Spin putting grips

I spin put with relative success but I have trouble with the disc wobbling occasionally during my release. I want to know what kind of grips great spin putters use like Eric McCabe or Michael Johansen? I am using the basic fan grip now my index curled around the rim and my other 3 fingers fanned out underneath. Any and all advice would be greatly appreciated.

When I get wobble it's usually less about my grip and more about having more of a push putt than spin putt, if that makes any sense. Instead of a quick flick of my wrist for the spin, I end up using more arm to push the disc.

I'm pretty sure EM uses the power grip for every shot - he said this in one of his video's. I tried using the power grip for putting but I just don't get the consistency I like so I'm using the fan grip with my index curled just under the rim instead of along the rim. I feel i can keep the disc more stable with the index finder under than outside the rim.

If you are making the putts, let it wobble. most of mine do.

the only time i spin putt is when i am outside of the circle and am doing a step through putt. when inside, straddle or jump i use a push putt. either way i get a little bit of wobble with all of my putts

I spin putt most times and agree.

But when it is a problem and not going in I find tightening my grip is what fixes the problem. When I putt I now have a 4 item check list in my head, a good grip is one of those four.

To go at it, follow thru and keep my chin up. Not always in that order.

my thumb creates the grip by putting pressure on the top with the middle finger directly below. My index finger is on the rim. Therefore my magnets get pressure spots on them over time that makes them look like bangers but worse.

My Grip: I use my pinky against the inside of the rim with the rest of my fingers fanning, thumb is flat on the top plate with a small portion of my thumb pad as well. For more spin I will move my thumb towards the center of the disc.
