I keep my index finger curled under the rim. My putt changes weekly. I made this clip so I could see my wysocki putt. This putt is about 22-25' out.

Actually if you are inside of 10 m and your trailing foot steps forward of your lie before you establish your balance after putting, then it is a foot fault.
There were a couple putts that looked like his trailing foot would have landed in front of his lie if we could see his feet. But since we can't, for all we know his trailing foot landed to the left of his mini which would be ok.

Uh, that's what I said (and what you quoted)?

It's not a foot fault just because you move your off stance foot.

Only if you break the plane of the circle.

I think you should putt with your middle finger out.

Great video. I love Wysocki's putt but I can not tell much benefit from the little foot step. I almost do better focusing on my arm as a lever and not picking my feet up at all a la Lacastro.

Outside 25-30 feet I just can't get enough power without lofting it pretty high. I have discovered that if I go up on my toes I can get an additional foot or so on my ending arc. That doesn't sound like a lot but I clang a ton of shot off the front of the basket from that distance so this little change has made a big difference. I just have to get the timing down.

On your grip, is your pinky pushed into the rim and pushing the disk into your palm? I tried this tonight as I usually spread all my fingers (except index which is where yours is) under the face plate. It felt like I had a little more power but it was harder to pop the disk up level and it kept coming out on more of a semi-severe hyzer.

PS. Is that Ratatat you're listening too? Which song?

I'm holding my pinky finger against the rim. This helps when summer heat causes slippage. Hyzer release, with a nose up roll. I went extra wide in my stance in this clip- keeping the disc flat. Pandora mix.

Nikko has better core strength and balance. I'm sure he gets power without leveraging his feet off the ground.

Wow, how can you say foot fault without even seeing his feet? Unreal. If you don't like him, why bother looking in any thread he starts?

Thanks for sharing Bradley. Anytime I get to see a high rated pro's technique it's cool.
