I am wondering what the best way is to grip the disc to maximize distance and accuracy?

This link is a great resource for types of grip on a disc!

Very detailed, was about to post it but you beat me to it!
i use that grip in the wind. It really helps me keeps the nose down
Never index finger on rim. IMHO it takes distance away and serves no purpose.
Four fingers under the rim , thumb on top.
I do the power grip but only 3 fingers... i cant manage to get the pinky down. it gets on the way for me. maybe because I have big hands? IDK 4 fingers works for me, I've been able to drive 450+ft
I feel the same way, i watch my brother do this all the time and he never really gets distance. I know a big part of that is run-up and lack of technique elsewhere, but most guys should be able to strong arm a disc to nearly 300', he can get about 180', more on a fluke.
So i only use my middle finger on the inside of the rrim. I get great results and throw 350+ constantly. Do you think that if i switch grips i can get more distance or should i stick with what works? I tried to rip with my index and middle finger but i keep releasing it late and throwing it way right with out much extra distance (i did this and put my week old pro wraith in the middle of a pond)
