Rollin Roadrunners

Give it up.

I've been learning rollers, right hand backhand.

I'm not doing so bad, I am rolling them farther than I can throw Blizzards and shaping the rolls to turn like I want. That's what the shot does when you throw it.

I'm throwing backhand. If I am lining up with the tee pad, I'm back in the right side, I'm standing in the back corner and I advance on a line that angles left of target to the left corner of the tee pad and I throw across my chest with a pretty good angle like 60 degree release and out with the disc going to the right and straight out about 75 - 100' with the disc biting in and standing up rolling. It keeps rolling and standing up toward the left of the basket then stands up straight and starts to curve in a big right hand arch and slows down rolling and continues to circle, falling over on its flight plate, the underbelly up. Yeah.

The Star Innova Roadrunner and good rolling weather (dead compact short grass with hard earth below) are awesome. Someone here recognizes this disc, this technique and are gettin her done.

I am throwing (rolling) this thing farther than my throws. If I get good at this, I'm going to start competing because I might actually be competitive.

On grass courses.

Old man throwing but I use those Blizzards and light drivers so I don't stink anymore.

Dude, nice to have a great roller in your bag. It's happening for me. I'm doin it and the Roadrunner is a bad azz disc. Effin great roller disc.

You?

Try to find someone that does it and watch them. The videos of it are good and all but nothing like someone right there doing it in front of you. It is an amazing shot, it is disc golf, not a poor form thing. You throw the disc, it rolls and for some reason, the shot is shapable by the way you throw it. It rolls like it is flying, that's kind of how I look at it.

There is nothing funky about the Roadrunner, it is a good rolling disc, it works.

I've seen some guys roll their own cigarettes too.

Anyone roll a Roadrunner?

I roll sidewinders, virtually the same disc. You should be able to roll around 20% further than your air shots.

i roll a roadrunner for longer rollers over 350 or 400

That seems like a good calculation. The percentage can be higher if there is no approach from above. You know this stuff...

I have not forehand rolled the Roadrunner.

Monarch is second choice, Sidewinder is third but either or will do it.

This is a workable disc, I'll throw it right backhand too.

The longest air shot recorded was a little over 800'. The longest roller was over 2400'.

Nuff' said.

wasn't the 800'+ shot with a valkyrie? do you know what disc was used for the 2400'+ roller?
