    if you are throwing 400 ft you should probably disc down for the 330 ft shot from a groove to a mid range or a fairway driver. Leopards are awesome, throw them.

      Eagles, Teebirds, TLs, and XLs are all pretty bossy for that wooded 320-360 foot range, also.

            Animal control might have an issue with this.

              I was out this morning throwing and had the same thought. So I used my 180g first run star Mako and parked it. I was making shure to keep my head with my shoulder (not looking over my shoulder) and X-3step- SNAP! What a lazer beam! I can see how that keeping my eyes on the disc during my forward swing realy allows me to get ALOT more snap into the disc.
              However I stil have the left elbow sticking out issue, damn chicken wing!

                Yeah it's an amazing feeling when you first realize that. It took me a little bit to get it but now it's amazing. When I line up my shot, I pick the mark I'm trying to hit in front and line up a target behind me in direct line with the mark in front. It seems that I tend to be more accurate this way. Added bonus being that you get to see the angle of your disc when you go to release. Which can definitely be a big help when you really have to have that perfect shot.

                The left arm thing isn't really a giant issue per-say. It could be if it was robbing you of power but it doesn't seem to in your videos. You could always have somebody tape your arm to your body so you get used to it. Might be a little difficult to play an entire round that way. Keep hukking!

                  I've heard of people having good results just by practicing with their off hand in their pants pocket. It will ensure that your arm stays tucked in during the throw, and you will get used to it quickly.

                    I have a friend that throws like that, his off-hand in his pocket. I was thinking about holding my towel, wich is clipped onto my belt loop. Then again I might try to rip the towel off!!

                      I would do the pocket since you're unlikely rip it off, and just do it for practice. I wouldn't actually throw like that, because it could get distracting and doesn't allow your off arm to come out as a counter-balance during the follow through.

                        I saw no problems with your left arm. It may be a little behind but it isn't a problem. Let it be.
