I have to remind myself to loosen up before every drive by wagging the disc back and forth to get the feel. I was getting about 25-30 more feet on my normal 340-350 drive.

Its a hard feeling to explain, but it felt like my fingers were preventing the disc from launching out of my hand. The wrist extension fixed that. Basically I think that if you find yourself stuck in the 380-400 plateau--look at your wrist extension. Adjusting that made the biggest difference in my distance than anything in quite a while. I feel like I am actually using the energy I am putting into the throw. Before this break through I could throw at 75% and get around 380-400, but if I went up to 90% I was throwing the same D. Now if I go 90% I am approaching 450+ on a good rip. Bam, 50' just like Blake said. That fool is a l w a y s right.

Until you get the hang of it, the most likely shot coming out will be a nose down anhyzer. What I've found to be the key is throwing with just the right amount of hyzer, because the natural motion of the wrist flexing will be to have the disc come out slightly anhyzer. I think I posted on here about the tendencies of wrist motions with different angles of a bent wrist.
Aaron_D wrote:Too bad im still throwing ~400. :/ Hitting 400+ is still hit or miss and I have days when I can hit 430 and days when I cant break 390. I cant stand throwing anything faster than the OLF so maybe that's part of it.
