Blake - Am I right that putts out to 30' don't require much more power than is needed for a 15' line-drive ... just a higher apex?
*EDIT* Blake, any chance of getting a video of you performing the technique? No disrespect to Beato'(did a great job and explained it very well) but I think it would be nice to see someone who has mastered it in action, as apposed to someone who uses a different putting technique when he plays trying to imitate it.
Thanks for the video though - its a relief to me because I'm a 100% visual learning, its difficult for me to read something and execute it with confidence because I always second guess myself. I tried to practice short-arm putting when I read it a few months ago and I was doing it way wrong
1. Acceleration; it seems like this technique would be capped at about 20 feet before you would have to start tinkering with the mechanics or 'opening it up' a bit. I could wrong but, it feels a bit like I'm 'hand cuffed'.
2. Flutter; Anyone have any tips on getting rid of this? Could you explain 'finger spring' a little more? It doesn't seem to effect accuracy much but it looks ugly and I feel like its indicating I have a flaw in my form which might hurt accuracy as I try to increase my putting range.
As far as dropping rate - are you suggesting that if you are having trouble getting range that it might be advantageous to switch molds to something that isn't as overstable? I.E. Wizard/KC aviar to a warlock or aviar?
I'm guessing by 'finger spring' you mean using your fingers to continue the forward thrust you put on the disc - as well as trying to release all your fingers at the same time? Those are the two concepts that come to mind when I think of throwing a good paper airplane
