Three finger power grip for everything but putting. For putting I put my index finger along the outside rim of the disc and three fingers under.

Same as Neophyte, only I'll sometimes use a fan grip for mids that have a deep, squarish rim, since they tend to hang on my fingers and grip-lock if I try to throw them with a power grip. This is especially true with my Cro, Coyote, and Aviar putter.

Just trying to see if it's normal to switch up your grip for different types of throws and distances.

Thats exactly how I do it

I use a fork type grip for drives and a fan style grip for approaches. Putting wise I use a fan grip but it is a little bit different than the fan grip I use on approaches. Its more loose and the points of pressure are more focused on the flight plate as opposed to near the rim.

I use both the 3 and 4 finger power grip for drives. Mid range shots, approaches, and putting all get the fan treatment.

Three finger grip for everything, even short upshots. So long as you aren't gripping so hard that when your hand "turns the corner" the disc won't eject, it'll come out on the proper angle.

I've messed around with the fan grip for shorter upshots, but I'm more comfortable keeping the same grip for everything.

(I searched for "how many grips" and got only this thread, so I'm bumping a fairly old one. It has a poll and everything! )

4 finger power grip for drivers and mid-ranges.
2 finger (pinky and index) with other 2 fanned out for putter throws and putts.

(and 3 finger for max d, competition style distance lines, but I don't count that)
