I may be incorrect, but I swear I read somewhere that top level pros generate 1500-2000 rpms?

#1 is side slip. So a flat flying disc would veer right while remaining flat. The air flowing along the left edge (think of the air directly on the outside rim of the disc, not above or below it)...

We certainly don't have complete knowledge. No one can even say for sure why a beat in disc acts more under stable.

Additionally the spin of the disc does have an effect on the flight...

I don't see how this is much different from a non-lateral hazard in ball golf (other than the lack of an option to re-tee).

For all intents & purposes regular OB is essentially a the same as a...

What exactly is the point of a mandatory drop zone anyway? I could never figure out their purpose other than the obvious need to circumvent the lack of non-lateral hazards.

trouble with beaded discs

I lost my buzz in the fall, and due to none of the local big box stores carrying any midrange other than the roc, I decided to give it a try.

For some reason it does not want to come out of my...

An equation that should get you close to the PDGA rating system is:

rating = (par * 3 - score) * ( 500 / par)

This works out to 10 points per stroke for a 50 par course.

Keep in mind for it...

It actually a lot less complicated that that. A disc that flies straight (i.e. not fading or turning) at a given speed is going to be stable at that speed regardless of angle or RPM, as long as it...

I always try and run over a disc I see in the road. I figure I'm doing a favor. It's obviously too overstable and needs beat in a bit!
