Here's a short video of a field practice from today. I'm focusing on keeping the arm from elbow to wrist loose, while also trying not to tip forward over the knee as much. I had a video shot from behind as well, but it was too hard to see what's going on. Also, the ground is level here, but my phone wasn't. Sorry I wasn't able to rotate the video through my phone.

Terrible video, your front foot is leading your hips.

I've decided to disc down to putters & mids this winter while I'm working on form. All my field practice sessions are now standstill, but since I committed to a doubles tournament next month I'll keep using the X-step until that's done. I shot some video of the standstill throws, but they were just as dark and hard-to-see as the last video I posted.

Here is a shot from my first putter-and-mids-only round. This is a Champ Roc3 that went about 270-ish, which is almost certainly the longest throw I had on the day. It looks like the toes of my rear foot are turning backward during my reachback. I'd imagine that's costing me a lot of power; I'm not getting that coiled-up feeling (Door Frame Drill) throwing from the X-step that I do from standstill. That's frustrating, because it looks like the rear foot is in the correct position when it lands. What else?

Take your backswing Inside Out instead of Outside In/rounding. Keep your hand/disc/close to the wall all the way to the top of your fully extended backswing, your arm should be getting wider to the top: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FWasFdvnGio&t=365s

Here are a couple of standstill throws. These were both Roc3's. This is a downhill shot, so the high reachback (and low release point) was intentional, following Feldberg's advice from that recent clinic of his.

Your backswing is still rounding outside - in.

I went out and picked up a Comet, since those are supposed to be great form-working tools (plus I didn't have an understable mid and need one). What should I be looking for when I throw it?

I tried moving my thumb farther into the flight plate and pushing down with it, like in the DFP grip. Pretty much all throws like this ended up OAT-tastic, even though they flew just as far as with my normal grip. It seems like I'd get extra distance if not for the wobble. This is probably a really dumb question, but is there a way to smooth that out? Could it just be that my hands are too small for that grip (I wear a men's small Friction Glove)?

Probably just exaggerating another form or grip issue. DFP for me just puts the nose up.
