JR wrote:If it is tennis elbow using a brace under the elbow may help. The forearm muscles shake a lot in the throw so the brace helps in reducing that. The harder you throw the more the muscles and tendons shake from the tendon bounce and the muscles and tendons wagging back and forth in the follow through. Avery uses a .cloth to put pressure in the hardest hit area. His cloth seems to be very flimsy vs a proper brace. Not knowing what is wrong and how severe it is a compression cloth may work if it's not severe.

CatPredator wrote:I switched up my grip a bit, mostly based on observations of Nikko's and Jussi's throws. In the past, I was using an above the seam grip with almost all the pressure generated by the pinch between index and thumb. I'd always been a little unhappy with my grip but wasn't sure how to fix it.
I've gone to an in the seam grip with more pressure pushing into my palm by my middle and ring finger. I use the Bonapane grip to get the disc situated in the seam and nose down, then do the Jussi/Nikko style "trigger grip" type thing where I slide my index finger underneath and lock it into the rim to use it as the rip point before I go into my reach back. It's helped a lot with wrist tension/extension, grip pressure, and nose angle control. Been smashing the shit out of my drives but I can't grip really wide winged discs very well with this method.
