Avery Jenkins and Ricky both pre wrap. There's a distance clinic at Gentlemen's that has an awesome vid of Will S. He has a style similar to Eagle. As they step out of the X, they push the disc back. The disc then moves into the loaded position. First, you can see directly that Will wraps. Not a lot, 15 to 20 degrees off 180. Second, you can see the difference in speed and effort between the load and the unload. The video is on the 2017 GCC Twitter.
I understand what you are saying. I am always very hesitant to tell people to do anything with their wrist other than control nose angle because a lot of people come into disc golf trying to "fling" the disc with their wrist like a beach frisbee. The main thing I want to emphasize is that for people who aren't hitting 400-450 actively using the wrist is NOT what you are missing.
