My advice to you is concentrate on your arm swing and release. It is the two key steps in generating power and distance accuracy when throwing forehand as well as backhand. Make sure that you have a nice firm grip, I would place your thumb on the location where the flight plate meets the rim, that ridge offers great support when trying to increase grip. The arm swing should be a nice comfortable extension back to a mid point or further, not too much up and down motion at this point, just back and forward. The least movement in the up and down direction the better. Make sure to have your arm come close to your body with elbow tucked close to your side and generate the power throughout with an extension and forward release. Have your follow-through and arm extension point directly at the target at end of release. To cure the fluttering make sure that the disc rolls cleanly off your finger at the release point, no jerky or bouncing at this point in the throw. I hope this helps, let me know how it works out for you. The season is in full swing, take care.

Tali Openissa on paikkoja, vaikka kuinka paljon junnuille.
Kun Master, Women ja Juniors yhdessä alkaa lähentelmään 80 pelaajaa niin TD:n päässä alkaa varmaan surisemaan... Mukaan vaan.

Sure, the only reason that they are going a little further is for the fact that they are spinning which enables them to actually fly when released. The question that you have to ask yourself is that if your release is as accurate with that grip or if the disc is staying close to the basket on a miss. It usually comes down to not the longest putts, but the putts that are most consistently going in the basket. I would rather hit 80% of my putts inside of 30', then top have a couple 100' putts go in and have other times where I was in trouble of triple putting. Sure it might be great to spin putt from long range for upshots, but you have to putt with the grip that is most consistent. Its all personal preference and I prefer the push-putt above all else because of the consistency.

Sure, I would recommend it but only for putts outside of 40-50 feet. You need to have a sharp consistent putt inside of 30 feet and it should not have a lot of spin because that decreases accuracy on the release. If it helps your back for now just stick with it and keep in mind that a push putt for shorter putts is the way to go once your back is healed.

So how did the Icebowl go?

The wristband is for feel and power. I had a bad elbow for awhile during the 2005 season and wore a band on my arm to keep it all tight for that reason. Now I wear wristbands for style and a positive feel when throwing, it allows me to concentrate on better release.

Yeah, I would try to hold back my feelings for you throwing some other company's discs but that would be difficult. Are you kidding me? They are just toys in comparison to Innova but if gives people a variety of discs to throw and competition is great for the sport just like in business. One of my best friend's in the world, Nate Doss, throws Discraft. Sure I still make fun of him, but I could never hate him for it. Thats like hating someone for the type of shoes that they wear, not logical in anyway.

Just do not rush into throwing for a company unless you really enjoy throwing their discs. I have seen countless people rush into getting sponsored by Discraft just because they really wanted to consider themselves a sponsored player, it becomes a big deal to them. Then many of them would then deny the sponsorship in months to come because they could not adapt their game to different discs that didn't fly they way that they expected. Its all about trusting the discs that you throw, thats all it ever comes down to. Don't worry, I will not hate you

Sorry, I don't know anything about shipping costs to Europe. I would contact the major retailers (Gotta Go Gotta Throw, etc.) and see what they charge. As for getting sponsored by Team Discraft, go to their website, Discraft.com and there is a description and application form there. It is easiest to get added to the team at the start of the calendar year so apply in November or December for the next year.

I know we have a 15 year old on the team, Ziggy Bierkoven, who just turned pro. Good Luck

Of course a 360-turnaround will go further then a regular backhand throw, usually 70 to 100 feet further at least. Yea, its the only reason to throw it is because it always you to achieve better arm extension and the forward momentum to drive the disc with more power. But always when dealing with more power, you are typically going to lose some accuracy as well because you are taking you eyes off the target for a little longer in comparison to a regular backhand. Trust me, its the only way to go if you plan on achieving maximum distance.

My advice to you is to practice a least 30 minutes to a hour from short like 10-20 feet at first then range out to like 25-35 but no further then 50. Get it dialed in.

Yeah, I know about the rating stuff but you can still make it if the SO doesnt fill I guess?! I actually live in the states for at least one more year...

Not saying that at all, its all about getting down the arm motion of the putt which is the most important thing, it all comes down to the technique when executing anything. It works out if you are unable to get 5 or 10 of the same exact putter, so then you have to work with what you have even if all the putters that you have are different. Proper technique and multiple repetitions are the keys to being successful at Disc Golf.
