This is in response to a question asked by Theo Pozzy at Champions night at the Worlds. Theo asked "How do I increase my distance from 300 too 400 ft. Thinking about this, and trying to answer briefly was difficult, so I didn't answer right away. My best answer is to go to walt haney's throw
If I were to write a textbook on throwing, walt would be my best example of how to throw most efficiently. Walt does everything right. He has a short back swing, has his weight properly distributed, brings his disc high under his chin, delays rotating his upper body forward and unbending his elbow until his hips are open and he is in the proper position for maximum power and pull through. He does not start to unwind early as so many poorer throwers do. The only thing missing is what is happening with his grip. Suffice it to say that he must have a strong grip to utilize the power he is creating with his movements. If the disc does not rip out of his grip strongly, the power will be dissipated. There are three clips. Clip one (column one) has the best frame by frame. Frame four in clip one is the "ready to throw" or "go" position that Walt does extremely well. The second clip (column) is the best video view in real time.
