I can't really find a comfortable grip so the disc is parallel to the forearm or down. I often feel the disc slipping out. Not sure if its just crappy grip strength or how I'm gripping.
Sounds like a problem with how your discs are situated in your hand and not necessarily grip strength. The flip back drill from the secret technique thread is useful in trying to find a comfortable grip that facilitates disc pivot/nose down during wrist extension.

I have no idea about the frequency of subconscious letting go to protect the body, but it happens to me. Maybe to you too. I'm not sure if even letting the tendons heal for a minimum of 6 months would help in overcoming the subconscious once the protection mode is triggered. Maybe you can get over that by healing properly. For me it ain't gonna happen so you get to be the DGR guinea pig for that

JR wrote:Dude you thrust more than a porn star! You thrust so hard with the left leg you always fly up like in a start in swimming The squat part means bent knees and that is mandatory for health and good for twisting the legs to the right and pushing _on a level plane_ parallel to the ground. Not jumping up to grab the disc you threw on a high max D line. Golfers need to follow through high so they need the thrust up. Our flat throw arm swing is on a different plane so the motions need to all be adjusted accordingly to fire everything into the same direction. Golfers go back up then squatting down then thrusting up and following through high. We do everything rotationally keeping the disc at a constant height from the ground. So almost everything in our throw has all the body parts maintaining the same height. Almost no up and down movements. Steps and their momentum being the most noticeable exception to that rule. In a flat low line drive.
JR wrote:Squat and thrust is great for spike hyzers and porn star thrust is tremendous for putting, not for driving. It's all about having every muscle moving the body in the direction of throw thus plane matching for every body movement. porn star thrusting for real back to front with bent waist at the reach back and straight waist upright posture at the hit is a legitimate way to improve putting. So i was only half kidding, but it is bad for drives unless spikes to push forward and up.
