Back leg - bent or straight? Two clear forms on tour.

I've noticed that the back leg comes in two very different varieties from elite throwers - very bent or almost straight. I haven't been part of this forum for 10+ years but it seems like this doesn't get talked about that much. Maybe because it's not important?

Mostly a musing - but curious if there is a consensus on this.

Is the rear leg straight, or bent, or moving in locomotion?

I think locomotion seems to be the best answer there. It's just interesting to see someone throwing 700+ in such a different position. My initial post was about the rear knee - but it seems like that knee likely also correlates to the weight being more back.

I think Feldy has his weight(CoM) about as far back as Kuoksa.

Kuoksa has a lot of hip mobility and is extremely athletic.
