How do you and Chris Max throw so far with a fan grip? Do you have more pressure on the index or pinky? I can't seem to translate any power to the disc with a fan grip.

This is probably a better question for the CDGC forum, but since we have you as a captive audience...

I played last Sunday there, and it seems like it's still set up mostly in the World's layout. Any idea if/when it's going to go back to the full-on Nest/Web layout?

Thanks for taking the time for all the brain picking.
kinda i am. i am not sure we have a few things to do. Hopefully we can get them in after the holidays sometime, i'll ask and see what i can find out

the thing is, is that its not the pressure in my grip its how i let my wrist break and my hand and fingers tranfer the power and spin to the disc. A big key is to not lock the disc against the palm of your hand when you grip it, it should stay out in the fingers with it just touching the hand where your index and middle finger meet the hand

the pressure in the grip is a different topic, but you press up with the index and down with the thumb, thumb is pressing in between the index and middle finger in that space. and you press back with the pinky. the middle and ring fingers just control the flight plate, not a lot of pressure on them at all

No worries, I'll check on CDGC's forum. I'm sure somebody there has an idea what the plans are.

It's still about the best as it's set up now, but there's no butt kicking like the full web layout, IMO. I find it harder than Nevin, though at my skill level I should probably never set foot on either of the "Four Horsemen of the Apocolypse:" Nevin, Renny, Elong (Angry Beev,) Web.


Thanks again.

Why don't you throw forehands more often? You have a ~400ft forehand on a rope, but don't seem to use it as much as Ricky and other top pros do. If you have a high enough ceiling, I assume you prefer and can control the tail end of your backhand better.
