I agree that some disc that you know will fly straight when thrown correctly is the easiest way to do a "reality check" to know if OAT has creeped in or if your disc is just getting too beat. I find...

It means getting your disc to work for different flight patterns from hyzers to straight shots to 'S' curves to late turnovers to pure anhyzers. This drill might help out:

What really helped me was to start thinking of putts in terms of technique and aiming. If I missed a putt, did I miss it because of a technique error or because of an aiming error. That way you...

I don't think NFC will work for that. The 'N' stands for "near" so in phones it only works to a couple of inches. That's not horribly useful for finding discs. It might work to get the info off...

You're confusing the traditional definition of the word "speed" with the disc golf jargon word "speed." Innova defines the disc golf version well.

What they mean when they say that is that faster discs lose less distance into a headwind. In other words, they penetrate better into a headwind. So if you only throw a Destroyer 10' farther than a...

Another way to put it is to think about what you actually use to throw the disc. It isn't your arm. It's your fingers. If you use your fingers and wrist as separate moments (i.e. get "snap" or get...

I find these 200'-300' open shots aren't horribly interesting no matter what the flight pattern.
