Tested this out today.
RESULTS: A minor adjustment with my thumb position changed made quite a bit of difference. I had an instant jump in distance with mids and drivers. I was averaging an extra 40ft with mids and drivers. After every throw i could only manage to laugh because the distance was so explosive and easy to attain.
THOUGHTS: I haven't found a comfortable or consistent thumb position. The new positioning has messed with my timing a little, but with a few more sessions it'll be fixed. I'm excited to find my "normal" rhythm with this new grip.
SUMMARY: I'm sure there are other things wrong with my technique, but this little trick seems to have cured the "no pivot" issue i was experiencing with flat/hyzer releases, and it has MASSIVE potential for bigger increases in distance. I wasn't able to hit the discs cleanly and my timing was slightly off, but this is very exciting. I always thought my grip was pretty solid, but the smallest change (a 1/4" or less) has allowed me to fully pivot the disc in any position.
THANK YOU for the tip JR! I owe you big time.
its a game of mistakes. whoever can make the least amount of mistakes wins.
