I guess. Every time ive snapped a good one off with a 360 it never goes any farther than a normal x-step.

I learned the 360 from Ken Jarvis @ the 2003 pro worlds in flg AZ. This style of throw can put some great D on your drive but is not practical on the course. I tryed a 360 roller in a tourney once and went OB so fast it was not even funny,I had to yell "4" @ a group that never saw it coming and parked their hole 400' away! I would only use it in a distance comp. :oops:

I don't know about the effectiveness of the 360. A bunch of the guys at 2004 worlds distance comp were using it, though I don't know if that is still the case. Many argue that it has no effect at all. I'm interested to hear a discussion about that.

Personally, I have a long list of skills to practice before I start on the 360.

It's effective for those who know how to do it. It's only practical in D contests or #10 Ewing.

Somewhat effective on #10 at Ewing. I cant remember who was throwing off there at 04 Worlds, i want to say Stokely, but he was 360'ing it into the top of the treeline past the road.

i am certainly no pro by any means, but my longest drives have been with a 360 turn. i figured out pretty much how to get a very constant roller with it, with a very overstable disc and it will roll pretty far. much father than i can throw normal. but without trying to roll it, i have no accuracy on my drives when ever i 360.

Yeah, I'm sure the key is how adept you are at doing it. I could see that it would help when done right. But it seems most people would make more progress working on 180 fundamentals, with fewer moving parts etc. Do most distance champs use the 360? I think I asked this before.

I know Avery and Sandstrom both use it in distance comps.

It has the potential to be the farthest throwing form. I was a discus champ in high school and it is all about converting rotational torque into linear progression. If you can turn all of that rotation into forward motion instantly, then you can chuck one out there pretty far :)

Why are you guys talking about spinning around? He's asking about a 360 foot run-up. I think that's way too far.

Yeah, 360' is too far. I would limit your run up to about 100ft.

I was just thinking how bad it would suck if you were 346ft into your run up and sort of tripped stepping onto the tee pad. You'd have to start all over. I'm not even sure I could run that far in 30 seconds.
