DiscJay wrote:So how far into the power pocket is too far? What is the sweet spot before you start getting into diminishing returns or negatively affecting the throw? I am trying to figure out where that point is. I suppose it will be different for different people depending on arm length and stuff. What are everyone's thoughts?

When I get the disc to my right pec with my bicep directly in front of it, I can do just about everything else wrong and still throw 350 feet.
The disc never comes close to touching my forearm. I broke my right wrist when I was 15 and have never had the same flexibility. I can't even force it to bend far enough to touch my forearm.

Did some field work this afternoon. The best drive I measured was 420 foot with a 170 pearly champ orc on a hyzer flip. It flipped flat while rising, turned right and glided for a bit and faded gently. Best drive I've ever thrown. Comets were in the 350 range on high hyzer flips. Got 1 Yeti drive out to 320 and was bombing the ruby lol. The rest were in between.
Gstar teebird tosses were flat lazers, no turn and medium fade out to about 350.
I feel like I've got another 50 feet in there. But whenever I really go for it, I get OAT with a vengeance. I don't know why. Any ideas?
