Tear apart my Forehand

Something went wrong. Please make sure you added the video correctly. Click here to see how YouTube videos should be embedded. There could also be a technical issue that's not your fault. Click here to view the video on YouTube's site. If this link doesn't work, you did something wrong.

I should probably lose the crabwalk, and pick up my right foot as I come through the hit so I can pivot. What else?

Stall taller, and close your stance with your front foot/hip and let your weight fall forward into the front leg/hip, then throw. Your weight is transferring after you've begun the throw. In the finish your head should be over the front foot so you can extend the whip further out through the finish. Closing the stance will also allow you to reachback further. I'd also experiment with a finger pads more on the rim wall grip, might help with flutter on release.

If you can throw 380-410 and your arm feels fine then don't change anything. That's a serious pump and you look pretty accurate too.

If your getting that distance then you are in really good shape... the only thing that I noticed is to keep your disc flatter. I noticed that you flipped the disc back and you can see it wobble as the disc flies away. Other than that I thought it looked really good. That's a beast of a forehand!!!

I just took a peek at your overhead video, but thought I'd post here.

You don't telegraph your release angle forehand. At max reachback, the disc is nearly vertical.
