I taught my neighbor's kid some of my method. He got it after about 4 throws. He cannot do it every time, but he understands snap now. He made a throw and his little hand went "POW"!!!!

He is 10.

I watched Ron Turner throw one of my discs a country mile.

I've got a question about the snap method. Should I do it at the very end of the throw just before the disc rips out of my hand? That is the way I've been practicing it, but I wanted to make sure I'm doing it at the correct point during the throw.

I think some of the easy ways to picture it are releasing as close to your chest as possible, and keeping your grip loose right up until you get halfway across your chest. The better your timing gets, the louder you can snap. Just remember the feeling when you smash. The right pec drill seems indicative of where it happens.

When I snapped the disc so hard one of my tendons hurt the rest of the day (one of my longest shots), my grip felt unusually loose, or more accurately relaxed until very late in the throw. Later than any of my normal throws I believe, I think I just got lucky and tightened my grip just in time to avoid whatever happens when you don't grip soon enough.

So any idea when we are going to see a write up? :P Anyone care to share any more details on it? I have been working on it as much as I can based on things given so far with nice results, but I think more will push me over the ledge.

I am seriously considering driving out there from Georgia sometime between now and Sept. I don't want to commit until I'm sure which days I'll be able to take off work. Know any good, cheap places to stay around there?

I'd come all the way from AK if I could. I have friends from college days (went to Baylor for a couple years) in TX I haven't seen in ages. But I really want to learn big snap.
