During a full x-step throw should the rear foot be completely flat footed before the reach back so you can create that leverage off the rear foot just like in the open to closed drill?

I try to delay my reach back until my rear foot is on the ground but since I'm just on my toes it seems to spin out and lose all the leverage.

I think it depends on speed vs stability. The quicker/hoppier the x-step, the more on toes/plantar flexion spring, less flat footed you will or should be. The slower lower the x-step, the more you need stability(ankle) and more likely to ground heel for balance/leverage.

You will often see Eagle with the rear heel down, but GG never.

I've been overlooking this and I think this is one of my biggest leaks of power. So I need to kinda hop over my left leg and land more on my front leg to speed up my weight shift? I've been trying to wait until my front foot plants before I start coming forward, but it seems like I just get frozen on my back foot. And it makes sense why now.
