Teebirds and eagles fly great at that weight. Teebirds are straighter, but a little tougher to shape a bunch of different lines with, eagles are fantastic at shaping all kinds of different lines,...

A speed stable disc is one that acts overstable at low power but has high speed turn when thrown faster. A truly overstable disc is overstable across power levels. Take a flat firebird and a...

For players who throw <350' they are nice overstable predictable drivers that have no turn. If you get them up to speed though (watch someone like Avery throw a destroyer) they have a nice turn, then...

It's longer than that, the site has it listed at 1503' and that seemed about right when I played it. I missed a long putt for 4 after a couple great downhill drives and a decent third shot.

I lose a lot of PDs, most of my shots are with wizards and rocs, and I occasionally throw distance drivers, but it seems that a lot of my risky shots and longer shots in the woods are with a PD and...

Used discs are a great idea in general, lots of brand new discs fly more overstable than the actual flight numbers, and once a disc is broken in a little it stays in that state for a long time...

My wife and I have been carrying our simians for a few years now, I would highly recommend them. They're extremely durable, have tons of room for whatever you want to carry and the built in seat is...

If you have a lighter dx shark around, it would be a perfect choice. The panther is a little heavy, if it's broken in pretty well it will be fine but a new champ panther might be a little too...

This is why I'm a big fan of 50/50 pots at charity events. Several I've played at had both a 50/50 ace pot and a 50/50 CTP on a specific hole. Often one is $3 and the other is $2 so you can just toss...

True story, I had a roller that looked like it was going to be parked, it curled at the end like I was expecting, caught the wind, and rolled 200' right of the pin and 300' back toward the tee. :wall:

Good point Steve, sometimes erosion control is more important than having exactly flat runup areas around a tee. Having that hillside wash down onto the tee pad every time it rains would really suck,...

I've seen it done well to put other visible baskets on an overhead view as well in cases like that, with the other baskets numbered and the basket for the current hole highlighted. YMMV, I'm just...

I'm not a huge fan of POV type hole pictures on tee signs. The overhead view is a lot more useful IMO when playing a hole the first time, and is easier to update if pin placements are added or...

I think there are valid scenarios for flaring the pad at the front or back depending on the layout of the hole. If there is a gap right off the pad but there are possibilities to go right or left...

An alternative I've seen work well is painted lines on flat sections of cart paths. It's a perfectly good surface for us and keeps a teeing area from getting worn down and rutted out.

Some of it also depends on your body shape as well. A large stomach and/or chest can change where the optimal pull line is for a specific person.

Yeah but it's also a big difference when it's calm in the morning and windy in the afternoon (for example) and the people with the earlier tee times get a huge advantage because of that. I'd argue...
