Different technique for distance drivers?

Quick background info, a few months ago I "disced down" and started learning to throw my putters and mids with good form and get decent distance on them without turning them over. Now I have worked my way back up and am just starting to play around with some faster drivers now that I can throw my eagle in the 325 range reliably...

The other day I was playing some very long holes and was throwing my tern quite far (for me anyways) maxing out around 410. I noticed however that when I was going for max d I seemed to naturally snap my wrist a literally differently at the hit point. I guess to get the disc to fly a little straighter before fading out.

Now for the question, is there anything wrong with throwing like that for distance? Or is that a step back towards my old form when it was so oat-y I couldn't throw my rocs without immediately turning and burning them.

What happens when you use your distance driver technique with putters, mids and fairway drivers?

It'll flip them over, is my guess, from my own personal experience. The extra snap is hidden from the higher speed drivers.

That could be OAT and if so then yes it is a step back
