Default Fine tuning my backhand.

It feels like I need to not be so upright and that my follow through is weird. Let me know if you see anything else I might need to work on. Thanks!

Your problem is you aren't upright enough actually. You tilt back like crazy on reachback and fling yourself forward past your brace. Here's screenshots against McBeth.

You're tilting and twisting open, and it looks like your hips aren't actually putting anything into the throw. Your back foot is facing completely backwards. The huge tilt also makes it look like you're throwing directly down into the ground.

I would focus on keeping upright and balanced between your insteps, with a reachback and throw all on plane. Lots of SW22's videos will show you proper athletic balance drills.

Cheers man, thank you.
I actually threw that one around 330. But man, I totally see what you are saying. To the field for work tomorrow.

Yeah I wouldn't doubt that you did, just saying that you are likely doing some other wacky stuff to make the disc fly out there when your other angles are sloping down like that.

I also noticed that your rear hip and leg seem to be going up/backwards to counterweight your upper body from throwing your face into the ground. Look at McBeth's rear knee and hip, they are driving forwards underneath of him.

This is all good because it means you have distance to gain with shots that feel they have less effort.
