Sorry if this has already been asked but I am curious which courses do you play when you are home in Florida? Do you mix it up? Where do you do field work if you do? Also, have you ever tried the practice putting area around basket 4 at Hammock Park in Dunedin? Thanks for taking the time to answer questions on this forum!

Obviously Millenium and Innova don't have the same realtionship that Discmania and Innova have, but I'm wondering if, because there IS a connection, however tenuous, if you are allowed the throw Millenium in competition? I've never seen an Innova pro do so, so I can assume the answer is "no" but perhaps it's as simple as none of you really care for their discs.

If you could throw Millenium, what discs would you throw, if any?

Also (sorry for the double question) if you could bring back one extinct Innova mold, what would it be? My vote is for the Pegasus.

Team Innova can throw Discmania and Millennium. They are both molded by Innova.

So you're saying that a majority of pro DG'ers pivot on their heel? That doesn't even seem natural. I remember Dave and The Champ commenting in their Fundamentals video about staying on the balls of your feet. Seems natural to me. Heel pivot seems like you're asking for trouble.

Almost every pro rotates on their heel.

Your heel is more in line with your leg than the balls of your feet, it's a lot better for you knees.

I have heard that heel pivot is bad for your knees. Huh. Weird.
