I am brand spanking new so I'm working in all aspects of developing my skills. So far as my drive goes, I've finally gotten my rhythm with the x-step so it's a continuous flow through to the snap, I make sure that I get as much reach back as I can without throwing myself off of being able to keep my core centered and balanced, I've started to use a little wag of the disc to get my wrist fluid and doing the right thing for the moment of snap. Here's my problem, I have read so much about the risk ripping itself from ones grip automatically at the moment of snap etc. Here's what I think my problem is I have a VERY strong grip. I've played Bass Guitar since 1984 and though I'm only 5' 8" and not built like a wrestler. I have, however had huge dudes, who tower over me and who could kick my tail try to do the intimidating, manly man alpha dog handshake only to have me turn the tables and have their eyes bug out as I responded with my own grip. In any case. As I put my all into all the aspects of my drive I still seem to have to make sure to let up a bit rather than grip and rip. Otherwise there's no rip at all. It seems, I either let up too much and only get the disc just past 200, to 220 feet tops, or I don't until I am way into my follow through and over extending my arm back almost behind me, where I let go not to pull any muscles or anything and the disc flies way right. I think I know what some of you will say regarding it taking lots more practice and repetition, but I'd like to know if any of you who have had the same problem have any good suggestions or tips on how you overcame the problem. Thanks!
