Please critique my form, looking to hit the 400 mark!

Been playing just over a year now, and im stuck around 300-350 on my drives.

Most of my drivers are usually around 300 feet, with some in the 325-350 range and rarely beyond. My Nuke SS is still my furthest flying disc on a pretty regular basis. I have measured my throws with a GPS so im not just tossing around numbers. I was throwing my roc3 and comet out around 250, and I tossed my KC-Pro Aviar out about 200-215 a couple times. Not sure if anyone is wondering or if this really matters, but I am 6'5".

This video is slowed .5x regular speed
http://youtu.be/J8qecAUM4Z4

This video is slowed at .25x regular speed
http://youtu.be/kq8SFy1QaSg

I appreciate any feedback, I'm looking to get better so I can start competing in the future.

-edit.. not sure why the videos werent embedding for me, so i linked to them.

I'm no expert, but you definitely are not getting your weight forward at all.

Slow down then accelerate at the hit. Your weight isn't getting forward and your not getting your hips away from your target.

Center your weight more between your legs, lean into the disc more, and stay on your toes. The only time you should be on your heel is when a proper weight shift forces a heel pivot. You should never try to be on your heel.

Also, you end up in a position where you're only throwing from your chest, like Brad talks about here.

Reachback should be more in front of the chest, less under the armpit.

You could gain the 60-100'+ Dan talks about by getting your release point further forward.
