If you can find a domey, stiff Pro Destroyer, that is the disc you want. It will start out stable to overstable, and won't beat in too fast if you just throw it for max d shots.

The disc will...

Beautiful day today. It was a bit windy, and a bit muddy, but conditions were great.

I think because it was so nice out, I was playing really well. I threw my longest throw ever today too, about...

And beyond that, it just drives...

Speed on the Innova scale is taken directly from rim width. The JLS has a rim width of 1.6cm, so it would be a speed 6. The Teebird is 1.7, so it is speed 7. The Firebird is 1.9, so it is speed 9,...

It's definitely still like that in the summer. The prairie grass was almost up to my head when I played it last.

It's a great course, but it is rough in the summer. It'll be interesting to see how...

A lot of the guys I play with are much older than me. Some have been playing since before I was born, in fact. I love playing with these guys, because they play a different game. I'm 32 and they...

For the red pin, I usually throw a TB or River. That pin position shown in the picture is the short position. I'm not sure of the actual distance, but it seems to play longer than 298' for me, hence...

They do. I love this course, but rarely play it in summer when the prairie's in full bloom. It's watery, so there are a lot of mosquitoes on the technical, wooded holes, and the rough is outrageous...

I almost never try anything new. The molds, and in many cases, the discs I throw are just what I started with. The newest mold in my bag is the Ion, which was pretty hot about 2.5 years ago when I...

That's just what I was thinking. I can't see this fitting into any of the other categories, except for maybe geometry. But that connection seems really thin to me. I'm looking for a new line, though...

Yeah I wonder about this name. The only thing I can think of is the notion of aliasing in computing, or an alias command. But I can't really make much sense of it.

Maybe it's a new line based on...

I regularly play with a 59 year old who gets a consistent 375'. He says he's lost some distance over the years, but only about 50' off of his consistent max d. I've played with other older gentleman...

I get 1 every once in a while. But I play for 3 on hole 2 usually; I should try to go for it more. It's one of those holes that are just out of reach for me, like 8, 16, sometimes 17. I've even...

Good question.

It would improve greatly to be sure. Probably enough to compete at a pretty high level. But not enough to win in the real world.

I usually hover around par for the long tees to...

First of all, one thing I don't understand is all this talk of max d without accuracy. I guess the way I learned to throw (Comets and putters only for a while then fairways then, etc.) makes it...

I like Rivers with a moderate dome. All the flat Rivers I've thrown have been a bit too understable out of the box for my taste. I usually don't like domey discs, unless they're Comets, Rivers, or...

So I picked up a 171 Opto River a while back and I've been testing it. It has the mild dome I like, a sweet stamp, and very grippy Opto plastic.

But sometimes I'll throw the Teebird hard and get it out there with the OLFs, and...

Thirded.

It's all about the dome (or rather the high shoulder). I usually throw domey 3rd run LE ESPs, but I love Xs and Zs too (in that order). Just picked up an older, unused glow Z that has the...
