Please learn what these words mean before you start throwing them around and confusing the younger drummers on this site.

Moeller technique, French GRIP (not technique) and finger control are three different things entirely.

Moeller is a wrist whip (a method for accenting and getting more than one stroke out of each wrist motion), French grip is a thumbs up grip matched style, and finger control is a method of controlling the sticks at high tempos using fingers alone.
Either you have a purpose behind your expression... or you don't.
