To address the target yo will be completely on the front leg, the rear heel will have lifted off the ground and the toes will just be in contact for balance.

You're starting everything leaning away from the target, rather than having that athletic tilt forward so that you are "attacking" the teepad and carrying yourself down momentum line in balance.

Wow that's impressive for Discraft.

If that keeps up this season then Innova will really wonder how bad they shot themselves in the foot not believing Paul's value to the competition.

No that's not right...if viewed from the side, you should be standing upright with spine directly over right leg in one leg drill. It's not a heel/toe thing, it's a lateral toward front of teepad...

Yep, this is true so I notice the body language of the person and act appropriately.

Those do look nice. Seeing as I'm only on my 2nd Firebird in 5 years, and only because I lost the first one, those would last me a LONG time.

Try one leg drill or balance on the left leg...can either swing a hammer with left arm to mirror RHBH or with the right arm to mimic RHFH or the backswing of RHBH. If you feel how to be in balance...

The name is pressed or melted into the bottom of the flight plate with some sort of machine or the mold itself...not sure how it works, rather than being written on the flight plate by a person.
