Well said justactnormal. One of my best friends throws a Vulcan for pretty much everything, which is bad enough, but he'll throw his Groove for spike hyzers, and approach shots. I get a kick out of it, and it humbles me when I loose a hole to him, me with my "knowledge" of each disc's attributes and all vs. a guy who carries a Vulcan, a Groove, a Archangel, and a ancient and flippy DX Orc. I did buy him a DX Roc, he was getting pretty pissed after every approach went whistling past his target. Truth be told whereas I pride myself on what I've learned in terms of proper form, proper disc selection, disc golf terminology and trends, he is oblivious to that world and just wants to throw. I can't say which is better, I can get pretty upset with myself when I don't execute a shot as I'd hoped, so does he, but to me he has an excuse.... he doesn't know any better.
