Very well put together video by Eagle. I don't think I've tried putting the ring finger on the edge of the rim like he shows here.

I love that Eagle took the time to do such a lengthy video trying to break down his form.

And Simon did a side by side comparison to his form. Glad to see the FH content:

Not criticizing Eagle's content, but this is germane:

It's funny because when Simon does frame by frame and looks at Eagles elbow position he expresses how weird and natural it looks. I'm not sure if he says it, but you can tell he looks concerned about injury. All I know is my arm CANNOT do that.

The late elbow cock does increase distance though. But obviously that won't help if you can't play disc golf in 10 years lol

Eagle is a bit of a freak - long, lanky, limber, not overly muscular, young. He could possibly keep throwing like this and never have a problem. Who knows, some pitchers can go their whole careers without issues, some get Tommy John surgery in high school.

Yep. That freak also said that he improved his distance by throwing overstable discs as hard as he could until his arm fell off. What a freak, like seriously

Maybe but I'm not sure that is necessarily true.... It might be because of how much and effective he is using his lower body, leveraging off the ground. And that cock of the wrist is absurd. His long arms and lankiness doesn't hurt either.

Eagle appears to have changed his mechanics.
You can see Simon doing what Eagle used to do with the disc leading the elbow.

Oh yeah, you're right. About 440 in Simon's video. Eagle leads with elbow simon starts to lead with disc...
