I would like a hot sauna and a hole in the ice, NOW! :)

Oh my, somebody is getting killed in my backyard!

PM?

Maybe we should start another tread in "Off-Topic, Miscellaneous, etc." ?


See guys? It's not only the Finns swimming in ice cold water :-)

I've heard Birdy before and didn't like it. The director of the video Aki Taanila was a teacher at the Finnish Academy of Fine Arts when I worked there. That video won the best video award somewhere. Best European video of the year at MTV?

OK I'm still having problems with this grip. I've been trying it in the field, and while I like the results, I'm pretty sure I'm still doing it wrong. I still have have trouble getting my pinky under the rim. I thought I had figured it out based on Blake's feedback to my last photos (Thanks!), but now that I look at the new photos I think my wrist is even more clockwise. When I rotate my wrist back to horizontal the only way I can get the disc level is to drop it back down into the seam. I've been a mechanic for a number of years so my hands lean more toward thick than flexible, but surely it shouldn't be this difficult. Trying to get my fingers up farther up into the rim is difficult enough that I can feel weird pulling all the way up my forearm and my hand starts to cramp. Examples of bad form below. Feedback/mockery encouraged.

dogma:

the palm of your hand is now angled towards about 2 o'clock. you want the palm to be parallel to 12 o'clock.

you'll have to dig the disc into the base of the thumb. your grip right now will either be nose up or have massive OAT.

Hrmm. I wonder if that is why I have been cranking a few and other times I am turning them over and same with nose up. I have to start paying better attention to my grip until the disc fits into there how it is supposed to. I love it when people ask questions and it relates exactly to you but you didn't know you were doing it wrong.

I usually max out at about 370 ft. with the occasional drive that I can push to the 380's.

While playing today, I tried to throw my ESP Surges with beato's grip and I got amazing results.

After we were done measuring, I was left with my longest drive ever at 451 ft. :shock:

I'll definitely be doing some testing with this grip. :)

I've been having good results with above the seam grip as well. It felt really awkward at first but I've been sticking with standing throws using this grip and trying to feel the rip. Last time I played my home course I threw a couple drives standing longer than I normally throw them with an x-step.

This grip mod is definitely helping me with my long standing problem of throwing nose-up.

This grip is helping me throw higher while keeping the nose down angle which has given me a huge increase of distance. I am loving how I am playing right now. When I played today I birdied 7 of the 10 holes (the other 8 are pulled right now) and got a par on the other 3. Everything seems to be going good right now. I threw a 169 pink pro destroyer at least 415 tonight to. Not bad for a guy who was having major form issues a week ago and was only getting 330 feet of D on anything.

it's absolutely insane what that teeny adjustment can do in return on investment :)
