Default What part of the form do you think most decent/good amateurs slack off on?

Just interested in hearing different opinions about this.

I would count on getting off the rear leg early enough.

Guess it΄s that weight shift behind thing imo. Moving forward as you you do your backswing/leave the disc behind. Usually amateurs load up back and move forward with the swing in sync.

Most folks I see could incorporate a deeper reach back with more shoulder rotation in their backhand drive. Seems some people want to keep their eyes on the basket during the reach back which prevents them from rotating their upper body all the way.

That is also in the same thing I was going to say, about not having body turned all the way back. I see it not as a want to keep eyes on basket as a more eyes on the line they want to take if they know better then to look where the basket is and rather where the best shot line is. I was once one of these people until I found that being turned all the way back to the right spot works.

Also some do the exact opposite and turn too far back to the point all they can use in a X step Backhand are some of the most OS discs as they are then hooking most other discs slight OS and under to the right at the end of the flight. Most but not all of this stems from trying to use the Super OS discs that some of the top pro players use and having to overturn body to keep disc on the right flight path because they have attempted to use nearly the exact same set up of discs as a top pro (often male) not realizing the newer within first 2-3 years player needs to work into some of the discs these top players use. These are often players that take the first advice of using a putter slight OS and under as the only disc, then see a pro in the bag having seen what they use online and try to copy using those discs not knowing that the pro might have worked up to such discs, not starting with them right away. There will always be an exception of a touring pro who could throw ___ OS High speed driver on first throw 200-300 feet.

I think most players turn back too much and too early, then have to turn forward into the shot. They are initiating everything with rotation, rather than a lateral weight shift that turns into rotation on the front leg.

So they are throwing with a push off the rear leg, rather than anchoring themselves around the plant leg in balance to be able to pull the shot.

Basically they think speed, rather than balance and leverage.

I agree with everything that has been said already. I will add that nose angle control is lacking.

I just so happen to be in that category or getting closer to getting out of it, and for me its finger positioning and wrist action towards getting consistent results. Im RHFH
