I've been having fantastic results by using what I've learned in the grip article...when I throw a driver. However, when I throw a higher profile disc (most putters, some midranges like the Millennium Aurora or Quantium MS) I have trouble getting a good release with a power grip (I use "Ver. 1" from the grip article for a visual reference). I tend to get a lot of flutter, not a lot of distance and frequently turn over the discs when I use a power grip.
When I drive with my putters I use sort of a version of a fan/control grip where I fan out my middle, ring and pinky fingers underneath the disc and hook my outermost joint of my index finger under the rim and use that as my rip point. That seems to work well and I'm able to get accurate drives between 200'-220' or so.
However, with my Aurora MS I'm not able to generate mid-range type distances with that grip and would like to be able to do that. I'm able to get rid of some of the flutter with a power grip, but when I do that I don't get a very good rip and end up shorter than my putters. Does anyone have any advice for modification to my grip for higher profile discs that may help?
If anyone's interested, the insparation for getting a disc like the Aurora MS came from two places. The first is hole 5 on the course at Edina, MN. It's about a 280' hole with the pin at about the same level as the tee, but on a hill that leads to the parking lot behind it (20'-30'), to a road and lake on the left side and to some big pine trees on the right side. Too much power and you're in the parking lot explaining how you dented a car; too far to the left and you're swimming for your disc, too much to the right and you're throwing around giant trees. There's also a tree 20' in front of the tee that blocks about any sort of hyzer line. If I use a midrange with any decent fade, I have to either go for a short s-curve, which I find wildly inaccurate, a sidearm throw, which unless it's straight will end up in a pine tree or throw a putter and come up short. I see this distance as being a hole in my game. The other inspration came from finding a misstamped Aurora MS and a misstamped QMS on sale.
