There are different grips that have both pads on the wall. My grip is a stack with my middle finger on the wall and my index backing my middle finger. The thumb pad goes where it can depending on the relative length, I suppose. My thumb is relatively short compared to my fingers and my thumb pad tries to oppose the middle and index pads, but comes up slightly short. It is just short of being aligned with the side of the index pad. As with a backhand, the thumb controls the escape of, (or traps) the rim with as little or as much force needed for the shot. The fingers never let the disc go. The thumb controls when the disc rim may escape.
