"I have to strongly disagree with the first 2 sentences of this comment. everything else seems pretty ligit. Sidearm is awesome because it's seems to not be a very "perfected" form."

"I this is true that the Forehand shot has more to do with physical strength than Backhand shot. Good form and strength help either style of throwing for distance."

Jim Coonradt replied to Darrin Hull's discussion Questions from a Frustrated Forehand Thrower
"Backhand doesn't really take a whole bunch of strength. What it takes is good technique. Watch some videos, learn the X step and see what happens. It's best to have both shots in your bag. If you only have one or the other you will limit…"

"1. Grip - If you are fan throwing your thumb will be over the first knuckle of the middle finger. If you are power gripping you want the thumb directly on top of the top side of your index finger. 2. Snap - Snap is a BAD word and comes from the…"

"I played the first 2 year sidearm, and I have a bad back... bad enough to get SSI! And I always said I can't throw backhand because my back.. and when I first tried backhand it was not good! But i stuck with it and now throw over 100 feet more…"

"Darrin, It is difficult to diagnose throwing problems and craft suggestions based only on written questions. An in-person lesson with a good Pro who throws forehand is more likely to help than anything you read here. Overall body strength and…"

"Sam's advice is exactly how I throw forehand, as for snap, try taking a dish towel and snapping it with the forehand motion,(wrist flick) if you can get the towel to pop, you are doing it correctly."

Sam Jones replied to Darrin Hull's discussion Questions from a Frustrated Forehand Thrower
"I also learned to throw forhand because I could not get the distance with my backhand throw. That was a long time ago but I still use forhand shots when I want a disc to turn right ( I am right handed). I can thow a forhand about 350' on…"

"Thats pretty good advice. Id take that to the bank. The only thing I would add is to practice more and remember that your still "green". Dont get discouraged, you have only been playing for a short time."

"Grip I think the key here is to pinch the disc with your thumb near the finger thats touching the rim (so in your case the middle finger). pinch it agressively. Snap The what you gotta do is spin the crap out of your disc with your forehand muscle.…"

Questions from a Frustrated Forehand Thrower

I'm a frustrated left-handed forehand thrower who started playing Spring 2010 and I need some advice on getting better distance and more consistent throws.I don't have the arm strength or athleticism to get decent distance on a backhand throw (LH or RH), so I've gravitated to driving LHFH for anything but really short hyzer holes of less than 200 feet. My results have been less than spectacular, with my best drives going about 275 feet (and there are few of those).I've seen all the videos…See More
