JR wrote:The number one thing for a good spin putt is to never allow the elbow to straighten prior to the disc leaving the fingers. The downside to spin putting is the previous sentence. You need a fast arm acceleration to pull that off and the more you are tired the more difficult it will get. The result of tiring and punching forward with the arm slower than needed is that you hold on to the disc when the elbow is straight and the momentum swings the wrist right of neutral and you have a tremendous chance of missing right if you're not within feet of the basket..

In basketball, is it better to lay it in or dunk? It doesn't matter if you can't dunk.
Push putters have great wrist snap and snap is very difficult to develop. Would a push putter be better off spin putting? I have no idea but suspect they would be very good at either with enough practice and confidence.
Peot wrote:See, the way I've been push putting is basically squatting and getting finger spring when I pop up. I can do it pretty well, but in terms of the kinematics of the motion, I feel like much more can go wrong here when fatigued than when spin putting while fatigued...when I switched to spin putting it was easier when I was tired and sore.
