Have you tried getting the disc out in front of you during your x-step? You mentioned you added a pump but it's barely noticeable and I wonder if adding something like McBeth or Schultz could help...

Stagger looks fine and honestly, a perpendicular plant works for most people. There's something off about the way your momentum is transferred. I think the main issue is the lack of brace but it...

It looks like the "jamming" you're seeing is the result of not bracing with your plant foot--it should feel like you are planting to make a cut away from the target. You're getting your weight onto...

Stride Length and Timing Help

The issue isn't about whether to involve the off-arm or not, but what it's doing. What you are calling a "whip back" is actually a fairly passive motion to set-up the active counter swing to the...

The last C-CD2 I picked up was surprising nice for this slot. Really straight with a consistent fade.

Lone Howl or new Dark Maul might work, but if you want to avoid a signature disc, try a C-CD2.

Can anyone compare the stock DD3s to the flat Glow C-Line PD2s? Looking for something with a hint of high-speed turn but still reliable finish.

Try the birdie (looks like you are flippin' the bird) grip Sepo demonstrates. Not the "putting" grip at the very beginning but the throwing grip he demonstrates starting around 1:10.

Used the recommendations to make a shortlist and spent some time at Marshall Street.

I ended up going with the Stone Steady. Hand-feel is very similar to a Wizard--a bit thinner, a bit flatter.

Did you pitch? Forehand drives are much more like a submarine/sidearm pitch than it is like a fielder's throw.
