It has to do with tweaks on how to get distance and has a pro fix three peoples forms and has them throwing farther right away. Just thought I'd let anybody who didn't know know.

Thanks for keeping these coming Mark!!!!

sweet video.. im going to have to watch it again and again to get it in my head.
Cool video..
Last video I watched gave me about 50 feet. And in this one I found a little something else i was doing wrong with my grip, just slightly and a small change to my throw. Great vids Discraft keep them coming.
The one thing I don't like about it is the part about the grip. Climo shows a grip in one of his videos here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vAV8kKURKaw that says to do the opposite of how the discraft guy said to do it and when I started using Climos grip I automatically got A LOT more distance and a snap that was actually audible. But I guess everyone has a differen't grip. Oh, and Climo also says that he cocks his wrist all the way back on max distance drives and discraft guy says not to do that but to barely cock it at all.
Hmm I tried the grip he shows in that video and lost control and distance immediately. Of course, different strokes for different folks.

One thing I've noticed he says is that it's like your last 3 fingers are "one big finger". Personally, I've got 5 fingers total not 3 and think it feels the most natural to have all of them in contact with the rim. Plus it helps to have all that contact when you are creating snap.
it might just be me... but ,,, Climo looks like he's holding a buzzzz in the video..
Yea he is. I think hes allowed to hold them lol just not play with them in sanctioned tournaments. I'm pretty sure it was someones disc he was using for an example.
Here's another great video on grips. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=28ABf6csQpM I think the grip that Climo advises in the vid you posted was one that he uses on mids and putters. I'm pretty sure he still uses a power grip with drivers...that being, all four pads of the fingers on the underside of the rim in some manner. The midrange grip that Climo and Feldberg use is more of a fork grip for control (but also good distance). They aren't quite the same, but you have to throw what's more comfortable for you.
Nope, The champ uses the same grip for every throw even putting and only alters how much he cocks his wrist varying from a fully cocked on max d drives down to not cocked at all on puts but its all the same grip. You can get all that info on his website but like I said its different for everyone and that grip works best for me. I use the modified fan grip for mids like in the feldberg video and that's just a modified version of the fork grip that I and Climo use. I know feldgerg says he does it another way but I think climo knows better than feldberg how he himself grips.
I might try his grip driving a putter or midrange, but I can't imagine using it on a driver.
nice one, thanks!
I stand corrected. Thank you. I use Climo's fork-grip for mids and putters...I used to use it for drivers too, but I couldn't use it on the new big rim drivers, my hands were just too small. I had almost given up on them until I tried a power grip on them and then I could throw them.
