In certain sports maximum effort is required (weight lifting, sprinting) but in most sports controlled effort is what succeeds.
Dial back to 90% for your longest drives and throw smooth, balanced, controlled and with a full follow through. Try this and see if it fixes things. If nothing else at least your injury rate should decrease over the long run.
My theory on what happens for most of us is that once you get to 80% or so, you're actually at "full power" and then if you try to throw harder you're at best at 80% but with added OAT. I say best because you're probably sacrificing any wrist extension you may be getting.Mark Ellis wrote:I view throwing at 100% power a strategical mistake.

Work on throwing it on pure hyzers just to see if you can do it, but it sounds to me like the disc is flying as advertised. TL's are supposed to turn, especially when they're beat up. I'd recommend shelving it for a while until you beat up another one as a back up. If you want a disc that goes straight get a Teebird.Itchy wrote:JR: My Stalker and TL flip whenever I try to get them past 350. TL is worse than the Stalker, but not by much.
I went and threw the TL with a 7 to 8 0'clock release angle and it went pretty straight. Turned right and went out straight, but right of the line I was aiming on, then faded back left. It wouldn't anney to the ground. So with a pretty big release angle it more or less goes straight, but seems pretty sensitive if you don't get that release angle down there. I also took my Predator it flew a lot straighter released flat, but faded left fairly hard at the end.
Powered down, the TL still flies pretty straight or anney when released flat. I have two new TLs and they were kind of like the Stalker. They'd fight going anney better than my old one.
I'm starting to think my old TL might just be beat to death but any technique advice is still appreciated. I'm also thinking I might need to start dialing back a little during rounds.
