I might be starting to reach back like a normal human bean.

Yep, backswing looks better. I think you need to plant more with your front knee/foot hanging straighter/stiffer for more sudden weightshift - stick your front leg firmly into the ground like Barry Sanders going into a juke to change direction, rather than bending/flexing front knee as you plant. Your weightshift is happening too slow and you have a lot of front knee action going from quite bent to hyperextended and backing away from target - your rear foot also spins out, looks like you are trying to rotate too hard/much/fast and cheating your shift.

I'm really feeling the connection of the hips and shoulders. It's helping me rotate to release with my foot still braced. I'm having a bit of an issue with accidental high throws, but distance feels super easy right now. I'm pulling my Buzzz out on 330-350' holes which is a first. Disc is definitely coming out with heat and spin.

I like everything until just before you plant. You are trying to make your move too late off the rear foot.

Sorry for the bad angles here, someone put a refrigerator in my way. I'm feeling tension (spring) in my torso. Trying to figure out how to delay the shoulders, and still don't know how to brace/clear the front hip, but it looks a little better.

Looks a lot better to my eyes. I can see your hip clear much earlier than your arm swings through compared to a few of your more recent videos.

Yeah it's a little better, but still striding/staggering front foot too much to left, and late getting off the rear foot.

Well you are getting off the rear side, but not getting upright on front side to swing from. Note how your rear shoulder is behind your rear hip and knee so your shoulders/hips/torso have not been leveraged forward from the ground up and allowed to swing freely. Your head/chin is collapsing into/behind your front hip.

Current state of affairs. Not a ton of change lately, but my throw is more consistent that it ever has been. Getting plenty of distance to compete, just missing that next gear to beat the big boys. I'm 100% sure it's because I've got lazy pace, weird short reach back, and piss poor weight shift. I'm hitting lines and consistent out to about 400'. I've broken the habit of going to the field and trying to throw 100% all the time.
