The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf
It really depends on how you are already holding the disc and throwing it but I will give this a shot.
- No matter what grip you use, make sure you are comfortable with it. If you have been trying 4 finger for awhile and it's still not comfortable, find something that is (although most people do find some type of 4 finger grip most effective)
- Make sure you have a good smooth form. Don't sprint to the end of teepad spinning like a dradle. Make your run up more of a focus on getting in position to throw not increasing speed so it goes 6 feet further.
- When you do throw, pull hard through your follow through. This will get the disc to rip out of your hands harder getting that snap you're looking for.
- Hold the hell out of the disc. Without a firm grip, you wont get much of any snap.
- Throw throw throw. Go to a field or something and just start chucking plastic. Not only is it fun as hell but if you throw one after another after another, you will get the idea of what works for you and what doesn't because you aren't walking and forgetting between every throw.
- I only recomend this once you really learn your throw but on a max distance drive, i curl up my wrist and seem to get a little more snap and flight. You just straighten your wrist out right as you let go.
Remeber, you don't have to throw as hard as you can to get a lot of snap. You just have to learn when to tighten your grip and when to start increasing your arm speed in your throw.
Hope it helps
try squeezing your thumb harder on the release..., and or snap it like you would a wet towel, and if you never worked in the kitchen before, try it first and get someone really good, that would be a good throw. But try the thumb thing first .
