Default stuck at 300' ... please help

I'd really love to get to 400' on my drives but that would mean I'd have to get past 300' first!

I'd appreciate your feedback. What are the first things I should work on? I think I'm reaching back a little early still. Also, I don't think I engage my lower body or hips. Also, it doesn't appear that I'm getting the disc in the power pocket but instead I'm rotating my upper body and rounding before the disc gets to my right peck.

Thanks for your time and assistance. I very much appreciate it.

1. Check your grip, nose angle. You are throwing nose up and swinging/finishing downward. Your elbow pulls in and drops under your disc/disc rises above elbow, instead of the upper arm pulled out taut and disc lagging/towed straight behind the elbow.

2. Your rear foot is pointed 180 away from target, should be closer to 135 to be able to leverage forward off the instep.

Nose angle is improved but not great. Follow through is still down but it hurts to follow through up or flat. Maybe old age and lack or flexibility is the issue there. I think I'm rotating my upper body before the disc gets to the power pocket. More feedback would be appreciated. Also, is there any free software or apps for slow motion analysis? Thanks all!!!

I think you are staggering your stance too closed, and getting stuck behind your front hip.

You also leave the disc too far back behind your rear foot or too early and your shoulder can't complete the backswing, and starts going forward early.

Shoulders need to rotate on more vertical tilted axis to allow the arm a high finish. Rear shoulder/arm should finish more like uppercut.

When you say I'm staggering my stance too closed do you mean that my front foot is too far out in front of my body instead of the heal of the front foot being in line with the toe of the back foot?
