Yup. And if your buddy plays defensive interference on your disc, then you wouldn't be able to determine its lie, so you'd have to go back to previous spot.

Hell, the exact rule was quoted in my reply. It's 100% legal for you to give permission to a person to play defense on your shot. If they interfere with it (with your permission), it's treated as a...

I am a fan of that caveat to the interference rule. You can tell one of your cardmates to play defense by the edge of the water. "Hey, if I miss this putt and the disc is heading out of bounds,...

Kind of a weird question, but my take:

250', flat and open, I'm probably throwing a Mako on a gentle hyzer.
I'd continue to throw a Mako on a gently hyzer up until about 290-300, where I'd switch...

Got rid of 12 rounds that averaged 945. Added 6 rounds that average 975. Player rating up from 954 to 959. My highest rating in the last 2 years (and since my ACL surgery).
