Forehand control grip

When I drive forehand, my grip is basically index and middle fingers straight and together against the inner part of the rim. However, when trying to fh an approach, this grip just doesn't work or feel comfortable. Any other grips out there for this type of shot? Pics would be awesome! Thanks peoples.

what I do is put my middle finger on the rim and the index out on the flight plate. More like a fan grip.

I only throw with one finger, it gives me many more release angles.

This works great for thowing mids and putters for me. It seems like it is a more stable grip for a shorter shot with not as much power. I can rip a buzzz out to 250' straight as an arrow. http://www.acerunners.com/hd-tutorials/?pi=52 this is the grip I use.

I should clarify I use this grip with mids and putters. I just use my pointer finger for drives. Like chrishysell said you can get more angles this way. It is sometimes a less stable grip but I have a ton of torque (I was a pitcher in high school) that usually stabilizes any OAT that may occur in early flight.

put your index and middel fingers in a V on the bottom of the disc then take your thumb and rest it on top. you can rest your index finger on the inside of the rim also if this feels a lil bit to akward at first.
