Default Grip

So, noticed that I grip straight into the rim normally. But, I have seen that in some videos on grip, they should be slanted. Attached pics. Which is more correct?

No such thing as a truly "correct" power grip with so many different versions. Biggest things are to not pull into palm and have a single rip point off the thumb leverage on the rim/flight plate seam. Off thumb placement and wrist/ disc orientation can cause nose up. No way to tell from your picture though.

Hold your arm out straight with the wrist in the handshake/throwing position or how you would normally orient it. Take a picture from the side, directly from the side, so we can see the disc angle relative to your forearm. Try to get the whole disc and forearm up to elbow in the picture.

That looks pretty good to me...at worst nose neutral but definitely not nose up. I think Will Schusterick grips the disc lower in his hand in a similar way.

1st two pics are my normal grip, in nose down and neutral position. Last pic is the slanted grip. feels different in the hand, discs shifts and it feels a little easier to keep it nose down. but, havent had a chance to try to throw with it. So, overall, grip looks fine?

I do like the last picture the most, I thought it was just a camera angle thing. But I can see it's a little higher in the forearm/palm. As long as you don't see the flight plate during flight and your understable discs can hold a turnover then it's probably fine/nose down enough.

Everyone's hand size is different so the alignment is most important I think. One thing to maybe try is to hook the index finger rather than pull against the inner rim with it. See how in this picture the index finger is hooked under the rim at the last joint, with the tip of the finger against the flight plate rather than pulling against the inner rim. Of course the rest of the grip is not a power grip so ignore that.

Try Robbie's 2 finger grip to get the feeling of a proper index finger hook. Then modify your other fingers onto the disc if necessary keeping the same index position. That helped me get to MJ's fan grip and really all other grips are based around the 2 finger index position.
