High quality slow motion driving videos

I stumbled upon some high quality slow motion videos of Paul McBeth (he was recently on the cover of Flying Disc Magazine #5) driving form.

Here's the link: http://paulmcbeth.com/. Go to the videos section.

These show great form of the X-step and a full reach back. Hope you enjoy them and learn something too.

I just learned a trigger point of having my right foot planted at the point where my arm is in full reach back. It isnt somethign I have seen before and to tell you the truth I am not sure when my arm is reached fully back, but now I have something to concentrate on!

I met Paul McBeth at the Lewisville Open in Texas this past September. He is an awesome player. He shot 14 down on one of the rounds by the lake which tied the course record. That was his first time to play the course in tournament play too! The other 14 down was actually shot when the course was shorter than it is now. It was pretty impressive. Really wierd to be outscored so much by a kid.

i've recently noticed the same thing from watching some of the CLASH videos and having the ability to watch in slow-motion and freeze frame. along with the right foot plant at full reach back, i've also noticed something else.

it seems like all the good players do the same thing, their shoulders are still facing toward the target even when the left foot crosses behind and touches in the x-step. the should rotation starts back as the right foot starts forward creating a torque between the upper and lower body.

i always rotated my shoulders back as my left foot crossed behind, but have been trying to change that since this observation. it feels very weird, definitely don't have the hang of it yet.

Yes very pretty; is there a little bit of OAT flutter on the disc as it leaves his hand? Does this mean everybody, even the best players, throw with a little smidgin of OAT?
