Yep, leaving a disc and knowing you did is the worst feeling. I'd much rather put one in a lake. At least that guy was lost in the line of duty...and can be remembered fondly. The one you left is...

Agree on spike hyzers as far as ranging but a flex shot is the hardest one for me to know how far it is going. Sometimes it catches the wind, sometimes not. Just curious, with your skill set, what is...

I did a trip to the USDGC and Charlotte, with SH in the middle, about the 2nd year I'd been playing. All those great courses with a newbie arm. If there is a hell, it would be something like that...

I have a beat *D, and I can get that beautiful S turn most of time. When it's windy (headwind) it can be hyzer flipped and if I hit it right, it will be my longest drive of the day. If I miss it, it...

I feel personally betrayed when my Destroyer flips like a dog begging for a belly rub. I then feel compelled to point out to my friends that the disc I just threw is not supposed to turn over as if I...

Yep, I've lost the same River 3 times. It keeps coming back to me, so I keep chucking it.

Yes, I have one in one of the lakes on your property. I can't remember if there is more than one lake. I know you don't remember who I am, but I played Stoney Hill when I was just starting out. It's...

Which type of disc do you most often lose?

First of all, I know none of us lose discs anymore because we've learned to control them. :o But when you used to lose a lot of discs, which type did you have the hardest time keeping. Maybe it's the...

I would have loved to see that 800 foot shot, especially with a fuse, which I could never do anything with when I had one. I didn't have one long, because it was the type of disc that went far and...

If he would have said neutral discs, it would have never occurred to me to respond. I admit I was being a bit ass-ish.

I'm hoping you mean you can do this because you throw both forehand and backhand. If you are throwing backhand only, I'd love to hand you a gator, drone or ape and ask you to throw a nice smooth...

From the wording it sounds like RH backhand. Assuming backhand, you can get most discs to move left if thrown with enough hyzer since that's what they want to do naturally. My guess is that you are...

Are you throwing forehand or backhand? People are probably going to chime in about release angles and disc stability but it will be hard to help unless we know what you are currently doing.

I'll probably get shouted down, but I think the word snap is a bit of a misnomer and I often wish that new players would forget about it. I wish I would have. What you really want is the thing that...

Yes, just a casual round. We were able to get 2 of the 3 back since they landed right on the edge. I think the moral of the story is that my big armed chucker friend (and I say that gently, he is a...
