same distance with all discs

Postby calvarycoffee » Tue Aug 16, 2005 5:48 am

does anyone else have this problem?


a few years ago, this was the case with all my discs (long drivers on down to mid-range). back then i was throwing 280-290 range. i was throwing all the discs in my bag (13 discs) 5 or 6 reps at a time. for max distance i used different releases for each disc's respective stability. but still, they all ended up the same distance.


i havn't done distance drills in a while, so i'm not sure if i still have this problem or not. (i probably still do. . .)

this is generally rooted in nose angle.

my friend had the same problem but included putters as well

as a general rule, the faster the disc, the more nose down it must be. basically, the relative amount of nose down he got with each disc resulted in discs only carrying a certain distance.

btw. . .your descriptions of the "seam" of the hand and positioning the disc along it has worked well for me this month.

more stability. no flutter. . .hehe.
