I HAVE BEEN PLAYIN ABOUT 5 YEARS AND KNOW ANY DISC INNOVA MAKES AND HAVE TRIED THEM ALL, BUT I CANT FIND ANY MIDRANGES THAT I DONT TURN OVER I HAVE TRIED EVERY KIND OF ROC, SPIDER, CRO, ETC. LATELY I HAVE BEEN HAVING TO USE WHIPPETS FOR MIDRANGES DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY INPUT THAT MIGHT HELP????
i have decent power i broke my personal record a few months ago, i hit 587 ft. but like you said that doesnt mean anything if i cant throw 200 ft. accurately. ill work on my release and form and let you know how it works.. thanks for the help...
Comet..not Innova,but you might just want to give it a try.Good to have another dg disc in your bag of tricks;>}
more thumb on top ,little more top pressure and throw that sh$t hard and flat...been thowing the ice bowl buzzz from 2008,wont flip over,can take a hard pull,,and a 180grms glow roc,can take a hard snap and hold its line
ive been trying to get my hands on a max weight rancho roc but no luck yet...thanks for the tips...
Not knowing how you throw or how far it's hard to say. However when I first started, I had the same issue. For me it was a technique issue. I was turning my wrist over and using to much power (if possible). You just can't throw mids like you do your drivers or you will trun them over. Also, I'm inclined to think it has to be a technique issue for you as well, just for the fact you are turning over everything. It just shouldn't happen. I mean, if Ken Climo can dispell this turnover or understable issue, by using a putter and chucking it a mile and not having it turnover. I just can't help but think you need to look at your form first.
okay thanks for the tips...
This is pretty much all good advice. There's not much I can say that hasn't already been said, but I'll try anyway.
Just like Rescue, I started off trying to power grip everything. I basically learned on drivers, thus I was unknowingly throwing all my discs as if they were drivers. Throwing mids typically ended with failure and frustration. I would flip virtually everything over and was convinced the discs just weren't right for me. Literally the only mid I could throw was a Drone. Then I started using a modified fan grip for mids and putters. This vastly improved my accuracy and overall flight pattern. I can't say I don't get a little jealous when I see guys throw a Buzzz as hard as they can--I've even been experimenting again with an occasional power gripped Buzzz--but I'm confident this approach is better for my game. In short, gripping/throwing putters and mids differently than drivers allows for greater accuracy compared to greater snap, respectively, upon release.
well looks like i have something to look forward to working on lol.
