So I watched the video and made an attempt at that. Not doing it perfectly yet but was getting really clean releases and virtually no off axis torque. Can also see in this clip that my right leg appears to naturally "crush the can" so maybe a start in the right direction.

I mean hell, I most took out a deer lol

Now get your left elbow/lower arm in front of your body/in your center - hold a beverage, you leave your elbow behind your backside away from your center and creates slack through the body, so that your front elbow mirrors that issue as your front shoulder collapses/hugging yourself. You should be pulled taut at top of backswing so everything moves forward together. Your arm is continuing out around your center counterclockwise as you are going clockwise instead of the disc starting to coming forward into your center.

Make your backswing Inside-Out to top of backswing. You are going Outside-In.

OK, I got to the field yesterday to do some more work. I had kind of a revelation regarding rotating my shoulder and it lead to the cleanest, flattest, and straightest throws I've ever pulled off. This video was taken before that part clicked but I think my hip rotation, timing, and left arm are much better in this one. The throws basically went goal post to goal post in the soccer field plus some change since I was throwing diagonal. This one should hopefully be edited in a way that makes it easier to evaluate.

I'm not a big fan of the diagonal camera view. Looks like your stance is open to your line and your balance is behind your heels/seated position with disc coming through inside your knees instead of being more upright athletic balanced more over your toes and disc coming through over/outside knees.

What would you suggest to get a truer camera angle? If you look at throw #2 my back heel never touches the ground and I fairly certain my balance was over my toes but cant be certain - many throws that day lol

It's a friction glove for ultimate. Its been raining every single day here for weeks so the grass was super wet and toweling them off can losefeffectiveness after a while.

I actually find I can get more snap with them but mostly importantly they keep my hands from being torn up and callused. I'm a paramedic and a freelance musician so the fingers on my left hand are like rocks from the fretboard. If I lose the ability to feel a weak pulse and palate veins in my right I'll be ineffective at my job lol

So what am I still doing wrong? Other than. The glove lol

Looks like the same throw. Stance looks open. Shoulders open. Looks like your lead elbow is tucking down into your side during the throw instead of being pulled out wide centrifugally.
