Any help would be appreciated.
I always use a fan grip for putters and mids.

at 70' you should throw with a fan grip. i can get 150-160' with a fan grip on a putter, no reachback, but i've also spent a lot of time throwing an ultimate disc. from 60-150' i pretend i am playing catch with a friend. the idea is that your friend should have to move as little as possible to make the catch, and that you don't want to throw it so hard that it hurts to catch it.

also realize that (almost) no one expects to make shots outside of 60' with any consistency. you may want to make sure it has a chance, but generally you just want it to give you an easy clean-up. the best way to do that with a putter is throw it nose up with a little bit of anhyzer. the disc will lose a lot of its energy from the nose up angle and fighting out of the anhyzer, and drop more in a straight line rather than falling on the natural fade/hyzer. shots of that shape have a much better chance of going in if they happen to get chains.
I thought the Aviar was too light, I'll get some beefier ones.
The nose up/anhyzer combination you mention makes sense and ties in with Mashnuts suggestion to slow down. I'll give it a shot. Thanks.

Why can't I mark Bracketts Bluff as played? Can anyone else? Maybe because of the redesign?

Good question, I think it depends on the person, I never use a fan grip for mids, but if I am doing a short tee shot I will use a fan grip on a putter, but other then that its a regular power grip.


About the good rip, I don't think you should really ever be trying to rip a putter, it may be your actual grip on the disc or grip strength or something else in my opinion.

I use a 3 finger power grip off the tee with all discs. It's all a matter of personal preference.

And I use a 4 finger for every single disc. I do make sure that putters have shallow rims though or else I have had problems with grip lock. I stick with the zone (1.2 cm), pure (1.4 cm), and summit (1.2 cm).
