I've been playing for 1,5 years and my max distance varies from 300 to 380 feet (pretty inconsistent). Should I start from scratch and throw only slow discs to get more distance in the long run?
I think fast discs can ruin people. I Started with a Dx cheetah, then a Champion Beast, then Orc Then a Wraith, i started slow to fast but i never learned true control until i got a Teebird in my bag. The way i believe fast discs can hurt disctance is by not learning proper form and technique, fast discs need you to just turn them over hard to where slower more predictable show your flaws in your form and shots

You say you have a beat roc3 in your bag

How long did it take to beat in, and how beat is it?

about 2 months of throwing it everyday and every hole i could. if thrown flat it will fade right the whole way until the last couple feet then it will straighten out. won't roll though its not that beat yet

I find this hilarious for some reason.

Stingrays are great for slow turnovers and are maybe the best beginner's disc. Likely the golf disc most similar to a Frisbee.

Once you get to a certain point of skill though, they are just too flippy.

Sounds silly, but if you're practice putting an hour a day 3 days a week, all the extra time fiddling with a mini adds up (so does the extra reaching/bending).

Even just playing a round of 18 holes - that's 18 less times you're bending down. Stuff like this seems minute, but it adds up over time.

And I'm with Paul on the practice thing - if you're not always using a mini to practice every putt, no reason to in a tourney.
I couldn't have said it better myself. Glad to see the player with the best round ever also usually doesn't use a mini (not Nick, I just don't know how to multi-quote). I only use one when it improves my footing or I want to throw the same disc I just threw.

Cool thanks. I actually picked up one of the McBeth champ roc3 and Im liking it so far. The shoulder is lower on these and they seem to fit my hand/grip better than DX or KC pros.

Im throwing a 172 and its nice and straight. Would a 180g be more overstable or should I try to find one of the CFR Glows?

Hey Paul. Wish I could have seen you at Little River in Moore, OK! Full time jobs really cut into my golf time... Haha. What do you think about the course? Any holes you really enjoy? And also you should come 4-5 miles south and come play a round at Griffin park in Norman, OK. With me... :P

Who is the most dominant lhbh player(true lefty)? Also i feel alot of courses I encounter kind of favor being designed to challenge a rhbh. Would you agree with this being true on most of the courses you encounter? Would a 1040 rated lefty have an easier time on the nt? Just curious

Thank you, Paul, for your part in making the Inaugural Little River Open a success. Yes, there were problems that will need to be ironed out but I know the TD's tried to do their best. They don't have a lot of TD experience and I'm sure they will figure out and fix all of the issues they were having in the future. I volunteered to help with whatever I could. I was in the tent all Saturday and most of Sunday. I did, however, get to watch your and Brittany's final 9.

As for the course, Little River DGC is still in it's infancy. Four months ago, most of the front nine still didn't have baskets in. 5 and 8 were still being carved out of the trees. Having played there quite a few times during the last five months, there have been some dramatic playability changes. The first time I played 8 (long), I took my best score on that hole (5) and haven't been able to match it since. There were A LOT more trees in the fairway and there was only one approach to the green (to the right, the clearing from the fairway to the green on the left was a wall of trees and thorns). The only thing that I really don't like about the course is the long walk from 17 to 18 and some of the really short holes (to a much lesser extent).

I hope you, and Brittany, enjoyed the tournament even though there were some SNAFUs (and some major wind) along the way. It was a pleasure to at least shake your hand and thank you as you were leaving the tent for the final time.
