I hear you DiscFifty. It's not easy to have fun when you are playing bad. That's why it's a tip for playing better. Last time you were playing poorly, was it easy to stay loose? Did you start...

Absolutely legal.

I once had a tree puncture a DX Valkyrie two holes into a tournament. At the time I was playing with only four discs and my card was courteous enough to allow me to run back...

I could roll with this choice. For a few years I used only four discs: Valkyrie, Eagle-X, Roc, BB Aviar - all in DX.

I gave up carrying a bag of discs about five years ago and started playing...

Thanks. That makes sense. My error was thinking the desired line of play was directly away from the OB line.

I guess I'm confused. If your lie is two feet from the OB line and you want to throw from about 1.5 feet from OB, isn't that a half foot from the original lie? Why bother to relocate? You're...

Easiest thing might be to just slap a peace sign sticker on whatever mini you like. Stickers are OK on minis.

So this is just my opinion of course; but for a beginner, you have plenty of discs. I'd even suggest you drop the Mamba for awhile, but it doesn't really matter all that much.

I gave up carrying a bag about five years ago. Everyone's game is a little different I guess, but I've demonstrated to my personal satisfaction that I play better using only a handful of discs.

My scoring is pretty much the same in solo rounds and tournament rounds, but casual group rounds are typically at least 2-3 throws higher. Those extra strokes are putts. In a casual group, I won't...

I track my putts and for me, anything in the circle is a putt. I count anything over 45' as a zero putt. I picked 45' as the zero putt line because it was roughly 150% of the circle. If I was...

You might try a DX Wraith in a lighter weight. Personally, I think of a Valkyrie as a slower Wraith. YMMV

Here's a thought... I've heard they have a competition to see who can throw a disc the farthest. Do these distance competitors use light discs or heavy discs?

BB Aviar
Roc

I've won the old fart division in some local tourneys using just those four discs in DX plastic. Teaches you to focus on the shot instead of the disc.
