I have one of these 150 class TBs that are really gummy. It's a really fun disc and you're right, in the right wind and with the right throw they go really far.

This is an ace run with the Ion on an anny. I've hit chains full on but spit out, and I'll never have the chance to ace it in its old position because this hole has been altered. The basket was too...

If you can find a domey, stiff Pro Destroyer, that is the disc you want. It will start out stable to overstable, and won't beat in too fast if you just throw it for max d shots.

The disc will...

Beautiful day today. It was a bit windy, and a bit muddy, but conditions were great.

I think because it was so nice out, I was playing really well. I threw my longest throw ever today too, about...

Speed on the Innova scale is taken directly from rim width. The JLS has a rim width of 1.6cm, so it would be a speed 6. The Teebird is 1.7, so it is speed 7. The Firebird is 1.9, so it is speed 9,...

It's definitely still like that in the summer. The prairie grass was almost up to my head when I played it last.

It's a great course, but it is rough in the summer. It'll be interesting to see how...

A lot of the guys I play with are much older than me. Some have been playing since before I was born, in fact. I love playing with these guys, because they play a different game. I'm 32 and they...

For the red pin, I usually throw a TB or River. That pin position shown in the picture is the short position. I'm not sure of the actual distance, but it seems to play longer than 298' for me, hence...

They do. I love this course, but rarely play it in summer when the prairie's in full bloom. It's watery, so there are a lot of mosquitoes on the technical, wooded holes, and the rough is outrageous...

I almost never try anything new. The molds, and in many cases, the discs I throw are just what I started with. The newest mold in my bag is the Ion, which was pretty hot about 2.5 years ago when I...

I get 1 every once in a while. But I play for 3 on hole 2 usually; I should try to go for it more. It's one of those holes that are just out of reach for me, like 8, 16, sometimes 17. I've even...

Good question.

It would improve greatly to be sure. Probably enough to compete at a pretty high level. But not enough to win in the real world.

I usually hover around par for the long tees to...

I like Rivers with a moderate dome. All the flat Rivers I've thrown have been a bit too understable out of the box for my taste. I usually don't like domey discs, unless they're Comets, Rivers, or...
