I see.  I thought people were saying there was a glaring problem with his form, but never figured out exactly what it was.

Imho, not enough hip turn for one. Barely turns them.

Interesting.  I think before I ever watched him swing I read a few comments saying things like "it's not surprising he hurt his back". Perhaps because I already had that in my mind, when I first saw the above, I thought I saw something that didn't look right w/ his hip firing, but couldn't put my finger on it.  It looked unnecessarily violent to me (but not from lack of turning), esp for his swing speed. Granted I am not good at analyzing swing mechanics.. everytime I see Spirnac my back also hurts a little.

He does seem to turn his hips enough, but it just looks out of sequence. He might be trying to get more "X-factor" or something? Whatever it is, I totally agree that his sequence does look pretty violent and prone to injury. Hurts me to watch it too. . .and on top of that he's not generating that much SS.

Actually I think it was @iacas whom I remember pointing it out and I was like, oh yeah. Watching the video, that's not a turn, that's a bump.

Hate the arm position here too. Shoulders very flat. Ugh.
