The primary rip point is your thumb and index finger. If you're managing to touch the disc after it leaves your thumb/index finger, I'd like to see how you're doing it.

After the disc has a spin and a trajectory, it's left your hand; you can't touch it.
If you're adjusting your throw while the disc is still in your hand, then all you're doing is giving it a new...

Doofenshmirtz is technically correct (which is the best kind of correct, as far as I'm concerned).
It's physically impossible for a body to rotate on two axes without ripping in half. Which axis is...

So it's a hyzer-flip, S-turn shot. Not too complicated.

One-angle = pure hyzer
Two-angle = anhyzer release, fade finish.
Three-angle = hyzer release, flip up to turn, fade finish.

Doesn't...

Down 1 again, to 955.
Only one new tournament got added, and yet again, I'm unhappy with the unofficial-to-official ratings drop.
Course 1:
939 -> 941 (up 2)
916 -> 911 (down 5)
Course 2...

14 was a mistake. We wanted to move the teepad back across the road to make for a pretty exciting hole. With the adjusted teepad, moving the pin to dead center was the best move. We marked where we...

I really like the new 6. Statistically, 6 was the 2nd easiest hole on the course (behind 14), so it was pretty much a wasted hole. Bumping the pad back should really cut down on the birdies without...

Bad poll options. Maybe 125 for me. I can tomahawk over 200 probably. Really only use them to get out of trouble.

Course is open and looks great. We had about 85 people show up for the grand opening event. (If we could consistently get that many people out for our PDGA tournaments I'd be thrilled.)

Well, the tricky part is what you mean by "open". By Nov 1 the course should be cleaned up with the baskets in place. Unfortunately, the bridge by hole 8 will not have been completed, so the city...

Not quite as good as Central or Shoally/VaDuMar, but better than everything else in the area. We'll incorporate it into PDGA events immediately. Could possibly be a fun crosstown event with Shoally.

Generally correct. Lift is a function of wing shape and speed. Two discs from the same mold, thrown at the same speed and angle of attack will generate the same amount of lift.
