Help me with my form- x step

Awhile back I decided to start driving with standstill/one step with my front foot. I just started adding an x step in. I usually drive with my fairway drivers; rivers, 2012 ace race, & teebirds. On average I can get about 300 feet or so with an x step. When I get it "right," and the throw feels good, I can do about 330-340ish, which is not as often as I want. Here is a video of me:


Let me know what I need to do better.

**hold on** video edit in process

You need the basics of a disc golf throw vs a beach frisbee. You're not getting your elbow forward and extension through the shot. Your aiming will change to feel way more backwards and you will have to close your stance when you get the elbow chop. Your balance also needs to change to be more between your feet and over the toes.

yeah, your elbow really isn't getting pointed at the intended target. You are rounding rather than pulling through on a straight line.
