How quickly should one expect to improve, given that you're practicing almost every day? I can throw fairly straight, and my biggest problem is my distance. I started out at about 30' driving about 10 weeks ago. I added an X-step after a week, and increased to 50'. I moved up to 60' over the next month by doing some work with an elastic band. I moved up to about 70' by changing drivers from a leopard to a t-bird. Now, I'm pretty constant at about 70', and have been for about a month. I'd like to try and get up to about 100' before the winter break, because I'm sure I'll lose some distance over winter. Am I being unrealistic? What else might I work on? I'm thinking about trying discs with more glide. Have you found that helpful when you're dealing with a short drive?

I see alot of Discs have different weights, How do I know which is best for me? whats the difference between the weights? better flight?

I found that Practicing my Form on the throw helped me more than the x-step did. I throw about the same distance either way and when talking with local pros it seems that they value good form over all else.

Should a beginner really practice/work on a RUN UP release while driving, or start off by focusing on properly snapping without a 'run-up" drive on the tee?

(I notice when I try to put that power behind it from a run up type of drive, I can't always control where it goes)
