I know that incourages me,I just played around with it last week and did a controled mellow 360 and added 50ft.I then tryed to throw like a spassed tornadeo but controll went out the window but I couldnt beleive how fast that disc flew.This thread encourages me to kep at it.
I used to freak people out in the early 80's when I would 360* toss disc after disc from underneath one goal post thru the other goal post. I don't use that shot much now. Then in the mid to late 90's I could crush 500 footers with both of my feet planted.

I prefer the "540 mute-grab" drive myself. 360's are played out.

did a switch tre-flip drive yesterday, it was sweet.
Rodeo 540 is the way to really do it right, max distance and wicked style points lol!
I pull out the 360 drive all the time. It is always a crowd pleaser. I practiced in a field with a Blowfly. Then I took it to the course. I also enjoy reading post from people about their distance on thier drives. Almost always an inflated # IMO.
I saw a player practicing for a tournament throw a drive over 700 ft with a 360 drive, it is very impressive if you can pull it off.
I see many people throw 360s in distance competitions, but few use it in Tourneys. Garrett Gurthie doesn't need the extra distance. Gregg Hosfeld is the only one I know who uses it in regular play. Hos is very accurate with his 360 "Spin Drive". I can do it, but it is rare for me to even get a long throw from it. Forget about accuracy.
i tried it on hole 9 at oshtemo yesterday on my first round and it seemed it would have turned out nicely hugging the right side of the fairway, but as everyone knows, there is a huge anhyzer bush that gets in the way so it just got knocked down and i ended up shooting a 4 on that hole.
I am going to have to try it out. any advise on technique
I play with a couple of guys, who can pull off consistently sharp crisp accurate 360 drives and bomb them up to and sometimes past the 500 mark. I myself, (after watching them do it up close for awhile now) have been trying to attempt it lately and it is definitely putting some d in my throw, but it's going to take some practice getting the drives to be precise. With some practice I think I can have it down by summer time.

I can effortlessly throw my JuJu 90,000 millimeters : )
