I throw with a "one step" motion. I plant my feet in the release position, them come back with my right foot (RHBH), tap it on the ground near my back foot, and then step forward to drive. It is more...

I have a Fade Tournament bag that I've been using almost daily for two years, and I've got a Fade Crunch that I bought recently for glow rounds and "small bag" days. Both seem like a lot of bag for...

I've got the same bag and put the Fade Quads on it. They are comfortable and the built-in rainfly works well.

This sums up my thoughts completely. I started DG when I was in my 50's and am an 850 ish rated player. So I'm not out to dominate in tournament play. But I enjoy playing with mature, even-tempered...

I've been wondering about the status of that course in McAllen. There was some publicity on in last year and then things got very quiet. Is it open for public play, or ???

I thought that you were only supposed to review courses that you'd played in the past 6 - 12 months??

We run into this regularly within our group. Some are happy to cross wobbly logs, walk over slick rocks, etc. Other, more "seasoned" players prefer better established routes! We have a course where...

Do something completely different. Put your drivers away for a while and play some one-disc rounds with a neutral mid-range. Play a few rounds with your off-hand. Put together a bag with discs that...

I just received a set of MVP 3 led lights from Amazon. How do you turn them on? My other lights have an obvious on/off switch. These are covered by a heavy 2-sided tape and I can't tell where the...

I played Claiborne and Bistinueau on consecutive days, and found the finished Claiborne course (Whitetail) to be a significantly better course than Bistinueau. But that is just one opinion. From your...

I'll second the statement that you'll need a guide to play Mackenzie. I was there a few years ago and met two guys that were playing their weekly mini. It is one of those courses where you "tee off...

I don't have a problem with the reviews of the nine-hole course being disregarded, but I guess that my point is that I had no way of knowing what the status of the course is the day I played it....

I agree that if the course was overhauled significantly after the original reviews, then set up a new course in DGCR and start over. But I fail to see where I erred by reviewing an open public course...

I've played many courses that remained "unfinished" for years. I review the course as it presents on the day that I play it.

I was at the park in Decemebr 2014, and they offered both an 18-hole course and a 9-hole course for play. Both were already up on DGCR so I reviewed them both.

How does that make me "overzealous"?

This. I am more likely to forget my disc in this case than any other as I am frustrated, have an awkward stance, and am probably jumping out to get a clear look at where my shot landed.
