I wasn't really focused on that today. I thought getting my pull straight would be the easiest thing to work on, so I did that first. I think a couple of times today I shifted my weight a little better, but I wasn't really expecting it, and my release angle ended up being low.

That's going to be the focus of my next few field practices. Do you have any drills etc. I should work?

I'm hoping I have a straighter pull here.
at 50 seconds you do a 3 step x-step but it looks like the rest of the time its 4 steps

or throw from a hill

The standing drill to get consistency in your balance is where I would start.

Start with your back towards the target and your feet planted in a comfortable position that you can turn and send a balanced shot towards the target. Repeat twenty or thirty times till you can really feel the balance in your body. Then try your standard run-up and hopefully you will feel the same good balance at the end of the shot. If after 10 shots you don't feel the better balance try starting over at the standing and then adding to your runup every 10 throws by adding one step at a time. Hopefully you will start to feel the better balance this time.

Honestly you will know if you are on balance simply by the flight path of your disc. Low means good, high means off balance...

Pause the video on each of your reach backs.
To me, it seems like you are too low most of the time, which probably affects your balance and weight shift.
That may or may not be the case -- I don't know.
The one thing I am seeing, however, is that there is a variation in the starting height of your pull from throw to throw.
That's bound to cause some inconsistencies.

I do start too low. I think that's what SW was talking about it "different position than feldy displays". The height of my pull changes from disc to disc, and is also somewhat inconsistent. One of the things that I'll be working on. Thanks for the input!
