Is anyone familiar with this paper:
http://morleyfielddgc.files.wordpress.c ... thesis.pdf
It's a grad student thesis on throwing a frisbee backhand. The kinematics start in Chapter 4.
I'm not sure the author understood the implications of the results. It would have been interesting to see some debate.
A backhand frisbee throw does have some similarities to a golf swing.
Interesting papers but I don't think there's anything to debate in the second paper. The data is what it is. There might be commentary about the limits of the experiment (1 subject, no analysis of segments nearer the fixed joint) but that would not change this result.
