Or do you say that you should come out of the reach back and dont apply power till you see the basekt again ? Is this what you mean by only use your arm for disc positioning ?
you are starting your pull too early. you shouldn't try to apply force until you have visual contact.
most pros don't even complete their reachback until after their pivot foot hits the ground.
While barely hitting 350', I've been dealing with a recurring shin injury that I discovered was coming from me going for the reachback at the beginning of my second step. Derp! A whole new world awaits.
