well, you would be looking at two seperate option... either bent elbow or reach back technique.

The biggest thing...and I mean the BIGGEST THING is grip. Great buddy of mine has a throw using only 2 fingers. His index and pinkie are never on the disc. I have been working with him using a modified power/stack grip and gained him 75 feet with no problem. Then I discussed the sling shot technique with him. This allows him to keep his throw style, but focus on generating that whip straight through on a line to the target. Result, an additional 40 feet and accuracy. While he needs further grip work to gain more snap and getting use to the grip, he is already got a great feeling about using these new bit of information.

Morale of the story. You have to take one of two trains of thought on writing an article like this. Do you do a step by step on the whole shebang, or do you write several article in order about building a throw from the ground up.

OO another idea would be an article on the things you can do to get nose down drives, and common flaws people have that make them throw nose up or nose down but torqued.
Today seems like a good day to toss a disc or two.
The one for hyzer-flipping, turning over right on que.
I try to throw just like that, but sometimes I really suck.
Some say I need to get the axing, chalk it up to bad luck.

I wouldn't mind having you elaborate a little more on the different Grips - more details on the various grips - the pros & cons of each.

Sidearm. The sidearm article is quite lite in comparison to the fantastic articles on distance and grip. I'll always be a RHBH thrower but would like to round out my game with the sidearm and am struggling mightily with it... :)

Thanks Blake for all the great instructional articles!! Reading this website for an hour is worth months of practice to a beginner!

I got one.

Please explain in detail the "elbow chop" and how it occurs in the bent elbow technique. The articles on the site just kind of skip over this aspect of the throw. I would like to know how, where, and when to use the elbow cock and uncock motion.

common injuries/nagging ailments, and ways to avoid them/what you are doing incorrectly to cause them? i.e. elbow and shoulder pain from poor overhead shots, or something similar

putting with elevation changes, downhill vs uphill, factoring in diff wind directions, and disc selection ( in addition to other shots, but maybe a separate one for putting if its drastically different to explain )

how to get the desired effect of your roller shot

how to prepare for a tournament

maybe eventually, a list of any shot variations you would use, and a tutorial, possibly with pics or vid of how to execute them? (not sure to what extent youre looking for ideas, are you looking for instructional things for all experience levels?)

Slight hyzer angle and throw it higher in the air. start with trying to get the disc to fly about 30 feet off the ground.

I think you will be surprised with the result.
