I prefer it to be more flat. I've found that for me, if I use more of a fist type grip, there is more tension in my release hand and arm than there should be and it makes it hard to get the shot to go off.
I second Mike. A fist creates too much unecessary tension in your hand IMO. Really no way to "fist" without using the small muscles of the hand, which is difficult to repeat and leads to inconsistency. I always find the more smalll muscles I can eliminate . . . .the better.
