downside is that it requires a lot of intangibles to push it beyond the 350-380' plateau (the equivalent of backhand "snap").
bigger downside is that there currently isn't a video/book/article teaching it and people are more apt to learn from the stokely book/video . ... when there is a method i can reference i will be less apt to give caution towards sidearm throwing.

I think what you're calling intangibles (snap, etc.) are actually technique points that, while very tangible, are also quite difficult to explain, especially in writing.
