The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

I am sure someone has probably run this in a forum, but I am too doggone lazy to search it.

What is the easiest way to build "snap" so as to turn over discs that may not be easily turned over?  I'm not talking about going overboard with like a DC Force, but something more than my DC ESP Avenger SS.  I mean something possibly like my Z Surge SS.  (I know it isn't near as overstable as other discs, but I don't have a huge arm, either)

To build or work on snap. Try lighter discs and slow your pulll through down and try and concentrate on the hit (the last part of your pull through. Also, I practice with a dish towel (small to med size) and work on my pull through. You will be suprised how hard it is to get a "snap" out of it, but it will help improve you technique, therefore improving your snap. Also, go to discgolfreview .com. Blake T. talks about some other ways to work on snap.
Don't be lazy. I just put the word "snap" in the forum search field and it came up with 892 topic based on snap.
Try throwing your putter and a midrange alot. I've heard of alot of people having success like that.
i try to keep my wrist curled slightly, then let the disc rip out at the "Hit", not open my hand willingly.
Go to YouTube and check out some of the Discraft videos on distance. Grip matters as well as foot work. It's all in loading up and then releasing that power. Load and release.
That's what she said
No she didn't!
I'm going to give the snap the towel thing a try here soon as it is something Blake T on dgr has suggested. Also check out DGR because they developed a way to give someone a 350 FH in about a half hour. Believe me it works, the purpose of it though is to transfer what you learn through these FH drills to a BH throw. They think they have it about 80% figured out and are still working on it because they just started last month I believe. A couple of guys who are only half hitting went from throwing big distance drivers 350 with an xstep and reach back to throwing a Roc 350 from a standing position and half reach back. So there is something behind it, they're just working on finishing it.
I hear this is bad to do as it can cause too much drag and not allow for a "proper" snap to occur. I've also heard that you do want to do this, I believe Kenny's site states this in is driving section. What kind of distance are you getting from throwing this way?
thanx, i like what you said. i have a friend that brings a towel out and uses it for his "practice" shots
