You have the disc pivot I have been pushing so much lately. Everyone needs to watch this video and see the disc shoot out to the left of the hand at the launch. There is definite pivot snap there.
To throw distance, you just need more focus on the disc pivot to make it even more powerful and FLING the nose of the disc even more nose down. This is step one to learning the "distance shot" IMHO.
If you do this, you can use a more ascending arm swing that starts much lower and DRIVES upward. This will allow you to drive off your back leg more.
If you throw up without a disc pivot this disc will just go up and die...
Throwing up nose down is a distance shot by definition.
If we could marry your pivoted anny with Aaron's arm speed we could throw some serious D.

I have experimented with using more concious powering of the wrist extension as described in Bradley's posts but I haven't quite figured it out yet. But as geoloseth has said its not as easy at it sounds so I'm going to stick with it.
I've also tried running up from the center of the tee-pad recently on these types of shots and it seems to improve my throw so that tells me I should be getting a bit more weight forward and not so much to the right as JR has pointed out.
Also, thank you so much JR for pointing out that my hips are not twisting much (hardly at all really in this video). That is not a flexibility problem. It's just one of those things I tend to forget to do. I know that when I really coiled up my body in the past I saw some distance improvements, so I'm sure that doing this will help in a big way. I think the reason I'm getting no hip power into this throw is simply because I'm not coiled at all.
