Some drives. Need some input

Postby definistrated29 » Sat Jan 30, 2010 8:09 pm

I just started playing like 4 months ago, but I play about 3 times a week. Took videos of two drives today on my gf's camera. I edited it so it shows first in full speed and then in slow motion. Ironically these two drives were probably the two best ones the whole day. Both ended about 40' from the basket. According to dgcr that would mean 563 and 360 respectively. I highly doubt that I throw 400+, so I imagine that I throw on ave 325-350. My gf's canon sd 780 IS is sweet. Any input would be great. Also any other video angles/ suggestions for next time I post a video like this?

I hate you. :twisted: (only been playing 4 months...) You get good D for the amount of time you've been playing. Keep it up!

Wow that is good form for only playing 4 months. It seems like you are one of those people that just get it. Keep on practicing and you will get much better through time. Dont get fustrated at platues either. Its part of learning. The more types of throws(FH,rollers,thumbers,etc..) and grips(power, 2finger, fan, etc..) you learn now the easier it will be later. Just have out there.

Great arm speed. Envy! Keeping the left leg on the ground until the disc has left gives more power. I think you have such a fast arm that accelerating the arm later helps. You can check distances from aerial photos. Bing.com Google Earth work.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

Thanks for the tip. I'll think about that. I did the google earth thing and I was pretty much dead on with my guess that my ave d is about 325-350',

The first disc (was that an Irken logo on that thing?) was pretty heavily nose up. Perhaps a bit more outward (twisted) and downward (pointed) position with the wrist will help.

Don't be afraid to keep your head pointed in the direction of your shoulders. Having it twisted like that will inhibit how far you can comfortably reach back.

Keep the off-hand off the disc. It's weird to get used to, but the benefits are many.
