I think i noticed that i released the disc late and was standing too tall. However i did pivot on my heel. Also on the second throw, i was less tall, but could not pivot on my heel and caused me to trip.

Slow down a little and accelerate through-- even in slow motion it appears you are moving quite fast from the initial start of your throw to the end. Slow and smooth = distance and control

Classic issues...arm against the chest and swinging the disc around instead of through straight leading with the elbow. Weight is back at the hit, and hips are already open at the plant. Balance is too far behind your heels.

Sidewinder, I'm not judging your teaching, but I have a question. How far can you throw?

Some guys are great instructors, but can't perform what they teach, and that's fine. Others are able to tell us, then show us how it's done.

Which are you?

Yep, bring the disc close to chest, not the elbow.

How far? Today in flurries and wind chill in teens, out of 3 shots it was 400' with a new 172g Beast in an unfavorable 20mph right to left cross wind.
