1. You might not be really pivoting your hips and shoulders for power. I'd guess that you're pulling through from the back of your reach back, thus you're strong arming it.
2. Don't actually pull until the disc is around your right pec area. It's a late pull and feels weird, but that's where the best power you will get comes from.
3. Probably no wrist extension and weak snap. You need that little bounce back then rip and extension to really throw snap onto the disc.
4. When you reach back, you reach back inside and then when you pivot, you pull the disc around and it's coming out way early. You need to try and get the disc into your right pec area before your chest comes around. It really looks like a sling effort but if you stop the video when the disc is coming out, you'll see your arm is across your chest and the disc is coming out before you get to any wrist extension area.

Becoming more comfortable with it I mean. What I have noticed is this, and maybe you guys can tell me if I'm on the right track or not:
The way I was throwing before, I discovered that I was dropping my elbow at the point the disc starts moving into my chest, and as the disc is coming across I begin turning my torso and shoulders, and then releasing shortly after it passes the right side of my chest... Once I noticed this, a lot of things discussed on this board began to click into my head and make sense, including some problems I have had in the past.
I think this definitely was the reason for some OAT problems I have had, and would also account for some of the early release problems I have had.
Since this discovery, I have been keeping the elbow pointed at the target, up until the disc gets roughly to the right pec region. At this point, my shoulders are turning towards the target and the elbow stops pointing and the lower arm slingshots out and I'm releasing more in front instead of 'alongside', where it was before. I haven't gotten out to measure any distance increases or not, but I will say, that I had a star wraith which used to turn over a bit, then fade back left slightly before. Now, I am punching it out much faster on a straight line with not much fade at all. A few of my other discs are doing the same thing now. Which leads me to believe I'm getting more on it than I was before. I can definitely feel more 'rip' as the disc leaves the hand than I was before, that is when the timing is all right anyway.
So, on the right track with this?
