The Patapsco Ice Bowl will have a two-disc limit, playing short to long (7,884’ for 18 holes). I played a two-disc round to practice for the ice bowl. After trying a couple of combinations I settled...

I continued working with a modified grip today – start with a 3-finger Bonopane, and then curl my index finger under the rim. This grip definitely helps keep the nose down, making anhyzer shots much...

Those would be my top two recommendations. You can also pull up the PDGA approved discs list and look for shallow rim-depth putters if you want other options. I used to have a spreadsheet of shallow...

Hey wait - someone posted about their top MVP disc used for bombing a long one. Are you allowed to do that on this thread? :\

Yep, that looks like an FD - slow in the air, tight S-curve, workable, usually lands farther than you expect . . .

Looks like a gorgeous, fun course, too.

I voted 3-4. Whenever I decide that a disc will stay in my bag forever and stock up, one of two things happens:

1. I learn the disc so well that I stop losing them; or
2. I switch discs.

Quick and to the point. When I said:



Hawk Hollow was one of the first courses that sprang to mind.

I played a few holes over lunch, mostly re-working my grip to keep the nose down. Wind was blowing 15-25 mph, so I will withhold definitive conclusions until I can throw in calmer conditions. A few...

Prefer low 160s for distance. For stable-OS distance I will dip into the upper 150s.

I used to throw all 150s drivers, so light weights are not a problem. I like to keep driver weights fairly...

I throw Clutch now instead of Pure, but both are shallow, neutral-stable putters. Have you tried the Harp as an OS complement? Harp is the same depth as Clutch and Pure (1.4 cm) and available in VIP...

350 is my current goal, so that's what I voted. Of course if I manage to throw 350' regularly, I will start noticing all of the holes I could reach if I threw 400' . . .

G Line has more turn compared with S Line, in my limited experience. S-Line flies more like you describe your 1st run C-Line: moderate turn and fade, basically a tight S-curve at my distance.
