DFX makes a 'power ball' that is a remake of the 80's dynabee, a gryoscopic exercise tool made specifically for grip. I keep mine in my car and use on on the road so that I don't lose any time at home.

However, I think the best exercise for disc golf is to disc golf as often as possible once your muscles have recovered from the last outing. I stretch to speed that up, work out any knots that develop in the shoulder/neck area but the muscle that I found hides the best in just below the shoulder. If you put the tops of your fingers on your throwing hand up against the opposite armpit and raise your throwing elbow up and around a bit, you'll feel it. It will hurt and that is the spot I rub out that allows me to recover faster and go out twice a week. Once all day on the weekend 8-9 hrs and once mid week for a few hours. BTW, I'm 50 yrs. old just for reference sake.
