Do you mean in Dallas or in the surrounding area? I live in plano just wondering where this might take place. Sounds great.

I would make the trip from Wisconsin except that I feel like I would probably be wasting your time. I'm still working on the basics. A video would be great though. I think I've seen a lot of people on here asking when you are going to post a new vid. Even if it was just a vid of you huking a few.

There will no class necessarily. Anybody who wants to come by let me know, I will take you out to the field and teach it to you. My schedule is pretty open.

I have had to develop a whole new vocabulary to dissect everything, and I need some work using it. I want to see how people respond.

You already snap as hard as anybody I know... In fact, your throw is nearly all snap.

I could explain to you how you are doing it, and maybe show you elements you could add to it to get more initial velocity into the snap.

I live In Richardson at Plano and Campbell road. I would use the soccer field by my house.

I'd be willing to go this route too.

Assuming that you are able to record this, I think it would be advantageous to record a slow motion, overhead view of what is taking place. Sort of like the view on the Fundamentals video with Climo.

Let us know when this is going to happen, and I'll try to be there too.

Some of the stuff you mentioned last weekend out at Cedar Hill really got me thinking...especially what you said about how the center of gravity (ie - the center of the disc) is what you really want to propel forward in a straight line. I'm not sure how much that ties into snap, but for me it was a totally new way of thinking about my drive. I tried very hard to focus on it when I played at Rockwall yesterday, and I had some of my longest drives ever on the long open holes.

ps - Brad, when are you going to talk Blake into moving to Dallas so we can have both of you guys as disc golf gurus? ;)

And then you all could make a trip to Texarkana and spread the wealth. I'll make sure I will be there if that happens. :D

Not the snap... the SMASH. The lever arm leads to the SMASH. That is the *jump* the disc makes as it leaves the hand. The disc can be accelarated faster than the hand is moving.

Maybe as powerful as the snap... maybe more.

The whole lever explanation is what made it click in my head, but it is hard to really put such terms into words. I watch a lot of history channel where they explain medieval weapons that used lever principals to hurl projectiles, so it made it a little easier to grasp the concept for me.
