I think Gannon and Eagle also have longgg fingies. Maybe try to get a glimpse of their grips on footage when there's a good view.Been playing for 3 years and still haven't found a grip, that doesn't feel like shit in the hand. I've got them long skinny piano type of fingers and nothing really feels comfortable.
Feel free to throw suggestions my way
My hands are bigger than average and I power grip everything except for putting obviously. For deep molds (like an Aviar) I have slightly different pressure on the grip and have it a little bit looser as Aviars will get some OAT when gripping them too tightly on a throw and with the looser grip they release slightly earlier which causes me to modify my stance a bit. I also throw my approach shots from a slightly more open stand still position. I guess if one takes a different stance when approaching grip changes also make sense as they affect where and when the disc gets released.
For those who modify their grips, do you use it with your standard standstill stance or do you modify the stance with the grip?
This makes a lot of sense. When I was working on my putting form, I would jump putt from ~75-100ft to get a better idea of what was happening and then dial it back from there. I think emphasizing all aspects—including wrist/hand movement and grip—from a greater distance makes it much easier to feel what is happening when you're in the circle.The fan grip I use for all shots inside, say 150ft, is the same grip I use to putt with. So I use the same grip for everything inside 150ft, and the same grip for all shots outside that (power).
I didn't start doing this with the fan grip until maybe 5 or so years ago. I have a suspicion that it has strengthened the pop and power in my putt, because I have been practicing that fan grip approach shots a lot, and strengthening that grip from throwing has also strengthened my putting.
Food for thought...
For me: it's essentially the same modified power grip regardless of type of disc, or whether or not the throw is from standstill or drives. Also doesn't change for upshots or longer throws.For those who modify their grips, do you use it with your standard standstill stance or do you modify the stance with the grip?
I do. I tend to either a) have both feet parallel to each other for shorter throws, similar to what Seppo Paju taught, and b) the more staggered stance for longer throws and standstill drives. The lead foot is typically at a 90 degree angle, relative to the direction of the throw, with the rear foot somewhat parallel in the straddle stance, and a little more pointed back for the staggered stance.Do you also change your stance for upshots?
