I'm too sore yet to try to learn the heel pivot properly. Carlsen measured repeated higher power (slight improvement) out of the heel pivot. Climo and Feldy suggest heel pivot for for easier pulling the disc on a line.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

Anyone else have any thoughts on this? I find I'm a toe guy. How much will this hurt distance and accuracy? The heel I have tried it and it just seems so weird for me

to me the thought of using toe just makes me think I'd lose power. On accuracy though? I don't think it matters there that much if at all.

I pivot on the heel. If I pivot on the toe/ball of foot it feels like I have shin splints.

My right knee loves the heel pivot. My left knee has no preference.
