I'm kinda new to these forums and ultimate, so if possible use words I can understand.
Ok, I came back from a throwing session a few minutes ago and I was able to huck a 60 - 70 yd backhand, plus around a 50yd flick.
But whenever I try throw an overhead hammer, I just keep going 20 yds and I don't know why. It is wobbling alot aswell. I tried to snap my wrist harder but it didn't work. Any suggestions to help me, please?

Ok I figured out what was wrong. I was releasing the disc in a different angle than what it was in the motion. Keep it in the same angle all the time if your having my problem

Hammers are primarily about release angle and stability.  Wrist snap doesn't hurt, but there is typically a lot of arm behind it anyway, so form is key.  The more horizontal the disc at release the faster and farther it will fly, often though, slightly shallower than 45 degrees will yield best results for regular use.
