Movable wrist anchor issues

Hello all - I raised this topic a while ago - my playing has got much better since then, but I was hoping you could help me here. I’m having issues going from the top to the bottom string, especially when switching from rhythm to lead. The problem for me is this: When I’m playing metal rhythm parts on the E string, the bridge becomes an unreliable place for the hand to anchor, and I sort of have this strange blend between leaning on the body, the bridge, and adding a bit of a pinky anchor. Switching from this to palm anchoring on the bridge seamlessly feels very difficult. I think Martin Miller and Andy Wood manage this somehow, but I can’t seem to make it feel smooth.
