Just wanted to have a little survey on how people pivot on theyre lead foot on the release, I myself am off the front toes and ball of my foot.' Ive only noticed my friends going off the heel, so far Im the only one not to. I wonder whats most common?

Ball of my foot here.
Ball of my foot... I can tell because that is where my shoes always wear out.
i end on my toes and right behind them .......whatever that is called?
unfortunately I don't pivot...that's why my hip is f**ked up.
heel initially, then transfer to toes at about the time my foot is pointing at the target.
toe to heel to toe through your throw. good rhyme
mines kinda like putting out a cig w/ the front of my foot
I lead off with my left and pivot the ball of my left on release.

I'll go along with Mason on this... I tend to land either flat or with a little more weight on the heel... once the rotation starts the weight transfers to the toe... Seems to be like dancing... a little twirl action going on
This is something that has officially plagued me for about a year.

I see the real power throwers and all the pros use a transition from heel to toe. Basically your pivot point starts at your heel and ends with your toe's/ balls of your feet. Its actually something i asked Avery and will post his response once i get home. Lets be honest why not ask a huge arm guy where his pivot point is when he is crushing one out there.
hey now,I basiclly deliver disc with a picher's stance.One/two steps,but I'm pivoting off my left foot and ending with full side of right foot with toes/balls of my feet.Distribute the weight and push with the back left leg/foot.I throw mainly RH.
It has a lot to do with the balance during that portion of the throwing technique. When you first make the final plant step you should plant down with either your toe or your foot flat but pointed sideways. As your body pivots, your body weight will shift and will need to rotate on the load bearing, center of axis of your lower leg which is your ... Read Moreheel. Then when finished pivoting and finishing your throw, your body should be carrying forward at this point and finishing off on you toes again.

Just remember that it goes "toe to heel to toe when finishing the throw".

Hope this helps you out. Good luck!
