Practicing snap with a lid. Good or bad idea?

Postby riltim » Sun Jul 29, 2012 2:26 pm

I was tossing a regular old frisbee around with an old hippie guy I work with and I was amazed at the lines he was throwing as well as the distance he was getting for the disc. I was having a tough time getting it to not turn over on me until I realized he was throwing with almost all snap.

As of right now I'm maxing out at 300 with fairways and i think its snap that i lack. I wondering if me and a friend stood 100-150 feet apart and practiced with a lid type disc if it would either help or hurt my game.

Thoughts?

Playing catch never hurt anybody's game in my opinion. Might even develop a new love for a lid type approach disc.

Lid is bad. If you throw those nose down they turn over. Golf discs you want to snap nose down...

Thanks blake. Are any golf discs better than others for working on good snap?

Deep and narrow rims. Larger diameter is easier to feel.

Rocs, buzzz, etc.

Grippier plastic is better as well.

If anything can be gained from tossing lids it's that you can find out where most people oat, since you pretty much have to stop at the snap point to avoid turning it over.

Thanks again Blake. I have some buzzz's I can work with but I'll probably try my comet's since they have deep, narrow rims and are are pretty sensitive to OAT as well.
