MJ, how do you grip the comet? That bead causes me all kinds of trouble. So far my Comet is writing a novel about what's wrong with my form. But it's apparently in a language other than English.
I use a stacked/fan grip for everything. But keep it out in your fingers and dont grip the hell out of it. Nice and loose so you can use the small muscles in your hands and fingers

I once got to play in a foursome that was pretty awesome. It was Vegan Ray Parish, John Biscoe, Chris Hysell, and myself.

Any chance you could take a picture of this, MJ? I understand the fan grip part, but keeping it out in the fingers is a little puzzling to me. Do you not have the disc touching your palm at all? Just having trouble putting this into effect and seeing how you can still generate power.

P.S: I know a million people have said it, but thank you for keeping up with this thread. I haven't posted here until now, but I very much enjoy reading your responses.

Thanks, Anon! Great video. I feel like I've been gripping the crap out of my discs and I want to try this out to see if it helps me ease up.

I recently lost my go-to hyzer flip, arrow straight fairway driver, 166 Star Eagle X. What would be the equivalent Discraft disc or another Discraft disc I should consider for that shot? There is a huge hole in my bag without it...

Went to Infinity's End yesterday, near University, and they didn't have any XL's, Leopards or Eagles...not even a rack. I guess I shouldn't have been surprised...
