Yep, I bet he could get even bigger distance if he were to work more on his form, get the disc closer, more elbow forward, etc..

I've seen Feldberg throw in person, and he seems pretty relaxed and casual, in general.

So is this the straight arm method vs the bent arm? It would appear that compared to Dan, Dave is keeping his arm mostly straight except for that slight bend and he's getting the power from the wrist extension, and hips/torso.

If you pause it around the 12 second mark and advance frame by frame, you'll see that he actually does get the disc in close and around the sternum right pec area --- it's just that it's a *lot* lower of a pull. He's actually almost touching his belt buckle with the disc. Which means he's not slinging it from his rear shoulder/back hip. He's also obviously not slipping out. I think his form is consistent with the DGR articles, just without a bent elbow and a much lower pull.

I could be waaaay off, but to me it looks to me like he might be throwing a huge distance line. He's pushing it off to the left, but he's lined up to throw straight. He doesn't need to exaggerate the elbow chop because he already knows how to generate a ton of wrist extension.

In other words, he's manipulating the flight of the disc in that video, so it won't look like a text book throw. If you can get that kind of wrist extension without using the articles on this site, you probably don't need to read them anyway.

Feldberg is in close and tight at the right place for the quick rotation, and it looks like he telegraphs hyzer and finishers flatter for some distance OAT.

Pulling through low like that seems to be the only way to have the disc in close at the right time with a straight arm pull. Either that or having it way over your head roller style.

My question is how is Feldberg able to throw so far with his form? There's some video on youtube where he throws 170 meters in a tourney. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fdyf-mnI2KU&feature=related

I am also amazed that he can get his weight forward and nose down with how large of a last step he takes.

He also teaches a different technique in the Climo and his DVD. He basically teaches Climo's throw/form. At least it appears that way to me.

To me, it doesn't seem like he does the "pivot hop" step as described in the DVD. Looks more like a standard scissor or x-step.

From what I can see, he's in close to his left hip, but he's nowhere near his right pec at any level at any point. His arm is only slightly bent, so it won't go close at all to the right pec with his throw there.

It would appear that he's using the mostly straight arm as a fulcrum(?) and powering the throw with lower body rotation and wrist extension.

This one's a trip It's another vid by the same user who put up the one Aaron started the thread with.

Feldy flops a white putter toward the basket, and then just after fires a black putter at it. Both hit the chains at the same time.

Check out that massive wrist extension on the black putter toss.

That's actually something that Feldberg teaches in the Fundamentals DVD about how to find your natural spin putt.

It looks like he is throwing a hyzer line or he is hyzer-flipping the disc.
