the wrist is definitely involved but it's more of a springy natural action than a conscious fling. i've been trying to incorporate this sort of wrist movement lately and it's helped with the timing of the finger spring and palm push. the timing tends to get screwy if i try to extend the wrist too consciously. but power suffers if i don't think about it a little bit at least.

oh, absolutely. and that's just this one technique. i've been rereading all blake's putting stuff lately and this detail is something that i hadn't noticed before. i think it explains why some guys who say "no wrist" are actually using their wrist a little.
of course the important aspect of the wrist action is what position it puts your hand in at release. since the "push" putt depends on a well-placed palm nudge, whatever wrist action you use has to position the disc in front of the palm at the right moment.
