Confession time: My name is Robbie Crawford…and I want to throw far. I know I’m not alone in this confession, because at the end of the day if given the choice to throw further few people would say no. Yet when it comes to what it takes to actually start throwing farther few of us are willing to put in the work required to reach that goal.

I wanted to do a distance series that addresses some of the common hangups I’ve run into when it comes to reaching max distance, as well as create a pact with each of you who is willing. I’m not promising that you’ll be throwing 400 feet by the end of this series, but I do believe we can look at some things that are keeping us from throwing our maximum distance. We’re going to highlight these issues, and start down the road towards fixing them one throw at a time. Our third issue is all about the secret sauce that brings all of our form issues and successes together. What’s the issue? You’ll have to watch to find out!!

Have you heard of the Birdie Fam? It’s a community of disc golfers who are striving to excel and improve together. We are going to talk about your struggles and plateaus in a safe and healthy environment. When we come together as a family, we’ll grow together as people.

  1. Thanks for the tips, Coach. Btw that pizza shirt is 🔥

  2. don't cut the pig..but you should 100% throw a bobcat. incredible mid range

  3. am I one of the only ones who got nothing from this video? I learned timing and….stacking(?) are disc golf concepts but no idea on how to really implement them into a proper training.

  4. Dave Feldberg is a prominent example of the elbow not reaching a 90 degree angle mid-throw. Also the disc doesn't come deep into the power pocket. Some people surmise it's to put less stress on the elbow. I believe there's a law of diminishing returns when it comes to a lot of form elements, but the benefits of each individual thing probably follows a bell curve. Reachback/reachout/extension towards the peak of the backswing is probably optimal at some point, but beyond that point the returns diminish. I think that's why there's a lot of variance. Many pros get a lot of things right, if not perfect, and it's enough for them to throw 500 feet or more, because they've worked on that form for many months or years of fieldwork, training, practice, and rounds.

  5. I love the Lat 64 Pure for my neutral throwing putter disc.

  6. I love bacon and I love my PIG. I won’t be getting rid of either one.

  7. This series has been so helpful to me – finally getting a lot more effortless distance. Appreciate you!

  8. I've watched a ton of form videos, this is the one that really clicked for me. Thank you so much.

  9. What about some niche discs for certain situations? Or a Justice since I love mine when I have to use it

  10. Discs you should try out
    Discmania NEO Origin
    Lat64 Opto Explorer
    Lat64 Opto Pioneer
    Lat64 Grace
    Alfa Discs Apollo
    Discmania Neo Esscence

  11. If you have an innova destroyer replace it with a C-line DD3!!!

  12. The mistake two feels like when people say slow down, being slow makes you fast. Except it feel like you broke it down better, sure you need to slow to feel the timing, but there are more things that need to happen. Great video!

  13. Ok Robbie, your last 4-5 videos have been at courses I know. This one I don't. Is it alabaster? Or one of the other new ones down 65? Coming back to Alabama in a couple of months, staying in the clay/gardendale/pinson area but willing to travel…any good newer course recommendations?

  14. Everyone needs to hear this!
    If you find a basket out in the woods, would you think someone made it? Or did it come from no one or nothing?
    If you think it was made by someone you are correct. Baskets do not just make themselves, It would be very mentaly unstable for someone to belive that.
    But if you look at the trees, dogs, birds and rocks all around you, do you think it was made by someone?of course it is. That is the way with all things,  when you see a house or a book or a picture, you do not doubt someone made it. When you see there is a creation there must be a creator. If it is that simple why would not everyone belive it?
    Mabye it is because people do not want to belive in the creator, our God. The reason for this is because he requires moral. We can know this because of our conscience and through the revelation in his word which is The Holy Bible. We deny god because we love what is wrong.
    God, who is the judge of the universe has a list of commandments, that are called the moral law, which is the 10 commandments.
    If we go through them one by one
    We can see what we are guily of.
    Have you ever lied? That makes you a?
    Have you ever stolen?
    Have you ever looked at a person with lust?
    Jesus said that this makes you an adulterer at heart.
    Have you ever had sex outside of marrage?
    Have you ever hated somone?
    In god eyes that makes you a murderer because his standard is som much higher than ours.
    If you said yes to any of these you are guilty and deserve punishment.
    The bible tells us that this is the reason we die. The wages of sin is death. God is paying us in death because of our sins, which is dis obedience to the moral law. So death will one day drag us to the judge of the universe, a holy god. And what shall we do when scripture says all liers the their part in the lake of fire?
    This is where the good news of the gospel come in. So the bible has two parts the old testament where god said he would defeat death, and the new testament where he showed us how he did it.
    The way he did it was by sacrificing his only son, Jesus on the cross 2000 years ago. He lived without sin and tok the punishment that was on us all. That way God can legaly let us go free from the judgement because somone else has already paid what we owed. We can be judged not guilty because the law has already been satisfied through Jesus.
    Just like if you were in a court of law and had a stack of speeding fines and a stranger paid those fines, the judge can legally let you go without you having to pay anything.
    So what you have to do to be saved is repent from sin and belive and trust in Jesus alone. For so god loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, so everyone who belives in him shall not perish, but have everlasting life. We do not automatically become saved even though Jesus has died on the cross.
    We have a choice to accept the sacrifice of Jesus through faith in him or not belive in him and get judgement by God.
    Jesus said I am the truth the life and the way, no one comes to the father exept through me.
    Jesus is the only way cause he is the only one who can forgive our sins.
    All other religions have what is called works righteousness, where you can earn everlasting life. But the bible tells us that we can not do anything to earn salvation. They also  miss the forgivness of sins.
    Therefor we can know that the god of the bible is the true god.
    It says in scripture: For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast.

    If you are reading this I plead with you today to accept Jesus as your lord and saviour. Do it now while you can, you may not have tomorrow.
    To you reading this, please think through what you have read.
    And God bless you!

  15. Love a Pig but ever since I got a Mutant, the Pig has had to make room in the bag…

  16. Robbie, there is a lot of good information in this video, thank you for making it. I wanted to offer a bit of advice, as far as the presentation is concerned. I think you have a ton of important things to say, but the tightly framed comments, and the random banter and inserted video clips are just pointless and distracting. My two favorite disc golf content producers, Overthrow Disc Golf and Seabas22, are able to present a ton of great information without muddying their videos with unnecessary fluff. Please, just stick to your message, it'll make your videos a lot more concise and interesting. You don't have to be Danny Lindahl. His videos started out terse and helpful, and gradually degenerated into unwatchable self parody. Don't go that route.

    Around 9:30 in the video, you start talking about why you only want to focus on acceleration when the disc is in tight against your body, right before it begins to move out from the "power pocket" to the ejection point. The critical piece is why you only want to add upper body energy at this point, and the reason is: leverage. Until the disc is in this position, and you have actual leverage on it, adding force with the upper body is inefficient and weak, and results in the disc being pulled off plane by your arm and shoulder. It also causes rounding and all sorts of other timing problems, with the upper body getting ahead of the hips before they have time to rotate forward.

    I coach backhand form as well, and I've had great success explaining proper mechanics by getting players to get into positions where they feel powerful. If I ask them to pretend to smash a wall with a hammer, they can immediately understand how much easier it is to do when they're in a properly leveraged position with the "hammer", vs trying to swing it from some huge exaggerated backswing behind their body. That also drives home the concept of timing and accuracy, how it's so much easier to drive your arm out and forward to a specific hit point when you're only focusing on the swing out from your chest, rather than trying to throw hard from the apex of the backswing.

  17. Robbie how the heck do you know exactly what I need to work on? Timing was exactly what I needed. I was looking at my videos of my form and I was reaching back too early. Went out to the field and that felt way more natural and smooth. Added like 30 feet to my distance! Since you started this whole level up series I’ve gone from struggling to reach 200ft with any disc to throwing putters 200ft with ease and starting to get to 300ft with drivers. Putting is getting there as well. Thank you so much for your clear tips that break things down onto small steps to work on. I hope your channel keeps growing and becomes even more successful!

  18. I've been absolutely loving the mvp/axiom discs. Envy, Glow Envy, Hex, Reactor, Insanity, Glow insanity, Fireball in my bag at the moment.

  19. You strike me as a typical gyro thrower. Everything in fission plastic is money. Max weight fission for the win.

  20. Hey Robbie! At some point, could you make a video about how wind affects the flight of discs? Like what does a headwind do vs a tailwind with different discs, and maybe how to change what discs we use to account for wind? That would be super helpful to me and I would think a lot of other people also! Thanks again for the great video!

  21. Good stuff! I'm new and learning a lot from online coaches and yours are informative, entertaining, and don't get too far in the weeds before focusing on the the actual tips I'm looking for.

  22. DUDE! You have to try a Wave by MVP, you will thank me. So.. You're welcome in advance haha

  23. Axiom envy / lat64 Pure are two of my favourite putters for throwing!

  24. The Volt is a must have. As is the Photon. I like them both in proton plastic.

  25. You should definitely try throwing Stags!! Just ask Molt😉

  26. MVP has some outstanding discs! Absolutely love my Inertia!

  27. Rob C you need to throw a discraft feirce putter by Paige no joke flies straight and is nice to put with too my go to disc.

  28. missed opportunity to do the entire video dressed as Captain Jack Sparrow.
