Inverted bonapane does not hurt. I definitely agree that the traditional grip hurts. I bust out the traditional grip for shorter grenades or grenades that need to be as vertical as possible through their flight. Inverted bonapane results in a more right pushing finish after the apex, and has more distance potential. It can also mimick a traditional grenade flight more if you throw with a less steep initial hyzer.

My longest throw with a Stego is a FH grenade that went 240'. For some reason Stegos go further upside down. What is this bonapane grip y'all are talking about?

Bonapane grip is pictured in here - https://www.dgcoursereview.com/dgr/r...html#griptypes

I just can't trust a full throw to it for fear of my fingers being sliced off. that grip scares me.

What's the FH grenade grip you are talking about? My brain hurts trying to invert a BH one...

I just flipped the disc upside down and threw it FH. It hurt for sure, but mostly on my thumb. Was very interesting for sure.

I throw grenades as rescue shots. Maybe you had some early release and now your short left of the basket and within 100ft but there are a lot of trees. Lots of small gaps to throw through so i break out a grenade because its easier to throw through those small gaps <24" with the disc vertical as opposed to flying horizontally. The release point is so much smaller if you try to throw a 11" wide disc through a 24" gap as opposed to putting a 2" wide disc (because it's flying vertically) through that 24' gap.

Funny, my goto is understable (beat Cobra the most). I'll use anything from a Berg to a Surge and everything in between but can't go faster...don't have the biggest hands and a Cannon feels goofy to me.

For the grenade I use something similar to the ver 2 bonapane grip, with the thumb over the top of the finger. But my thumb comes all the way over and locks, it doesn't just sit on top like that.

That looked like throwing a screwball but with a disc...no thanks haha

I can just throw a FH flex shot for that shape, and way easier.
