Default Form Critique

I have been playing since Fall 2019. I can throw about 300 ft consistently sometimes more. I am decently accurate but struggle with wobble and want more distance and consistency. I also struggling with anhyzer on my disc at times. Any comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated, thank you!! I attached the link at the bottom, sorry I couldn't get it uploaded!

Looks pretty decent for six months or so. Your weight is stuck on the back foot during the swing and pushing your shoulder up and over, instead of shifting forward to front foot and letting the shoulder swing like a pendulum. Would recommend working from a standing position like a batter w/ a small stride, instead of the crouched x-step.

Wrist/disc looks slightly nose up:

hi,

i got very much success by changing my grip from 4 to 3 finger power grip. since then i got a smoother release and the discs flying nose down... mybe you give it a try?

and it seems that you change disc orientation from flat to hyzer in the last moment...but there's also maybe noseupe involved.
and maybe the x-step itsel shorter, the plant step a bit longer... find the rhythm... danny lindahl made a nice video about that

I noticed that today on another video I have of myself. Any suggestions on keeping the disc in the same angle to whole time? I can only notice it in slow motion. Not sure what I'm doing where I change the angle at the last second.
I will look that video up on the x-step, really appreciate the feedback 😁

try to hold the disc from the runup on in the angle you want it to get out of your hand...

i find that out in standing 90 to the target and spreading my arms on trajectory line...putting on the angle via bending more or less forward and then i "roll" the arm in, whilst the rest doesnt move. ... think of it like seeing the disc from behind. it maintains the same angle the whole time. it works because of your hinges... but essential is leaning a bit forward, at least for flat shots.

And what i mean with aiming and "rolling in" you can see it in a video i took a couple of days ago. i just dont curl the arm in, to get the elbow hinge out of play. i dipped und skydived until i started to keep the arm straight in the runup.

So, I aim bended forward, then i collapse my arm to 90 forward/45 down and try to keep that armposition/posture until the peak of the reachback... kind of works for me.

example at 3:04
