I had some D before this (PDs ~380, faster stuff +400). I was holding back a little and started to think about my grip (so weak) and figured out what I did wrong.

This is what my grip looks like now. I let my wrist curl a little from the added pressure from pinky and ring finger. Middle and index finger will compensate automatically: stronger grip and much better feel.
Now, the rip feels little violent (not dangerous of course, but I have to pull back really hard) and I've read somewhere Finnish big arm telling how he can't drive more than ~5 (or so) times in row with full power. This is how I feel as well :confusedface:. Should it feel like this? Also, everything flies faster and more stable. I could not flip PD up. It just hyzered all the way out to 350 on very low line. Is this correct or am I rolling under? Something else? Will be testing more when I have more time.
FH. My form is effortless (little reach back and high spin ratio vs speed) and I max beat PDs right at 350 (hyzer flipped, frozen rope.I get little more D with bigger lines, but lose accuracy). I can't throw faster stuff because they are too fast for me. Now, to get that extra 30-40ft I would need to grip harder and create more arm speed (bigger reach back and more hips/shoulder turn) and I don't know if it's worth it. Accuracy is so crazy with this form and I'm scared of losing it, if I start to work with thing said earlier. What do you think? Worth it or not?
Approaching. I see many advanced players snapping the hell out of a disc on distances were you could take your index finger off and lighten up fan grip (small reach back, facing the target and it still snaps off). They seem to miss many easy shots because of this and I don't get it. Also, many of them are using very stable plastic. Is there something that I don't see? Do they wanna snap it like MF all the time? Seems really crazy to me.
