There are yellow merging lights some places. No light for Ricky, yellow for the semi.

There are a bunch of intersections with no stops, and a yield somewhere. So no, the crossing street doesn't...

Overstable discs won't flip up from hyzer. They can be thrown in various ways effectively. They're very consistent flyers. They excel at hyzers (especially spike hyzers), although they don't get the...

"Smash Factor" is a lot better term than "Snap", but it's

Disc Speed/Arm Speed=Snap


Work on leveraging the far edge of the disc.

Pretty much, everything below 250' is going to be a putter. 250'-350' is going to be a mid, 350'-420' is a slow driver, and everything over is a fast driver.

On long holes, 450'-550' is a distance...

Something fairly neutral is usually your best bet. Something that doesn't turn over, but doesn't fade right out of the hand either. A mythically straight Teebird would be perfect.

For me, that's...

Hyzer through the trees on the right. Probably an Eagle. Playing for the 3. I've taken too many 5+s going up the middle.

We plant more aggressively, though. We tear up the ground as much as golfers (with our feet).

I'm not sure how you understand that it's a mental-game issue, but can't see the solid advice in this thread. I'll sum up:

1. Just do it. Practice makes perfect.
2. Don't worry about how well you...

That makes perfect sense. My legs are still dumb on that side.

My lefty isn't really feeling right, either. Hopefully something just clicks soon.

Thanks!

I see more playing through on small, not busy courses, because there are more boozing mobs out.

I definitely agree that practice makes perfect, even in playing through. I don't think anyone likes...

It definitely is a thing in ball golf. Some busy courses put you on the clock and make it mandatory that you let people play through if you aren't playing at a reasonable pace.

My take on speed, is it's a description of two different things: how fast a disc loses speed, and at what speed it goes from HSS to LSS.

The two biggest factors are rim width and overall height. A...

I'd say VIP is closer to Star. Just based...

I think driving would warm up my body best, so I think I'd do that. I always drive before I warm up my putts.

I would probably be laying up a lot of 30' putts that day, though.

It's all about control of the disc to me. However,...
