I've seen those videos previously from another source, but they are excellent. Thanks!

My best advice is this:

  • There is no "Right" way to throw or "Right" disc to throw.  There is only the way/disc that works for you.  So take all advice with a gain of salt (mine included).
  • I never stop learning about how to do it better.  Personally I don't believe in "getting it" only getting better.
  • Most Important: Don't make radical changes!  Just tweak what you are comfortable with now.  Got a little heavier, Go a bit longer, Go a touch more overstable.

On the final point, if you are throwing 150's, take the same discs and step up to 160's.  Or If you are throwing a blizzard Leopard, try a blizzard TeeBird or a Blizzard Valkyrie or even a Blizzard Beast.  Or just step up to a 160 -165g Leopard.  In the end I think you are on the right path.

And don't listen to Bossy people. Haha

Great advice here. I can add to this that yes Beasts, Valks, Leopards are great. I throw a Valk or Beast 80% of the time and I have played for more than ten years. Being tall you probably have more arm speed than spin(wrist). My wife and I are tall like you and that's what works for us. Also, if you are a natural athlete, just go with what feels good. I threw an air bounce for years as it felt good. You will develop other styles if you stick with it.
