I'm betting that the relationship between throwing speed and distance doesn't work quite like this because of the increase in drag at higher speeds. For example, assuming no wind, a throw over level...

Interesting that just after these two comments, someone played Tyler and BRP on the same day and set the record straight!

I find it difficult to buy into a claim that "par" is the problem when the very name, disc golf, is just a modification of the name of the sport that it "ripped off." As long as "golf" is in the...

This will just never die will it.

If the disc isn't wobbling/fluttering, it isn't "OAT." "OAT" results in wobble. That's not what the OP described.

A disc is not a top. The combination of gravity, the fixation of the end of the axis to a surface and spin causes a top to wobble, just as gravity causes the top to fall over. Wobble is not caused by...

While a low spin rate can keep wobble from resolving quickly, the low spin rate does not cause the wobble. A "low" spin rate will generally exacerbate understability and overstability by making the...

The friction between your fingers and the disc is what allows you to hold the disc. Water reduces the friction, making it slippery. When the disc is slippery, it makes it more difficult to hold. This...

Oh, I've never played either and can't comment on which deserves a higher rating, but I have noticed this pattern of reviews for people apparently trying to claw a certain course back into the Top 10.

Baiting deer is what you do when you want to kill them.

Feeding deer is what you do when just want them to come around.

Would seeing bird feeders "feel like" seeing bird baiting contraptions?
