Many thanks! I see all of your fingertips do touch the bottom of the disc (clear Evo Wiz). Is that same thing with Ion?

I use similar grips as yours for forehand and putting.

I need to work on OAT-free forehand, especially on max driving where I tend to crash and burn.

Is that for safety reason or other reasons?

Same here. I feel pretty good about my FH approach but drives are still quite sloppy. Managing to get a little more distance though, had some ~350' throws with my drivers yesterday.

Safety is the main reason. Lower environmental impact is another I can think of. If the fast and sharp drivers were really rigid they could do more damage to trees as well as people.

Had to throw something more technical, hope you don't mind.

Something went wrong. Please make sure you added the video correctly. Click here to see how YouTube videos should be embedded. There could also be a technical issue that's not your fault. Click here to view the video on YouTube's site. If this link doesn't work, you did something wrong.

Sick vid, Mike. After watching that I sincerely hope the low rating you alluded to in another thread will work itself out. Looks like a really neat course.

Mike, you need to rail at MVP for not having the Glow Ions out yet. Would have been the cherry on top in that vid.

I have some questions Mike...Are you using a tripod and filming this all yourself? Or do you have a friend filming? Why aren't there more people at those courses? They look beautiful.
