Focused on not letting my rear foot slide. I like this pendulum feeling, because it feels almost identical to when I got it 4 years ago with a disc. I feel like I can just go back to the field and get that feeling to work with a disc again.
The leverage looks a little better but still a little slippy. I have done a lot of lever, kettlebell, and sledge swings/throws at this point and still learn things kinesthetically - I think in your backswing, you are not balanced fully onto the rear leg.
Watch how SW ends up with his plant toe pointed into the ground with his heel all the way up starting 1:31 here. I still find it very helpful to let the backswing wrap me alllll the way back like that with light levers or a disc to feel the coil and balance "on top'' of the rear leg.
Regardless of the size of the swing arc, that's the action you want. When you bring it back to kettlebells or big hammers etc the size of the move of the heels can depend on the swing arc size, width of stance but you should be able to get that combo of firm leverage into tthe ground each way, and a smooth roll of the feet each way. As we know, easier said than done
