Yes, Blizzard Champion from Innova. They also make Starlite, and other manufacturers have their own versions. There are also the "150 Class" discs by Innova, and I suppose others.

A cute little course---with a couple of dumb holes---which is close to my house, and quite a...

Depends on the definition of "short hole". All under 300'? Average under 250'? 200'?

Earlewood (18 holes/4800') and Timmons (18 holes/4500') get my vote, but they average about 270' and 250',...

I've got Sports and M-14s, among lots of other things, and agree with these two posts. Assuming it's in the budget, I find the sport significantly better than an M-14.

I've added chains to both. ...

How athletic is this 12-year-old? I coached baseball, and some kids that age can throw harder than most adults. I once watched a small-for-his-age 13-year-old throw a disc 550' (on a downhill...

In support of the O.P., it is one of the few sports in which a tree will reach out and slap a disc out of the air.

I suppose sailing sports are more wind-affected, but winds don't swirl over...

Just one lake, but a couple of water carries, the exact number depending on which layout you play. The big one I hit the water frequently, but usually eventually get the disc back. It's the water...

I don't think the rulebook is all that simple, especially for a beginner. It seems 80% of it covers things that rarely happen---but, of course, have to be covered in a rulebook for when they do. A...
