Still capped at about 430-450 right now; on average I am throwing much much much better lines though. I step up to tunnel shots with nothing but confidence.

At home, I keep playing around with the hip movement in the throw. I THINK I'm still struggling to lead with the right hip after the X-Step - it's like I want to lean over a little bit to get the right hip/leg moving targetward. Your point about the reach back feeling shorter is making a lot more sense now, though.

I think the way the sequence should go is the right hip leads and the upper body doesn't turn back until it has to? Hope I'm saying that properly. So what's going on now is after the X-step I'm turning my body away as I stride but I think that's causing the lean/tip over still whereas it should be stride until the upper body catches?

It's the only way I can think of that allows the hips to stay in the proper position where right is higher than the left. Hope I explained all of that properly :P

I think your head position is what is causing you to tip over. Your lower body action is pretty good, and it must be to be throwing 450'.

Here looks really good, but from here you start throwing the upper body forward. This isn't what you would do if you wanted to plant into the ground and stop the momentum from the ground up:

Yeah - I'm still struggling getting this step down at least in my actual throws.

When I go through the motions at home I can always get myself into a position where the disc feels heavy and you can feel the brace in your right foot but I'm not feeling it in a throw, itself. Maybe it's because I'm moving slowly that I can get everything into proper position and when I go to throw a real shot the "pace" gets my body out of whack.

Also, in the 2nd picture; the right knee is inside the right hip allowing the tip over to even happen.

I've also lost some distance in my quest to figure this thing out, too :P I'm adamantly trying to get in some field work to record but it's been consistently 35 degrees and very very strong winds the last few weeks

Like I said, I think I'm getting close to nailing this down.

I have much better ideas of how things *should* work but as Feldberg says "The hardest part is doing them"

ALSO - I won't be happy until I'm in the 500+ club! :P
