had to throw it.

One of the things I noticed on my first throw with the disc was that after I got an almost perfect throw. I'm serious, best form, X-step, snap, nose down, it went almost 375+ on 510' hole.

The spin was soooo sloooowwww. I mean it, with the way the tie-dye is laid out on the disc, I can see that the spin I am getting on a disc is slooww.

How can I get it to go faster? farther?
If I can't beat you now, I will practice until I can.

this is rooted a lot in grip, extension, and how clean you release.

i have been told by many old-schoolers that i get a TON of RPM's...
which i have found does not really help me at all, but just makes me riccochet farther off trees instead of stopping dead.

does help with rollers.

btw, ton = 18-22 rotations on a 300' throw. most players get 6-10.
