I mainly throw fh, peace sign grip, i normally have the rim of the disc directly on top of the first knuckle of my index finger.............if it's wedged all the way into my hand then i roll my wrist for whatever reason.

There's still plenty of flesh on his disc. If you're throwing for distance and using a lot of power, not having the disc in nice and tight will cause release problems.

THIS.

If palming a basketball is our new unit of measurement, I'm in the same boat. When the disc is wedged in, it hits the soft skin in the crease which seems to be the cause of OAT.

So I ask this - if wedging the disc is correct for distance, how do you have a clean release without the disc getting caught on skin?

Personally, I use a split finger grip and that leaves a lot less of that bump to get caught on when throwing because it flattens that part of my hand a little more. My hands aren't very big, so this may not apply to people who can palm a Bball.

for rhfh i normally let the inside edge of the rim sit evenly above that small line where your finger connects to your palm. i feel like it lets my wrist snap and it allows me to kind of pull a trigger with my fingers getting more spin on the disc
