You're right, his right foot should point further back for the full on Makron. But it is already pointing well away from the target-- i.e. on a 180 degree scale, a full half circle, if 0 degree is pointing at the degree, 90 degrees perpendicular to the target (which most people do), his right foot is at something like 115-120 degrees. Which is almost Makron-like-- except he doesn't know how to keep looking towards the target even when turning away from it: that's what ensures the whip-like uncoiling during the shot.

Here is Jaegoor showing two reverse steps and a half turn: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=arsckxqjGfY

C_A again, showing that almost reversed strong side foot: https://goo.gl/photos/HSAkDryF7UcQf4u79

Hector's power style is one of the most interesting to me, he moves like a Knight in chess Smiley His starting position is identical to the one he would use if he were slinging at a target along the direction of the path, but then he sidesteps and turns through 90 degrees to throw.

I think Hector over-compensates a bit to his left during release, but it's very nice style
