Talking Looking for some feedback

Hello,
I'm looking for some general feed back, possible ways to improve distance. I mainly throw dx teebirds and rocs, recently I added a star leopard to the bag. Teebirds and leopards end up in the 300-320' range and the rocs go about 260-280'.
Thank you in advance,

Also I'm not sure if I uploaded the videos correctly as I'm working off of my tablet.

reach and pull look good. Weight is back a bit, but overall very smooth.
Edit: pull was a little low with the DX teebird.

Thank you for the observations.
I've recently started focusing more attention on my weight transfer, at the end of my drive I'm struggling with my momentum carrying me forward off the end of the tee pad. When I watch videos of some of the pros driving they're just about always balanced over their plant foot, some of them don't even have to set down their left foot right away to maintain balance.
If I were to try to stay balanced on my right foot only at the end of my drive I would be on sitting on the ground 9/10 times. Is it their near perfect weight transfer that allows them to remain balanced so well?
And is it something worth working on to improve my driving?

Yes and no.....but you hit the nail right on the head with where you are losing most of your distance. They maintain that balance because after they plant and pull half way they are completely (or mostly) rotary from that point. The forward motion stops......thus creating more snap and arm speed. When you keep going forward you lose arm speed (when I refer to arm speed I am referring to the point when the disc is about even with your right nipple to release. Think of a towel snapping.......The end in your hand has to stop so the end that snaps can catch up and snap right? If your hand kept moving forward when you tried to snap the towel you wouldn't get it to snap right? Its the same concept with your body more or less......If your are still moving forward at the hit..........well.......you ain't gonna hit.....

This can be an easy/frustrating at times fix.......I would recommend start it from a stand still first.......Then building from there. Also try to get a video of yourself from behind the tee. It looks as if you may be pulling a bit from behind your body instead of straight back. Also you are not loading your hips on those throws.....When you reach back your right butt cheak should be pointed at your target and when you plant you should stagger that plant foot out about 30degrees left. Right now you are stepping straight out and your hips are already open before you even plant

Thanks for the observations and tips.
I'll put some work in on planting my right foot a little further to the left. Also, I'll try to get a couple videos from behind this weekend.
