Pros: Paco and Badlands are long, challenging courses. Guys who play either one a lot are usually pretty good at playing disc golf.
Cons: you live at 84th and Wadsworth. If you have a life beyond...

They are sexy.
They make pretty lines when you throw them.
Some drivers fly better for you than others.
Even if you don't throw 400', the right driver can get around, through, over and up to your...
