I have been discing for several years. And it seems the more I read about technique the more it messes up my shot haha. Lately it seems that as I transition from reach back to hit my disc ends up shanked way off the line to the right. It's not that the disc turned over, it's that somehow my follow through happened before I released.
Over the winter I had a lot of great rounds then I started thinking about ways to improve my shot. Some of my friends had told me I was rounding off. And I have read some articles on technique. It seems the more things I have in my head to think about the worse I get at the game haha.
I have been experimenting with a few things:
1. Keep my arm locked and swing it back to the reach back. It seems to work good for understable discs as it produces more of a hyzer.
2. When my disc gets to my stomach / chest, make sure to add some curl so that it goes hand, disc, chest in parallel. Works well with a comet!
3. Keep the disc lower at my stomach. Again more hyzer.
4. Always trying to figure out release angle and grip.
A few things I notice right away when a shot goes wrong: I didn't follow through, I am not low enough, I threw from my back shoulder, or my body spins off the line ...
I really feel like I forget how to play! One day I go to the park and kill each shot further than ever. The next day I am throw my mids into the bush on short holes.
My main focus now is just throwing down the intended line. So when I shoot I reach back, try to bend my elbow and get the disc close to my body and at that point my body starts to spin. I think what I need to do is throw then spin? It just feels like I am stopping myself and losing power.
