Default kevdiv48's Driving Form- Please Critique

Driving practice in a field with 170g Star Teebird. Estimated distance of 325-350 feet on a tight S curve line.
A few observations:
I begin my reach back a bit early. I need to wait until my plant foot is completely down.
I could rotate my back even more. My head does not completely pull away from my front.
I do not reach back and pull through on the same planes. I still do a bit of rounding and the disc bounces up and down throughout the entire pull.
Any other observations, let me know. Thanks!

Weird camera angle. I can tell you are curling/rounding the crap out of it and not getting your weight forward or elbow forward and good extension through impact. Your timing into the backswing isn't bad, but it's all curling arm, twisting the spine and lean back too far past a braced rear posture. Turn your hips back and keep your balanced more centered between your feet. Your arm/disc shouldn't turn around back nearly as far as you do in the backswing, it should be more straight back from the target line, or even to the opposite side, it will feel very wide and not much like reaching back with the upper arm at least 90 degrees or more away from the shoulders. That will help you get your elbow forward of the front shoulder coming back forward. Your hit point should be like a foot closer to the target, like Dan Beto says in his driving tips vid, going from back here to up here adds anywhere from like 60-100' or more. Closed shoulder drill and snap 2009 would be a good start.

Another clip, this one from May and with a P-PD, thrown about 350 feet on a smooth turnover.
It's really clear on this clip how much rounding is going on. I definitely see how I need to pull straight back instead of to my right shoulder. The 90 degree+ angle that I need to achieve is definitely clear, too. Hope to get some more clips up after working on that.

You called it.

If you can hang a curtain or sheet from something, it's helpful in practicing a straighter delivery line.

Some throws captured from the past few months. I've gotta make sure to pull that right arm down and still work on minimizing rounding.

I think you have too much torso lean/tilt over your toes. The last Sheriff shot your rear foot is also pointed really far back.

Out of interest, how far is that DX Teebird and the Sheriff going for you?

Yeah, posture is folded/tipping over back and forth instead of being upright between your feet and tilted and turning further back and forth in the real backswing and forward swing. You need to keep turning back all the way to the plant(Door Frame Drills). The rear arm is also majorly not helping, you really crank the elbow back trying to "reachback" which torques your spine in a bad way, and then the arm is flung out away instead of squeezing into your body/brace and helping counterweight the throw and speed up rotation by bringing all your mass in tight/centered like a figure skater to increase spin rate.

You need to turn back and forth from your feet in the ground and the hips(not the rear arm) which turns the pelvis and ribcage/spine all back together as a unit without kinking up the spine. This is all going to probably feel very weird to you and totally counterintuitive to making power. Currently you are putting yourself into what likely feels very powerful, but it actually is very immobile/limiting range of motion and not athletic/quick/speed/acceleration. This is likely going to require taking a few steps back to work on progressing further forward.

You must unlearn what you have learned. - Yoda
