So just to be clear that I understand what I'm seeing vs what's being said here. Does/should the front knee/hip start to pivot forward as the heel comes down? It seems like I'm seeing that from the top pros. When the rear hip starts to swivel forward before the weight is fully on the front foot, the front leg needs to start to pivot slightly to anticipate the weight/swing. Edit: to be specific forward, not around/rotate.

I started to feel today a delay/stretching of the reach peak reach back make the disc boom out. Hopefully I can continue the feeling, but it felt like what I see out of Eagle/Simon where the peak reach back happens and the lower body moves forward while the pull seems to suspend in anti gravity (don't know how else to describe it).

Sounds like the definition of a spin out.

Yeah if you watch this classic clip, you can see McBeth and Schusterick turn closed into the plant. Foot gets more and more closed as the heel is coming down. Feldberg as well gets the front leg more closed at the last instant. Jerm gets a slight pre-opening as he is planting. His form is the most meh/plain out of a lot of the top tier I find, but he can get away with it because of his size I guess.

Still so much that sucks. Early backswing, head out of rhythm, opening the front hip early, opening shoulders early...

I've finally committed to the hop. It's the most consistent for me off the tee box, and I'm absolutely smashing right now. As long as I get my shoulders turned all the way back, and that rear side weight comes down, the disc explodes out. I can finally feel the weight of. The rear side as I'm pulling the disc into the pocket.

This ^ one is way better. Still need to turn back later balanced inside rear leg. Brace more dynamic upright on front leg, finish with front hip stacked right over ankle/knee. Lower arm also looks a bit low swinging.

I'm getting more effortless distance and better angle control right now. I bought a RocX3 (loving this disc btw) and I was throwing it as far as my teebirds used to fly (in the 330' range). I was practicing some standstills to see if I could get the technique I was applying in the x/crow hop to translate, and the standstills were bombing as well. It's a little harder to control release angle throwing full bore from a standstill, though. I'm hugging myself a bit here and maybe that's where the release angle issues are coming from, but I think there's a lot of good things going on in my swing right now.

Backswing looking good, but your front side(move part 2) is still spinning out. Looks like your knee about snaps into hyperextension.

If you had some actual weight in your hand instead of that towel it would pull you with it and most likely hurt your arm. Go toss some hammers!

Posted this on reddit and figured I'd throw it in here as well. Huge anny flex shot with a destroyer out on Moraine hole 15. I can see where I'm getting better and where the distance is coming from. I can also see the issues with the hips in and just after the transition, but I have no clue how to correct them. Just going to keep grinding.
