I use a fan grip for all putter drives and approaches 250 and over, then a control short grip and then my putting grip which is almost the same as the control grip. Once I stopped trying to throw putters power grip my game improved so much and I eliminated 99% of my OAT.

Exactly! With proper form and technique a putter will do exactly what you "make it" do. The first time I saw Sam Ferrans play he was launching aviars 400+ feet, something I wanted to learn to do so I did. It made many holes much easier because I could throw a slow disc that didnt move around much in the air just as far as guys were throwing their mids and distance drivers. The release is so important.

Power grip on drives, fan(my take anyway) grip on short approaches. Nothing has improved my form more than learning to drive my putters with a power grip. It's also a blast. I don't even take drivers with me to the practice field anymore.... Just my Wizards, and a Rhino.

My practice is on my local pitch and putt with a bag of putters. Get yourself a Polecat, Sonic, or Rattler. As much as I love throwing Wizards and Rhynos, it's a blast watching a disc heading 200' that you know you can outrun.
