I would agree with PBmercil as well. I don't think pros "struggle" with upshots at all. I think they are trying to nab the extra throw by giving their upshots a tentative run at the very least. ...

I've found that the course is the most determining factor in what aspect of my game I need the most.

The second determining factor is the quality of my drives.

I agree with jukeshoe, that on a...

In the video posted, looked like he threw a DD disc there. Tough to tell for sure. It looked pretty beefy to me. I haven't thrown any DD stuff besides the Suspect, but based on their flight ratings...

Based on my experience, the puddle top ESP Zones are the beefiest Zones out there. They have very little glide and you need to throw them hard to get them to "fly".

For what it is worth I would...

I second the Buzz OS, a little faster and a little more glide than the Zone. I bag both discs and prefer the Buzz OS for the described shot.

Hickory Hills is one of my favorites. I would definitely choose it over Myles Kimmerly. With that said, I think both are great courses.

Read "Golf is Not a Game of Perfect" by Bob Rotella. Even though it was written for golf, most of the mental techniques are just as relevant to disc golf.

For the record, a straight shot in disc golf is one of the most difficult throws. Any shot thrown with clockwise spin will fade left at the end of its flight, while any throw with counter-clockwise...

Which way are the discs turning when they "meat-hook" on you? For a RHFH thrower a meathook would fade right very hard. If it is crashing left out of your hand, then you will need to clean up your...

Ringer or a Zone would work too. Zone's are a little fast for a putter, but definitely have shallow rims.

520' uphill with a Max is an absolute blast. I used to throw Champ Maxes quite often. Even on gigantic flex lines I could only get around 350' with them. Great work house driver in the wind though.
