Yeah, that's my thoughts for now. I figure a good bit of D will come when I fix my weight shifting issues. I always felt like I was shifting my weight fine, but then I saw this video from Climo and realized I wasn't shifting my weight anywhere near as much as he is showing. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nv76JEe1qUo&t=0m33s
Several other things are changing right now as well, I'll list them here since other people might have some issues as well.1. Whip Concept:
Watching a few videos of specifically Will Schusterick and Nate Doss it finally clicked. I could SEE them "whipping" the disc rather than "throwing" it. I'm working on this now.

Using a modified version of Climo's grip. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vAV8kKURKaw&t=1m30s
Around the 1:35 mark he explains what his grip basically accomplishes, but his grip actually hurts my hand. Almost a binding feeling in the base nuckle of my middle finger. I dropped the pinky out of the rim making it more of a 3 finger grip and its much more comfortable but still stretches my tendons out to get a stronger "tendon bounce" 3. Pull through location:
A while back I noticed most of the top pro's have a picture out there somewhere in which they are holding the disc in this one position before the throw.. This is the best one I can find right now, but most of the pro's have very different styles of throwing but they all seem to get to this point somehow.
I felt through and realized in order to get to that position I had to pull through higher. I was pulling through more around my stomach (exagerating to make the point) than across my chest. This seems to have more power and get more of the snap feeling that I'm looking for now easier. In fact when I first realized I was pulling lower and did some "fake" pull throughs around my chest I felt it want to snap unlike I'd ever felt before.4. Weight transfer:
What I mentioned earlier Not actually gotten this in yet, but its next on the list. Too hard to focus on this and the others at the same time. Climo in this video talks about keeping your weight over the back foot and does so much more than I tend to. This should had distance once I get there.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nv76JEe1qUo&t=0m33s
