Totally agree. I estimate 80% of my nose up issues come from being caught in between.

The other 20% are something else. I have a few throws where I know my balance is good but something weird...

I liked him at first, just seemed like an enthusiastic amateur trying to help. His 550' throw doesn't look like a super-windy day or a big elevation change, so I'll take him at his word on that. I...

I get turned around on this stuff. I seem to recall some contrary remarks here mentioning internal-to-external. At peak backswing some people have their lead shoulder internally rotated and their off...

I suspect that in a very loose and general way you're right about the lever and balance characteristics. But there are too many other variables involved for it to be all that determinative. Raw...

This idea of the "real" issue is useful. Symptoms vs root causes. Of course for me there's always several things that need fixing, but I do find that in general, I need to fix things from the ground...

That sounds a lot like the Bonopane grip. I messed around with that a while back. It's amazing for throwing nose down, but for me any advantage was offset by making it very hard to hang on. It's just...

Both you and dehaas mention this "inside the ball" idea, but I'm not quite visualizing it. I've never pitched and have barely played baseball. Also, thanks to DGCR, I've learned I have apparently...

Thanks, that's great stuff. I was throwing all mids or putters and will continue on that, though I don't have too many understables in those (neutral at best).

As far as the run-up goes, my...

Thanks so much for all the helpful replies! I did a short bit of fieldwork yesterday and focused on two things:

- stay loosey-goosey until the hit
- clench fingers at the hit

I also wanted to...

Thanks. I was watching that part frame by frame as well. When I read "clenching into palm", that is not what I see Koling doing there. His fingers snap back a little bit, but never really get close...

Interesting. I've watched quite a few videos of pros and it looks like their fingers (at least one finger; it's often hard to isolate on the videos) remain extended. For example:

Forehand: release or rips out?

My forehand drives are...a work in progress (to be charitable). One of many things that are not clear to me: do you release, or (as in backhand) does the disc pivot so hard that it rips out?

I...

Yes, I think you can see the push against the collapse. If he was just remaining bent and "absorbing" all that momentum (and he takes a big run-up!), I bet he would topple over more, and his knee...

This is good stuff. It's harder to do than it sounds, though I'm slowly making some progress with it. I find that I sometimes delay too long and then my backwsing is truncated and everything comes...

I think this is key. I get into my own head too much and try to think my way through the movement (esp. The Move™). And I wind up, as another user here helpfully pointed out, trying to execute a...

Sorry, I meant your OP "good" drive. You can see the left well in the 549' video (but I still can't quite visualize what to do differently).

Can you go into a bit more detail on the bolded part? Is this just a powerful Swivel Chair drill idea? Left side is a bit cut off at the critical moment in your 549' video.
