beginner.. all disc backwards "C " curv

Postby jdmjrm01 » Wed May 31, 2006 5:09 pm

I am fairly new to this and EVERY disc I throw goes LEFT LIKE A MOTHER F@(*ER. I tried to turn my wrist (inside up) up and it still goes right for about 1/3 the throw and then takes a HARD left. I throw RHBH. Even if i move my thumb to the EXTREME outer rim it still takes the same left hand turn.

My friend who has NEVER played before can throw better than me..... I have played even if I Anhyser I make it shoot off to the left....

I’m ready to just say I SUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
:( :( :(

I dont know how many of you throw a Innova Roadrunner but it even makes a HARD left turn when I thow it.

anyone have any idea what i might be doing wrong :?:

you need to get the nose down. i suggest consulting the technique troubleshooter on the main site.

I'm far from the expert here, but falling backwards sounds like one of two things I can think of.

1) You're throwing "up" with your arm, and therefore bending your back as you try to throw "up"

2) You aren't getting your weight transferred forward over your plant foot properly. If your weight is forward, it will be very hard to fall backwards. If your weight is behind your plant foot, your plant foot that you pivot on is in front of your weight, therefore you will fall backwards.

relax and don't try to kill the disc. if you force it and try to "yank" too hard it will throw you off balance.

learn to throw from a stationary position or with 1 step.

read the articles on the main site and make sure it's not compounded by something silly like grip.
