Find a player who is good and ask for a few pointers. If you can develop good habits before you let the bad habits set in then you will have an advantage learning. The footwork and grip are very important to getting a good throw. Seek out the best players that you can find for advice.
oh ya your arm,its gonna be sore the first few month of consistant play,,do some practice in open space just so you dont have to do all your learning on the course,learn how to throw what you bought,we all did and still do it,it helps to see flight patern when you dont know how they fly,
i have a avenger ss that if throw dead straight and about 270 and an archangel that i have already broke in that i can do whatever with, one of my buddies said he was really surprised i was already throwing that far and straight.
i ran into a pro at my local course he said to pick up a avenger ss, stalker, and a surge ss.... My avenger ss is my favorite disc, but the surge ss is too much for me right now. Once in a while i can count on it on a dog leg left, i am left handed, so i throw it forehand..
