I haven't thrown many Ions, but going from Anodes the neutron/proton makes essentially no difference, while Proton Soft I've heard can be more stable...it's been similar enough for me. I just prefer...

Generally/overall about feel of what you're doing, your hips are opening a bit too soon as you are coming into the right leg. You should be more sideways onto the right leg and let it clear your...

Do you feel that bit of disc edge push/release during your forward pump?

They feel really gummy and they are generally pretty flat, but without the FAF stability. Basically they feel incredible and have that mellower Firebird flight. I don't disagree that it's similar...

That's the wrong direction. You're holding the hammer up at the top of each swing with your arm muscles and tossing/whipping it at the ground. You are kind of impacting downward as you land on each...

I don't...I tend to only be true to molds that are consistent enough that I can buy a replacement without worrying too much. Like with most putters and mids you know what you're getting every time,...

Way better. Your tempo and plant before swing is much better. So if you have this kind of ingrained, try to feel how you can extend or use your leg to pull the hammer down. You may feel your leg...

I think I've tried all of the classic and modern classic molds. The biggest generalization I think I can say is that with the older Innova popular/classic molds, you need to throw them already...

Try to have a bit more consistent stride direction down the same momentum line...not necessarily straight down your aim line but don't drift left as much during the final step. Like in the behind...

You're starting out between the feet with your arm in the top of forward swing...this should be 100% on right leg as this would be after release. Backswing is looking better to me but you're turning...

Very cool image. Where the left and right shoulder paths cross each other on the purple/yellow lines also makes sense to how it feels to me sometimes. The right shoulder is at this point roughly as...

Stance - keep a more neutral stance and shift your weight directly between your feet. You should feel parallel/centered like a golf swing setup. If...

You're getting your heel down before forward movement pretty much when moving to the left/backswing, but the focus/leverage isn't there. You are turning the trailing up forward/in front of your...

At first I was hoping you were going to continually spin the door for 2:27, and was looking forward to passerby reactions.

That's really good though...have to backswing in the same place by moving...

Yeah you're off by about 45 degrees of where your arm "should" be as you are landing in a step. This is what I'm seeing, and it prevents you from being able to use your lead leg to pump the arm...

Do you have a baseball bat? If so, I found it gave me way better feel than a hammer for counterweighting it with my body. I grabbed it right on the...

Oh yeah I can see my back foot doing that. At least it's not happening in the actual throw but I'll be aware of it.
