Went out to a footbal field to work on D, changed my grip from a fan grip to a 3 finger power grip. Added about 30 feet to my drive!!! Yea what was I thinking not doing this earlier in my disc golf life lol.

there is so much more snap from a power grip. and once you get it down, you will be just as accurate
Yea my accuracy was what shocked me the most, out side of a grip lock once in awhile I was landing in line with my target

I also wish I had researched grip techniques back in my younger days. Only since 2009 have I been using the power grip and the X-step. I had a #2 Flyer disc over 15 years ago and I couldn't understand why it had molded ridges on the inside lip. I thought is was for aerodynamics, now I know it was for improved grip lol.


Grip is the most important factor to my game. the reason being purely based on the fact that i get more rotations from the disc with the grip I use. I put the tips of my first 3 fingers on the bottom edge of the brim. not the flat perpendicular angle that most people use. It is more for speed ranges between 7-12 because those are the discs that benifit the most from excessive spin rotations. spin also adds to the glide you will experience with each disc you throw


15 years ago, was that the stealth back then. I know they had the grooves. Havn't thrown lightning other then the plane ones and the rubber putters.
