The best way to describe throwing a forehand is comparing it to a vertical jump. As we know, vertical jumping ability is directly influenced by the speed of the force exerted against the ground during a fixed span of time; the faster the application of that force, the higher the jump. To translate this concept into throwing a forehand, we can infer that the less time it takes to apply a given amount of snap to the disc, the more rotations will be yielded per 'x' amount of time. With this, if you look at an exceptional thrower like Alex Thorne, you'll notice that he has one of the quickest releases out of any thrower in the nation. Furthermore, those quick releases all generally look more or less the same, regardless of the distance of the throw. Such quick releases coupled with a strong snap provide for a throw that will fly through the air with very little observable disruption from wind.

"speed of the force"....hum you need to read your Physics books again


BTW, do you know why all animals more or less jump at the same height ?
A tiny flea can jump about 20-40 cm which is about what an average man can jump too (without the help of any forward momentum)


The energy to jump up to "h" is "m*g*h"

To do this, you need to apply a force F over a distance D, so:
F*D = m*g*h

The muscular force F is more or less related to the cross-section surface of the muscles: L^2 (L:characteristic length)

Since D will scale with L too, and the mass scales as a volume (so L^3)

L^2*L = L^3*g*h

so h = Constant, regardless of the scale of the animal


The flea will have a hard time throwing the disc, but good luck calling a travel on it.

Dunno what's worse between this or "dipshitted crackhead alcoholic".

Maybe one does not preclude the other ?

EuhNGroups, you're trying too hard (and failing) to both be funny, and sound intelligent when you're trying to be funny.

You two fellas should rendezvous and have a forehand accuracy
& forehand distance competition. Do a hammer competition while
you are at it.
