I'm no expert, but the way I think of it is just to keep the disc in line with my forearm. I do not alter my grip angle at all to do hyzer/anhyzer, that is 100% controlled by my posture. Bend over...

I do get what you are saying but...

There is just a focus shift you need to make. I wouldn't think about it as "plant then swing" as if it is a timing thing. You literally cannot swing correctly without planting first and 'crushing...
