    Disc golf family advantage.

Guys like Nikko Locastro have a reputation for being big arms, but I've seen Dave outdrive him on tourney footage on many occasions. (Sure seems like they duked it out a lot last season; made for some great vids.) I'm not saying that Nikko doesn't have good form, but he seems to put substantially more effort in to his drives than Dave.
    I gotta say, some of those pics of Brody Miller really show 110% technique.

      I'd say the effort is comparable. Nikko simply is a more dynamic thrower. The top guys all have distance, the real difference is having the guts to use it on the course and pull it off. Nikko takes more risks on the course, and often times finds himself in better position. Also, he can find himself in worse position. Dave is solid, throws some big shots for sure, but all together isn't bombing on holes where you might see Nikko, Uli, McBeth and Will going for it. If you want to see smooth form and distance, watch Will Shusterick. He is pure silk off the tee, and still hitting 500 with no problem.

      *Just to clarify - Dave can throw really far. But so can most of the pros. Not trying to diss Dave and his stellar technique.

        So that begs the question, "Is it technique that helps these guys throw far? Or is it freakish genetic lottery winners? Or both?" just curious. If it is the technique, then can't that be taught and hopefully learned by mooks like me?
