The reason is increased spin. You should be getting more spin on your disc to compensate for any loss of raw power. It's a trade-off. Work on increasing snap and spin. Spin is what keeps a disc in the air, not power or speed.
Also, a 2 finger grip tends to result in an earlier release, mainly due to the disc's higher orientation in the hand(not as far down inside the palm). So you need to compensate for that too....meaning timing.
You still should be getting turn with a champ Tern, especially with a "hard flat" throw.
You're probably not going to like how your PD's fly now if the Tern is suddenly flying noticeably more stable for you.

4 to 3, very little changed, other than the pinky no longer creating drag on the release. But when I first tried the 2 finger, spin increased bigtime, which was causing discs/drives I was throwing to act more understable, not the opposite. Hyzer-flip is my default driving method.
It seems we're on the same page re the 2 finger power grip, so disregard some of those comments in my previous post. And good luck!

There sure is potential in a two finger grip and i try to use it as often as possible to reduce the rate at which i fatigue. Because i do not need to rip as hard as is needed with a four fingered grip. When the weather allows it.
BentElbow11 wrote:Control and accuracy increased for me with the 2 finger, no doubt. Spinning the disc vs hurtling it through the air.
The distance drop-off for me on max D drives was negligible, I might have lost 20-30 ft, and it may not even be related to the switch.
UncleBrother: Interesting how you and I can talk about the same stuff, same discs, same threads, and not be arguing at all. If we happen to disagree, we ask more questions, work out the info...productive, the way it should be.

But, snap and spin decreased, had to adjust timing again so everything wasn't going to the right, lost some control regardless, and didn't get any distance back. I never liked the 4 finger, much less flexibility in the wrist and I feel the pinky adds nothing but drag.
