Default Please Critique my form

This is my current form. I am throwing a 171g ESP Nuke that's only a few weeks old. I released flat and it turned over slightly went about 10 feet right and at the end came back those ten feet to land directly in front of me for a 400' total
(I know my little skip in the middle isn't right but it just feels bad when i get rid of it)

The first thing I noticed was the little skip but even many pros have weird footwork (josh anthon). The only thing I see is maybe you are pulling back too early and maybe you could pull closer to your chest. Looks like a pretty good line though.

(yeesh! why do people even post a critique video when they know they have a hop step?)

sweedish style... i hope. Took me a good 6 times pause/playing through the vid to see that it's not as bad as i first thought. But, here are some angles to work on...

1) you're having trouble gripping and holding the disc in forearm/shoulder plane. Look at how off-axis this throw is going to be:



2) break the habit of gripping the disc with your off hand on reachback. This is doing two things in your throw: reducing snap and overextending your reachback.



3) slow down your xstep, get rid of the gallop, and take shorter steps. your feet are toooo wide apart to transfer weight properly and completely. It's a shame too, because you have decent shoulder lead and spinal rotation (compliments). A better, more balance runup will allow a smoother follow through... which will be instant distance gain for you.

First thing to fix is you cross in front of your lead foot instead of behind.



Here's what it should look like


Second, your footwork is too long, which makes it so that you are not getting proper weight shift of your hips. Shorten up your footwork and fix the X step so that your back foot goes behind, and you should be fine.
