Yeah, as jZip pointed out, and I agreed with, Bluetooth isn't a good choice to use with GPS.

Those stickers are probably as good as we'll get for a while.

I was thinking the same thing recently, too. The GPS probably won't get you any closer than the Bluetooth range, so it won't really do any good. WiFi might work better since the range is so much...

How far you throw is, by far, the easiest way to determine what "speed" disc might work for you. The only way to know what disc will work for you is to try them out, keeping in mind that's only...

My guess is it will take some other field needing something very similar for it to be viable for disc golf. In other words there will be some other use, like finding pets or something, that's much...

You're right, it also needs some way to communicate its position to you. My guess is Bluetooth would be the method of choice because it's built into most, if not all, smart phones. I suppose WiFi...

I suppose it depends on how you define all of that stuff. Either way I see what you're getting at, I totally agree with you, but expect an uphill battle. Many people find it to be a major paradigm...

I haven't tried it myself, but my understanding is that it's easier to feel the hit with a 2 or 3 finger grip, but it's also a weaker grip, so you won't get as much distance (assuming you hit it) and...

I think they've been doing stuff like this for a long time. It's just that the marketing has changed. Rather than promoting them as new molds they promote them as tweaks to old molds.

Roll over gives a more understable flight, roll under gives a more overstable flight. How is that not perfectly clear? ;)

It depends on the line you want. You probably won't be able to generate too much nose down if you're looking for a distance line, but if your nose angle and trajectory aren't right it can give you a...

Yeah, it's more of an interesting fact than a useful one. You don't try to throw them faster, they just come out of your hand faster given the same throw. People have verified this using radar guns.

There actually is a difference between how easy a disc is to throw and its speed. My understanding of "speed" is that it's actually a rating of how well the disc cuts through the air (i.e. faster...
