thanks for the info: As long as no contact with ground to body part is forward of the lie before disc comes to rest then you are fine.

I have always thought that and never once thought a backwards fall on a putt was fault of any kind, sideways fall it is really hard to keep arms and hands from being over the lie in the end fall as the arms and hands are often over the lie in the first place when putting, sometimes even waist on up is over the lie.

Actual wording is

Disc at rest isn't involved.

Very important. It's you must demonstrate (not "maintain" balance) no closer than the rear of the marker (aka, no forward contact closer than your marker until after you have demonstrated balance behind it). Nothing about disc coming to rest.

If this is the case, can I jump straight up and land back behind my mini and be legal within 10m? I don't see how it would provide an advantage, except on elevated baskets, which are unnecessary anyway.

On another note, I kinda want to try to put after a long jump runup now. I'll have to try that later. I really shouldn't DGCR after midnight.

As long as you have a supporting point within the lie when the disc is released, you can do your gymnastics routine.

Yes. And you can walk by, etc.

Several examples are in this old video:

Wouldn't be legal since you have to release the throw before you leave the ground, negating any benefit of being higher in the air AFTER you release.

Bold part is completely not true. Show balance before moving forward has nothing to do with before or after the disc comes to rest.

How about no forward weight shift, like Sexton? I don't straddle, but I still don't shift from back to front foot and I've no backwards kick. Just a slight even upward spring.
