Keep in mind that there isn't a lot of money in disc golf and it takes a lot of time to travel to all those different places. Right now it seems like pro disc golf is geared towards guys in their...

There has been a ton of great advice in this thread. I'll just reiterate that a vast majority of players never develop "snap." Many will claim it, but unless you're crushing fairway drivers close...

I've also seen new players wading around in ponds because their Teebird or Buzzz didn't flex like it "always does." ;)

But it doesn't show that those athletes, in general will do the same thing or that it's impossible to do if you don't already excel at other sports. The logic behind it is terrible.

But how do...

Don't forget with very overstable discs like the Banshee you can throw them on an anhyzer and get a big 'S' that fades hard (flex shot). Your Teebird or Buzz won't do that.

I'd still get someone else to confirm it. I'm like 90% sure that's what happened, though. You can probably PM Chuck for the official story.

IIRC, they revoked the approval after some grace period. The reasons were for the PDGA to make more explicit rules regarding the shape of the disc. It wasn't because it gave an unfair advantage,...

I'm assuming they're "Pro Line" Leopards. If they are it's just an early blend of Champ from before they started calling it "Champion." I remember finding a lot of 150 class Pro Line Leopards out...

I throw Rocs and I like them heavy, but not max weight and either DX or KC Pro. Those plastics tend to be easier to control and longer and mids seem to be pretty durable anyway so they still last a...

Teebirds for straight shots and your favorite of the others for shaping lines. I throw Gazelles because I have them, but if I were starting over I'd go with the Eagle X.

That's one of the first ones that came to mind for me, too.

The Speed Demon came out and was super overstable, so they released the Spirit...which turned out to be...

Plus, not only will they only be kind of similar, but they'll beat up to be less and less like the disc you want.

FWIW, I've found that it's easiest to feel and replicate a good hit with a mid. Putters and fairway drivers aren't bad, but for some reason I get more good hits with a mid than any other disc type.

While anecdotal evidence supports that, why wouldn't they buy bigger batches of the same material and make bigger runs? Both of those are advantageous from a manufacturing standpoint.
