I use the same grip for just about everything until I get into the range where I have to start taking something off to keep from overshooting. Approaches, etc. I am trained in the arts of the 3 finger school of Shaolin. No pinky touching the disc except on fan grips.KRooster wrote:Does anyone use the unmodified power grip when driving mids/putters?
I went through a period where I was having this wrist roll problem frequently in order to try and achieve more nose down. As you allude to, wrist orientation is somewhat related to nose angle. It took lots of practice in order to be able to get enough nose down without supination. I wonder if this is a common developmental problem in the learning process?Bradley Walker wrote:Wrist rolling that causes the disc to turn over is the reult of the forearm rotating clockwise through the hit. Like turning door knob clockwise. This also called "supination". The palm goes from facing down (typical disc grip) to facing up by rotating the forearm.
To eliminate rolling, stop supinating. Keep the throwing palm facing down through the entire shot (or thumb up). This will most likely result in a noticable heyser. I think it helps to think about keeping the thumb pointing to the sky (or on "top" of the disc plate) through the entire shot.

Well I tried the fork grip, or at least the closest I could get to it, and BAM, the flutter disappeared instantly! So, I guess my problem was grip lock, not wrist roll. Argh so confusing... well at least I solved the problem. Anyone having problems with flutter I think should at least try the fork grip on the off chance that the problem is not wrist roll... as if a newbie like me is in any position to give advice
Only thing that sucks is I was looking forward to getting rid of my wrist roll and going back to my drivers and seeing improvement.... now I have no idea what to do to improve my drives. Seems like I'm stuck at 300' or slightly more for most of my drives. I guess that's probably not bad considering I started a couple months ago.
