Can you elaborate on this? That is, should the rear joint of the index finger be on top of the disc plate? If that's the case I will mightily struggle with this just based on hand size.
I'm wondering if some of my field results are a consequence of just this, that is, with the grip adjustments I've made these past few weeks, I've notice noticable distance improvement with my mids - my buzzz and roc3 are flying out to 250 now, I even sent a buzzz 275 yesterday but my drivers are still stuck in that 260-280 range with the rare occasion that one hits 300-315. (interestingly enough, still the disc that I get the most distance with is the blizzard katana shown in the video, however I just throw it in practice so I don't have to chase down discs as often - but when that disc flys well, I get a really nice S-curve with consistantly the most distance) Pretty much all of my drivers (valk, beast, wraith, teebird, leapord) all do just about the same thing distancewise with occasionally the wraith stretching out a little further.
I only started working on getting above the crease yesterday (as that is when I found the thread and pics from beato) and as it was just about to get dark, I oly got about 25 throws in. What I did notice was considerably more height out of my valks and more of an "s-curve" flight. Does this indicate anything related to the grip or was it coincidence?
Also saw the video on where Climo is explaining his grip to someone at a clinic, I think I may try something like - from sitting at home, it feels a little like I can get thr thumb more forward with his grip. I asked my wife to try and rip the disc out of my hand last night and she couldn't come close with both hands when using his grip...
So how do you combat the short fingers?? Am I destined to a career of throwing leapords and mids?? Guess it's time to get really good at putting
