Also my favorite video of Dunipace is him casually hitting two standstill 50' putts in a row. Never knew he had that level of skill.
Give yourself a fan grip then try Eagle's thumb in middle of disc. You'll feel massive leverage but I think the tricky party is keeping it nose down. Bigger hands probably help too.

SW22 is probably going to chime in soon and suggest robbies two finger grip which never really clicked on me.

Mainly we grip things with our fingers clamping against our thumb muscle and thats how I am trying to grip the disc atleast in the winter. Pretty much every single "finger-grip" kills my fingers during the cold seasons.
I think the the right question to ask would be what we are trying to achive with the grip, what is the right task? I dont have an answer to that. That would be an intresting topic to discuss.
Do you mean like fingers clamping against the big thumb muscle? Like the pad? If so, my whole life is a lie. I'm mainly gripping with more of the thumbprint and index finger under the rim. The disc is still contacting my palm, but I'm not really applying pressure with it. I'm going to have to try this out. I know the "rip point" will still be my thumbprint and index finger.

I have pretty small hands, I think my rip point is more my 1st index joint on the rim and the tip of my thumb slightly lifted up, so its the bony part at the joint. Also when the thumb is slightly lifted you should see your thumb muscle engaged. The grip itself feels very relaxed and I belive its just because most of it comes from the thumb muscle. Like if I were to use the disc as a hand fan it is definently pinky,ring,middle and meat of the thumb that is controlling the movement.

Hope that makes some sense.
