When you figure that out, you'll have figured out how to get a lot more out of your putter. A challenger isn't getting over powered unless you have a cannon, it's about eliminating off axis torque and throwing smooth rather than "hard". Spend time in a field, start with shorter throws and eliminate all the wobble, I think it's easiest to do that by throwing hyzers and making sure they don't flip up off that line at all and slowly pushing out the distance where you can do that.

I fan grip mine, approaches and drives.
I use yetis and I'm not sure I could throw other putters as well fan grip. The combination of tacky grip and shallow feel are perfect for a fan grip.

Just like anything else but often a bit more nose up/neutral.

one of my favorites. there is no such thing as overpowering a disc, just bad form.

Mostly pinch grip for putters. If it's a long enough distance that I would need to power grip it, I'd just rather throw a mid with less power.

I am using a power grip about 75-80 percent of the time, and use my putters for most shots under 280. If I want a stronger fade, I'll fan grip it because it gives the disc less spin, and I'll fan grip for touch shots under 100.
It was really nice out today so I took some wizards out for field practice. The warm weather was giving the discs extra glide that I haven't seen in months, and some of my drives were getting out around 350. It was F'n nuts, I love putters.

Same as anything else.. power grip I guesss. I tee off/approach with opto pures and those can handle a good rip if needed.
