Default Hyzer Ale fixes his form

I've decided to finally reach out for help on my form. For a little background, I have been playing for about 10 years. I am currently 940 rated. Backhand, I average about 350-375ft. with my Wraiths (consistent 400 on good days), 330-360 with FDs, 290-325 with the MD3 and 260-300 with the Reko. I took the below videos earlier this week and see 2 different issues that I am having. 1. Rounding: I feel like my pullback gets inside of my body too much. 2. Timing: There seems to be a pause in the back of my reach back which leads to a loss of power for me. I am looking for advice, and drills that I can do to fix my issues. I don't have a lot of time for tournaments this year so I decided that it is the perfect time to finally focus on my form this year. Thank you in advance to anyone that is able to offer me some help.

This video is from behind of me throwing on a slight hyzer about 350'. The first 2 throws are Wraiths and the next 2 are an FD2 and an FD.

This video is a head on of me throwing on a slight hyzer about 330' slightly uphill

This last one is from behind of me throwing an MD3 and almost acing. I posted this one because when I threw it, in my head the form felt perfect (for me) but it obviously could use some work

Yeah you are moving too right to left across the teepad to counter your arm collapsing and hooking release. You are also tipping your upper body back and forth over top your lower body instead of shifting your lower body forward ahead of upper body to catch in dynamic upright balance.

You need to stride straighter down the teepad and keep your upper arm wider from body.

Ya, that is what I kind of suspected. I will look over what you posted and work on it for the next few weeks and post an updated video. Thank you for your help!
