There you go again with that defensive shit.

That being said, I've met lots of players who think they throw 400', but by my measure they were mostly struggling around 300', except for the occasional magic hit that gained a lot of distance but was a statistical outlier/anomaly...these flukes are well-remembered by the thrower because they come with a lot of satisfactory emotions, but they are nowhere close to being representative of the typical throw.
Anyways, if you're throwing 400' nose up on low flight lines, just get the nose down on somewhat higher lines and you'll be reaching 500' easily.
I agree, and I want to be as accurate as possible. I'm more focused on golf D, I could care less about my field D. I anything 200-300 I throw my midranges, less than that I throw my putters. So I know I'm not struggling for 300 since I can get my midranges, and even aviars when I threw them that far. The percentages just don't add up you know? To say I'm throwing 400 because I can throw a midrange 300 isn't always the cause though. To make it easier, if I have time I'll go out and measure that field again. I'm in the process of moving so I really don't know if I'll have time! That will make it easier on everyone. I should have focused on that in the first place.
I do have a few questions. I'm a short guy. 5'9 on a good day
. I can really see why being tall is some what an advantage over shorter players. My nose down drives usually don't get enough height compared to my taller friends. So in order to even get 10ft off the ground I do have to put some upward angle on my throws. I say upward angle and not nose up because I'm wondering if I can throw with an upward angle but still be nose down? Or am I completely off on that thought?
I don't want to argue with everyone who has told me I throw nose up. I think I'm just having a hard time relating that statement to my throws. I've thrown nose up and the disc flies upward. When I throw nose down, my drivers fly even and lift a bit. I don't want to say all of my discs fly at an even height, but I know for the most part they do. The 400ft throw in the video was nose down from what I remember. The red teebird (back view) was a straight bullet that nearly missed the goals. I think I'm confused on what a nose up throw looks like. Can a nose up throw fly at an even level? That might be where my confusion is. I'm seeing even height throws, so I'm assuming I'm throwing nose down. Which might not be the case!
I'm not trying to argue, I'm just trying to better understand. So don't take it the wrong way. I've watched my video way too many times and the ones that clearly show the release look like I'm throwing nose up. I just can't put the video and the line they made to connect... If that makes sense.
nothaz, what are you doing to brian peppers?! He didn't do anything to your bush.
