Personally, I'm a huge Dart fan. I find that I get greater putting distance with the same amount of effort compared to the Wizard. From what I've seen, the Judge is more like a Dart than an Aviar.

Good point, and a good idea. If there's not a spot in my bag for it (I already have multiple similar discs), I might look at passing it on to someone else.

Hole 4, short pin
Turtle Rock Park
Markleeville, CA

Pin is downhill and slightly to the left. There's scrub brush all around, and pines will swat down many of your high-flying drives.

Flick roller - exact same as a thumber roller, but with a FH grip. Useful for emergency shots where there's no air space to throw.

I stumbled upon disc golf for the first time at Farragut SP in Idaho in the mid-2000's. Looking back, I believe it was the Wreckreator (http://www.dgcoursereview.com/course.php?id=737).

Dexter has nicknames on most if not all of its holes - some of my favorites are Stairway to Heaven and Pachinko Alley.

We also have a "Vietnam" hole at Cameron Park in Waco, complete with bamboo.
