One feature I haven't seen in a bag yet is a dedicated spot for a Golden Retriever. I'd like it to be away from everything else, its own special spot, fit snuggly, have excellent drainage, but also...

I am a proponent of "discing down." I have gone to a football field and measured quite accurately my throws with a large number of discs. Repeatedly.

And I discovered that the slower speed discs...

Thanks for the clarification. It's really too bad that there's mixed expectations. I would assume that a major disc golf tournament wouldn't be profitable for anyone except the people actually...

Some friends and I spent a weekend at Hybrid Hills, er, Highbridge Hills, shortly after the 2007 Worlds.

What did the PDGA do to make John upset? What went wrong?

I throw my Buzz around 260ft max. Beyond that I don't have any control over it. If thrown flat it fades noticeably. I would bet the reason you don't get any fade is because you have so much spin...

I'm a big believer in looking solely at the target on approach shots. I'd defined approach shots here as something you can reach without having to look away :-) If the shot is far enough that you...

Thanks for the feedback Volklgirl and roadtripstuff! I appreciate it. We'll try playing more rounds of catch (we've only done that some).

It is cool that FritoLay put in a course. I have stock in PepsiCo, so technically I own part of the company. Maybe that'll get me in :-)

My biggest disappointment is in Plano itself. It's a...

I got the u shaped thingee with my Fade bag, but I didn't see any other way to divide up the discs. That is, there isn't a way to divide up drivers from mids from putters. I tend to just slide a...

Despite it being April Fool's, I think the basket is conceptually a good idea. If disc golf got rid of the chains, we'd hear a lot less bitching about how unfair the basket was, the chains pushed my...

I agree and that's well said. The nuts and bolts is that weight and spin and so forth are all interconnected, and wind participates in this equation too. The faster speed of the disc relative to...

I bought a 175g Boss when it came out. This was still back when I didn't really understand the relationships between weight, speed, and spin. As with all my high-speed disc purchases, everytime I...

I agree--wind has exactly that affect on stability. I think the stability of a disc is the behavior it exhibits when it has the "right" amount of spin. So an understable disc that doesn't have...

No, we collected forehand and backhand throws. However, I only throw LHBH, so for me in particular the data was very limited. But the other guys can throw both.
