Discmania Deep in the Game: Ep 5 – Monster Distance (Instructional Disc Golf video)

What kind of a disc I would choose for distance? – A Blizzard Boss around 157 grams, because it has a
combination of speed and lift and flight characteristic that would maximize distance you can get it up to height real quickly cause it’s fast and it has enough carry to give you pretty good glide and
has fairly small low-speed overstability so it doesn’t fall out of the air – Hey Avery check this out what I have – DD2s in P-line. – Nice, those look great! I’d choose a domey one over a flat one
because the domey one has more lift and has less low-speed overstability
at the same time – We’re good to go! We’ve got these Blizzard Champion Destroyers.
Let me see it. 157, that looks just like – my disc. We’re breaking world records today! The two main things you need to throw distance
are altitude; you need to get the disc up as high as you can without losing speed
quickly you need to get it oriented nose down as much as you can with that altitude it has to ride the wind as efficiently
as possible. – Yeah I’m excited, we’re going to El Mirage the dry lake a legendary spot where Christian broke or actually he made the new distance world record of 250 meters. – That’s huge it’s truly incredible It’s good combination of power, speed and technique and Christian has
all of this when you get the right conditions up here you’ll get some pretty big long shots we have a mission to reach 200 meters today and
the lake bed there is about six miles long when you go to this kind of remote places the weather is always a factor We even don’t know now what is waiting for us, right? I don’t know it looks like the clouds rolling in and we get some weather
rolling in. Hopefully brings some wind with it. I’ve never been to El Mirage. It’s pretty cold out there now as the sun gets up and it’ll heat up the ground
and cause some really cool thermals. Actually it’s a good thing we just grabbed a
bunch the new Blizzard-line discs – Yes these Blizzard discs are pretty incredible I was throwing them two weeks ago in Taiwan These Destroyers and these Bosses go a long long way
and with a good combination of light weight good speed and the carry that these discs have I can only imagine what they do in the desert. Especially the boss,
when it winds, it’s going a long long way. Welcome to nowhere Oh Yeah every player in the game wants a learn
how to gain distance and throw further on this section of maximum distance I’m gonna to show you how to get more power and
speed out of your throwing technique maximum distance driving and backhand
driving are a very similar except for the fact that your trying to get an
extended reach back by turning your head also getting a lower pullback and a higher release point when throwing max distance now there’s golf distance and maximum driving distance golf distance your trying to throw a lower line and a lower shot and preferred landing zone for maximum distance your trying to throw as hard as possible and accuracy is not as crucial now in golf distance your throwing a lower
line trajectory, trying to be accurate. for maximum distance I’m trying to throw as high as possible, good turnover angle and get the wind
carry the disc as far possible Now we’re trying to drop some bomb drives in the desert It all comes down to the grip I use a power grip which means tucking four fingers on the inner side of the rim tuck in the middle two and the front and back are flushing against the rim Thumb on the top where the rim meets the flight plate,
good firm pressure good firm grip nothing too loose when it’s gonna fall out of your hand,
nothing too tight when you’re gonna pull it and yank it the grip is very very important that’s
where you have all you’re momentum that your body produces transferring into the disc itself while the golf course I actually throwing drives i produce a lot of
calluses and blisters on my pointer finger throwing maximum distance i actually get a good tear point on my
middle finger. that’s why I use super glue for the most part. and you’re getting so much momentum and so much
tear into the hit point of release that you get again so much power transferring off
these front two fingers. So really concentrate on the grip. And you’ll be throwing bombs in the desert. and now for the arm swing when throwing maximum distance drives. stronger the wind the higher the release it’s all about
putting your body ii position depending on the strength and direction the wind. Typically it’s a lower reach back, and a high release try get maximum acceleration, maximum torque as you turn, twist and throw. Now in order to get maximum distance,
I use a three-sixty turnaround throwing technique for distance contests. The advantage is that you get a maximum reach back, accelerated pull through and violence shift away from back to the front and since it’s not about accuracy when throwing
maximum distance drives i concentrate on rotational speed, arm extension and arm swing velocity. while spinning you need to feel your
body in space and proper body alignment will assure correct release point. and now for the run-up of the three sixty turnaround: I use proper alignment, one linear motion forward, I’m going to take small timing steps to build my rhythm. but all you need is a minimum of four
steps for max distance turnarounds first two steps – driving momentum forward. The third step – you hop on your left foot. and spin-rotate hop one-eighty (degrees) as you’re trying to rotate your lower body, twisting your hips and driving your legs
forward your last and final step with the plant foot as you driving all your momentum forward accelerating through and put everything and all the
momentum into the disc itself. It’s important to keep your body disconnected using your lower body to go first and
then you upper body coming around kind of like corking or coiling driving your body’s momentum forward
until the release of the disc. Now let’s bring it all together. the run-up and the arm swing you’re trying to generate incredible
power through your legs as you’re driving in forward. producing torque through the rotation the
pivot foot. Turning into the power position – twisting my hips and driving the
momentum forward. You want keep your arm and your disc close to your body for angular
momentum to increase spin velocity. You’re using the twisting of your body and the rotational forces for your arm swing to create a slingshot
effect max extension extreme acceleration through to the hit point and release. Now some pro tips for throwing maximum distance drives. Use controlled aggression while remaining smooth and fluid throughout the
throw concentrate on speed and rhythm don’t try to kill it eighty or ninety percent power with proper the technique will get you some big drives down the desert. next for the discs, typically the faster disc spins, the further they fly. so concentrate on the hit point and the release and what comes the wind, the wind is
your friend you looking for a cross-tailwind over your left shoulder. and kicking the disc up in the air with an anhyzer, really
getting the bottom of the disc exposed to the wind and letting it carry down the field. Three key points to maximum distance: 1. learn to use the wind – proper disc alignment depending on the speed of the wind. Wind over your left shoulder for right-handed backhand. 2. Disc selection – Models with great ratio of speed and glide use lighter weights to increase carry in the wind 3. acceleration & power – concentrate on quick transfer of
bodyweight to produce power and quick acceleration arm speed to
ensure maximum distance. Now the wind is picking up, now let’s crush some drives and see
if we can break the 200 meter mark. This is pretty ideal right now. – It’s go time!
– Let’s go! It’s time for Jussi to rip some bombs! Ok, We are getting ready I’m throwing FD’s Discmania Fairway drivers (Jackal) they’re actually not too the fast but
they have a tremendous glide. I try to get them high and sail with the wind. – 165m
– 165, gotcha! No! One more! I’m going to rip this one. 174m! check check, check check. Just so you know it’s forty-eight degrees right now.
forty-eight degrees(!) it’s freezing. but I can’t throw on these heavy jackets. Blizzard Boss… See the wind is pushing so I’m trying to expose
the bottom of the disc and fly it over. Wow, this wind is strong! I need get these turned over more. That was good. That was a big shot. They’re flying really well out here right now. – The last one was about 180m. Gotcha! I gotta get bigger than that. Here we go! It’s freezing out here right now. I think it’s something bigger… Last shot: 202 m! 202m! I’m telling you right now! 200 meters right there! break the mark! Blizzard Champion Boss, 154g. 202 meters with a Blizzard Champion Boss. Someone very very lucky is getting this disc. monster distance and huge drives is what
this sport is all about. There’s nothing more satisfying than the feeling just
after the driver leaves your hand I’m telling you – I just crushed that one. I know that in the long run it’s just one shot,
but man, what a shot! This was the Discmania deep in the Game,
I hope you enjoyed it. Stay tuned for the DVD.

  1. SirVixIsVexed says:

    Knowing that the world distance record was achieved by skying ultra light discs into a massive tailwind kinda kills it for me. Longest distance throw would be more meaningful in a windless flat controlled environment. Just like other records, the conditions should be the exact same for anyone who attempts. If not, go shatter the world record on the right day in tornado alley, where the disc will go 4 miles.

  2. blackstarhalo says:

    Its yet untitled/unreleased song from our (Blackstar Halo) upcoming album. Just a little taste of what is coming 🙂

  3. Esa Arokki says:

    Blackstar Halo rocks some serious ass! Absolutely loving it!

  4. imanfree1 says:

    this is the fuckin´ best episode of all "Deep in the Game" !!! I love it! Great filming and editing! go on brothers!!!! Keep it going!!!

  5. b3derkas says:

    At first I didn't think this video pertained to me for I have no desire to 200+ meters. Though, where I play, Central Park in Santa Clarita, it is always windy and it is good to know how to play off of the wind.

  6. Ned Shneebly says:

    This video is just straight badass! Makes me want to go play right now! Too bad its 1 in the morning :/

  7. jeffthrow6892 says:

    Well……this video is alright but doesn't really do much for the average golfer who's trying to add another 25 to 50 ft. to his drive. And the Blizzard drivers…..so much hype, but the two I tried (a destroyer & a Boss) didn't add any D whatsoever, & they seemed to fly more inconsistently for me……

  8. dakinechips says:

    one shot!

  9. Fin Juhizz says:

    Watch my own trow and comment it 😀

  10. bryand3374 says:

    My question to you Avery is why not try a blizzard Katana? Im no pro but know that a tailwind is going to make your disk more stable. I noticed that boss was riding the turn for a decent time but always ended up fading high in the flight. Im sure your could turn a katana over pretty easy normal, but with that tail wind put it up like you did and let it ride the wind with its turn for days and slowly fade back somewhere out there about 900' : ) Would love to see you beat Wiggins JR.

  11. ThomasIrishHD says:

    u should cum 2 ireland it is always windy

  12. wildcat31772 says:

    I'll remember all this next time i go out to a desert with perfect wind 😛

  13. JustOneMorePSI says:

    At 11:02 he was like 155 and the other guy 165 gotcha… fail

  14. Light Stop Studios says:

    How do we win that blizz?

  15. Phoenix Tyler says:

    No he said 165

  16. Phoenix Tyler says:

    Got a 171 champ boss today and ripped it 430 in a tournamen.

  17. dscjnky says:

    I learned how to ride a motorcycle at El Mirage

  18. jeremybr2020 says:

    Avery can definitely put some bombs out there, however its gotta make you think….Avery's longest there was 202 meters. Then you see 16 year old David Wiggins put his 255 m (836 ft). Thats freakin insane! Wiggins cant be human!

  19. michael blackketter says:

    thats meters tho, 465 ft, and 495 feet. still pretty damn far. can you throw 500 ft? if so, mad props

  20. bill mateo says:

    Monster drives buy these guys! Makes me want to go by the blizz boss! I just bought the Blizz Krait and drove it tuesday 350' on hole #3 out at sf golden gate disc golf course.

  21. bill mateo says:

    Like T said, theirs more out there like second shot approach, mental choices on heavy tree areas. Just a few ideas!

  22. bill mateo says:

    202 meters blizzard champion boss!

  23. Austin P says:

    You should do a video about hitting tunnel shots.

  24. The Turdinator says:

    That is such a sick hoodie.

  25. Jason Odermatt says:

    So all you need is 1: Desert 2:High Winds. um ya practical thanks.

  26. Zach Mazur says:

    Such a staged video, lol

  27. witi says:

    after this vid I've got 20-40m more distance and a broken curl muscle from right-hand ring finger..

  28. Esa Arokki says:

    That's what it is in distance competitions 🙂

  29. TawpDog says:

    Bitch please. I play everyday. 😛

  32. S.0.S says:


  33. Ben Noyes says:

    i feel like i've got the power these guys do, but i can't get it over about 400'. What can i do?

  34. jasona605 says:

    with the amount of snap they are getting off these discs even in a tail wind they would still just be getting a roller out of a katana. with the boss its got great high speed glide but not enough to turn completly on its side to get a solid S curve.

  35. JP Brewer says:

    I totally agree. Throwing straight as a laser every time is difficult.

  36. bigleague5 says:

    the extreme music and hardcore nature of the video and then they come speeding up in a minivan. lol. they could have at least rented an old muscle car to make these videos!

  37. tjtomax says:

    spin rotate hop 180 O_o

  38. Tom Brinkman says:

    Hahaha, I was thinking I saw a minivan. I thought I was mistaken because with how slick the video was, that would be lame. I guess they're lame 😉

  39. curtis2439 says:

    love these discmania videos time to put the knowledge i learned from these on the course! Great drives also 202 meters is insane I could only imagine throwing that far lol

  40. kahtfish says:

    I was thinking the same thing lol

  58. Magistro says:

    Blizzard champ Boss is my favorite disc of all time, really loving it. Distances 20% higher than any other I've ever tried. Still, I'm a long way from 202 meters but then again I´m no pro

  59. Ken2234 says:

    my early days as a discus thrower will help me with this big time

  77. Exce1si0r says:

    I cant drive my blizzard boss anymore. I can hold it at a 45deg and still burn it easily without full power. Also seems very flippy in right,left, or head wind. Still a great disc that I used for a long time.

    Or hook us up

  92. BVendayzo SR says:

    The point of going high here is just straight for distance correct?? I bomb a 175 Eco boss but I try to keep mine low. Curious though I am no where near the size of this dude, would I benefit from throwing a lighter boss in the 150's? Even though I pretty much stick to 175 drivers. Valk for s and left Orc for rights, boss for dependable bombs. My area (Illinois) is pretty windy in general that's why I feel I gravitate towards higher weight. Any thoughts?
