I've seen guys mess around with it...but essentially, its a trick shot...but I'd love to see someone ace a hole with it!
Do you snap the disc off of your thumb with your palm facing down?
Well, come on now. You can't leave us hanging like that. What's a chicken wing and how do you throw it?
Grab the disc like a backhand, but the disc is upside down, extend your arm out pull your shoulder back and swing forward. Should look like a sidearm from shoulder high with the pad of the thumb being the pressure point underneath the rim (same spin as sidearm). Very akward, but doable.
thats exactly right ma' man and i swear it was freakin sick man
I'd leave the skin on. I think extra crispy works best because of the rougher texture. Before there was KC... there was KFC...
Winner winner chicken . . . . . . . . . . . .wing.
I just can't picture how anyone could throw a disc nearly 300' with a shot like that. Anyone have a video of someone throwing a chicken wing?
I have a friend who uses the chicken wing on a regular basis. I cringe every time he does it, especially if I'm his doubles partner.
I break mine out for laughs or some silly ass upshot on occassion, but I cannot imagine throwing one almost 300' (much less getting an ace while doing so). Trip out!
Ok...I THINK this video has the throw you are talking about :


1 minute 37 seconds into it.
ya ,there is a guy in san diego who drives with a chicken wing throw,its an approach shot,mostly to get over or around brush,,its an easy throw,for approach ,but as a drive its somthing to see
