I picked up an Ion and a new Axis the other day and hit the field with them and my teebirds and leopards. I have been working on my throw recently, and I can tell I'm getting more snap a lot of the time, but I'm not getting any more distance. I'm getting frustrated. I'll list some approx distances based on the yard lines on the football field I was throwing on. These were probably a LITTLE longer because I was going by yard lines but the disc were not straight down the field, being off to the left or right depending on how it threw and I was dealing with decent headwind/tailwind depending on which way I was going on the field.
Now to my problem that I can see. When I throw a disc, I can see it go as far as it can go on just the momentum I give it, and then it dies. It goes into the fade portion of the flight and drops fading back to the left. It doesn't push forward at all. Its like the disc doesn't take over in its portion of the flight. The only time this does not come into play is on an anny with an understable disc, and those tend to carry farther for me. The Axis for example, was in the 230-240 range for me most of the time, except when I threw it on a good anny line about 10 ft or so off the ground and it carried out to around 275-280. Is it my discs still having too much fade to fly for me at my power level? Is it my technique? I have a sneaky suspicion that it is spin, which is part of why I wanted to try the MVP discs. I KNOW they want spin so I wanted to see how they flew and use them to judge when I get more spin on them. Does it sound like spin to you guys? How do you get more spin? ANY help appreciated...
