Alright, so I've been nerding out on the forums and incorporated 3 things into my technique that I've read, and it's added distance. I now extend my thumb out as shown on Blake's article about grips, I let my shoulder and hips pull my arm up until it gets to my right pec, and now that I have good pressure on my index and thumb I rip the disc at the last possible moment and it sails. I think I've finally started to feel what disc pivot is. I can FEEL it rotating in my hand, and when it gets to where my wrist can't open anymore I really pull and grip down hard. I know it's probably not the case, but it seems like I'm not even pulling hard until the disc is pretty far out in front of me. I'm not getting massive distances, but after some field testing I was getting wizards out to 300'-325', leopards out to 375', teebirds 375'-400', and I was crushing my valkyrie to 400'+. All of these distances are on line drives maybe about 10'-20' off the ground, and they all just fly dead straight. The D wasn't translating so much to my Nukes. I didn't feel like I was getting the same grip on the disc, the rims felt too wide for me to really get that same leverage. I'm finally at a D I can accept. I'm not as happy as I'd be with 500', but I'm happy with my progress for the season. Now I really need to work on accuracy and gauging distance for upshots, and my putting. Both of which are subpar. It's very frustrating getting my drives farther and better placed than my opponents, and watching them birdy or par, while I miss a 10-20' putt, or blow an easy 100-150' clear upshot.
