A correction to the video. In the forehand part at about 1:40 it was said that the wrist comes behind the wrist or something like that. .

Is this something you guys have incorporated into your throws or do you keep your wrist pretty neutral for your throw? Also when you do throw do you concentrate on pinching the disc between the thumb and index finger to get that pivot? That is something right now I do not concentrate on. I thought I had an idea of this and went out and practiced this last night before seeing the video. I have to say that I threw one of my best putter throws ever trying this. Not sure how far it went but it was a laser. I couldn't repeat it consistently because I have some OAT issues either from wrist roll over or from not following through on the same plane. Not sure which one it is but it is getting pretty annoying. Thanks again and I look forward in exploring this topic.

You can use that little arc to create and separate plane unique only to the disc itself and create some wicked nose down anhysers for example.
Using the fling motion you can create more nose down than your wrist can attain, no matter how much you bend it down.

In another thread you said that the more you try to throw with nose up the more the disc will fly nose down with the help of the wrist extension. How does this happen? Are you talking of the disc flipping over in flight to an s-curve where less initial front not nose of the disc down is required for the disc to fly nose down mid air. Flipping over is easier to achieve with wrist exaggeratedly down. This suggests to me that it might be something I've not noticed while the disc is still in hand mid throw. Which body parts make the disc fly nose down? I noticed in the video that the grip on the disc had the wrist rolled a lot to the right clockwise. Is that the reason for nose down with nose up attempts at releasing? That wrist roll over angle should turn discs over for s-curves and nose down. Without trying to throw nose up too. That's off axis torque probably with wrist extremely down and very flippy and very nose down. Roller territory on hard throws for moderately overstable drivers.
What am I missing in questions that makes the disc fly nose down in air when trying to throw nose up that happens during wrist extension?
