Generally I try to avoid slowing down my throw, ever.

First I'll disc down. If we're throwing teebirds 300' and rocs 250' and its a 275' hole, I'd rather throw the roc and have a 25' putt in most...

Well, I just read the OP and not the few pages that followed, so sorry if this has been said before.

I disagree with this line of thinking. Changing the grip isn't how you throw different angles....
