As to the outward pull, yes, this is where acceleration helps alot. You want to absolutely hit the disc with every ounce of speed and grip force you can at the apex. Markus Kallstrom demonstrates this the best.
Those vids are amazing!!!
If you really look... Nate Doss is the best "snap thrower" of the bunch. He perfectly demonstrates the optimum snap motion that we have been discussing. He actually throws with something like 85% snap.
Boy's lost some weight too... Getting lean.
The lower link was edited by mafa and shot by me at Tali Open and President's Cup hole 17 2009. President's Cup vids were the last ones my Casio EX-F1 took before breaking down.
Look at how fast Markus accelerates in the last inches of the throw. He's faster than others in normal speed when he is slowed down in the footage. Jesper Lundmark has some wicked angles spinning the disc. After the elbow bend he's got the most angles geared toward spinning the disc. That is the hammer head throwing analogy Bradley has demonstrated. Linus Åström has the most power coming from the non throwing arm. That is half a misnomer because he swings so hard with the left arm that he basically throws himself rotationally right and a little back to front Great talent in these vids so thank you thank you thank you players in the videos!!!
