There is just a focus shift you need to make. I wouldn't think about it as "plant then swing" as if it is a timing thing. You literally cannot swing correctly without planting first and 'crushing...

I get ya haha, for real. The dingle arm isn't just willy nilly whipping either, but the concept is what you want to center the thinking around in my personal opinion. You still have to send that arm...

I had this problem also, and would bet it is being caused by rotating your shoulders early. Try to stay a bit more closed longer, and go slow to see what is happening with the disc at release. The...

Yep, this is what I meant basically. But the back-hand is reversed with how one uses the full chain, compared to just throwing a ball/rock with your dominant hand.
