this isn't me. let me repeat.....

Postby readysetstab » Tue Sep 16, 2008 2:08 pm

this isn't me.

has anyone seen these videos on youtube? some guy that's been playing like 6 months trying to give people tips. he obviously has no idea what he's talking about. if anyone knows this clown please stop him. he's going to screw up some noobies if they see this junk.

sorry if someone has already mentioned it, but i haven't noticed it anywhere.

it's actually kind of funny it's so bad, but i'd rather it just wasn't there.

Wow. Those are horrible. I love how everyone just rips on him in every video. My favorite was the one where he was saying to throw backhand you have to start high and end low and then he went on to throw a 30 foot drive as he threw it right into the ground.

it's a shame - he has some honest to god truths, but some things are just bad advice. The videos are hard to see (at least on my monitor) and they don't really help you DO anything. I applaud him for making them though - i man, where are the good videos from people that know what they're doing? There are more of the bad than the good (unfortunately).

As good as the Mike Robinson video is (and it is good), you have to learn from watching, even Mike admits he's not much of a teacher.

I love the Discraft videos but even they haven't really shown how to drive RHBH and broken it down. We do more of that here.

I often start to focus on my drive after my first cage.

I hope for this guy's sake he doesn't join the DGR message board, or else he will surely have to endure the wordy wrath of JR :D

also, he'll probably try to cover his tracks by saying that its all about style and not being a conformist

and then he'll say that he uses his cheetah and aviar and midranges are overrated, even though he threw a shark 1000 ft. his first day of DG

That was a great..........great video. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Anyone else get the sense that he's essentially teaching how to throw with major OAT? Kinda like he's got a bag full of max D drivers and the only way he can throw his speed stable (for him) plastic is to throw that way... :lol:

From discnation's product listing:
The Equalizer is made from heavy-duty surgical latex tube, and comes in 3 distinct strengths. The Green Tube is best for children and women, the Red for Strong women and men of average strength, and the Blue provides heavy tension for the strongest players.
