The looser the wrist the less arm speed and more importantly acceleration you need. It's stupendous how much more acceleration and speed there needs to be in the throw for the slightest increase in muscle tension.
I wouldn't wonder if everyone is able to lock up their wrist bad enough by tensioning their forearm too much. Creating too high acceleration demands. One has to be very lopsidedly full of quick cells and without power in the muscles used to squeeze the disc in the hand and fingers.
I seriously implore everyone to try to start throwing with as little muscle tension in the upper arm you can with only enough tension in the forearm, hand and fingers to keep the disc in the correct orientation. You wouldn't believe without witnessing it first hand how much _faster_ your arm moves with loose muscles vs trying to huck far by consciously guiding your muscles. Whether you realize it or not I believe that's the case when one tries to throw hard.
One does need to pinch the index finger and thumb hard in the end and try to stop the wrist from moving either straight handshaking position or 10-15 degrees opened to the right for hyper spin. Then there's a lot of muscle tension in the forearm, fingers and hand. But by that time your arm is moving really fast -faster than usual I'd say and there muscling helps to keep the acceleration going. Where's that you might ask. Not sure but around when the elbow is straight and the wrist is beginning it's opening. Maybe a bit earlier if the disc starts to slip early unless that can be countered by a little more initial grip strength.
People are different so everyone needs to find their own optimal grip strength, muscle tension, timing of tensioning grip and the onset of starting to really use muscle power for acceleration after the hit.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.
