I believe it has to do with your body being alot more open and facing the direction you are throwing upon release. I can get a really solid snap of the disc throwing forehand.
When I backhand I can 'feel' the power lost in my run up which is about 4-5 steps. It's like all the power generated in my backswing is lost by the time my steps finish and my arm comes forward in my backhand throw.
What do you throw for sidearm (forehand) and what do you throw for backhand? The discs I use to throw forehand I cannot use at all for backhand and vice versa...

Because he is accelerating through the "hit"?!

for backhand its all about power distribution and rotation of your core. its not your arms, its your shift in momentum from your hips, and roration of the disc
now if i could only putt........
Thats my problem. I use all arm and dont use enough of my weight and forward motion. Thats why I dont throw over 400. Ive tried to switch things up a bit, in the feild just meesing around, But I always seem to lose any accuracy I had. And I find it really difficult to play a tourny with a diff style ive been practicing. I feel like Ill just throw any chance I had of cashing out the window.Abe Froman wrote:im not a pro or claim to know everything, but i can throw far with ease. when i see others that struggle with this it seems like they are trying to use their arms way too much. for me it's releasing power from my core and holding a tight grip. now get cracking on some crunches and tighten up that mid section
