Default Backhand Drive - Please Review

Any feedback on my form is appreciated. Currently throw around 300-350 consistently/accurately on my drives, but stuck there. Looking for specific details to help get out to 400+

I use a 3 finger powergrip (stacking pinkie on ring finger), with 4 finger I get same distance just not as comfortable.

Also put my standstill drive up, those are around 260-300.

Thanks in advance!

That's a spin out. You make your move forward before your weight transfers to the front leg and effectively have no reachback or weight transfer because of that. Your rear heel spins out backward leaving your weight back or reversing back.

3-4 min in pay attention to Dion:

Default Thanks!

Thanks sidewinder, great simple way to explain it and two great vids as well. Hadn't seen the golf one yet. I do *get* this concept, however I'm having difficulty training myself out of my current technique. If you or anyone has thoughts on how to break my bad habit I'm all ears.

Hours and hours a week not caring where or how far you're throwing the disc.
