I think timing and weight shift are what's really important. Feldberg's swing style has a lot of moving parts and if you choose to mimic him, you might find you're burning a lot more energy throughout the round. The pre-throw pump (which he swings to eye level), pivot hop step, long reach back can give you distance, but you might have trouble using that form for accurate mid and putter throws, AND anhyzers. His pendulum swing is counter-intuitive to the anhyzer swing path, and translates to more moving parts and energy. He's used that style for years, so he's got the muscle memory and timing dialed in. I was using that style for a while, but chose to switch to a simpler swing.

Feldberg's style is a great of using to learn some basic technique stuff. I use it in lessons to illustrate weight shift during the x-step and keeping the front shoulder down. The Feldberg swing teaches both of these with ease. But as you said it can limit your shot selection unless you just want to throw hyzer flips for turnovers

Struggling with the sequence of my throw. Just bumping this up for those who haven't seen it.

Waking up this thread, because this is so crucial for learning to throw effortlessly.

If the first move isn't supposed to be spinning the hips then what should the first move be? After getting set in the x-step and the disc is behind, what should the order of movements be?

Shift to front leg and unwind everything. Should be automatic if your windup/backswing happens in correct sequence.
