Lost my first Disc

I've been playing about two months now.. and it happened, I lost my first Disc.
This week I finally started to tee off using my RHFH well I rolled my wrist and it landed with a SPLASH...

The course I play at most has 6 holes where water comes into play, all to the left. Up until about two weeks ago I was hesitant to to throw these holes, but it was bound to happen.. There's now one less Dynamic Escape buzzing around the course.

Oh well... I have been pleased for the most part with the sidearm shot, Ive been strictly RHBH to this point.. but the sidearm has been nice when I needed my disc to end fading right... except when rolling my wrist

It's your first, and won't be your last. It sucks, especially when it's a disc you really like, but that's why players buy backups.

That you've only lost one so far is pretty remarkable, I think.

And yes, there is a mega thread about lost discs, but I think this is a little different. This is a story about a rite of passage for a dger, not just any lost disc

If you're new to the sport and your home course has 6 water holes, it might not be a bad idea to get a floater. Alot of people give them crap (because there aren't many good floaters), but it can help save alot of lost discs.

I threw a floater into the middle of a pond and it just sat there, floating, mocking me. I could see it well enough to know that unless I had a boat I wasn't getting out there to get it back. No wind, not enough rocks to throw at it, no stick even remotely long enough.

Floating discs work in theory but it doesn't mean you still can't lose them in water.

It's always a sad day when you lose a disc. My friend has lost more discs in the shortest amount of time than anyone. We got him into disc golf this year and I think he has lost 5 so far, maybe even 6 or 7. He recently lost his brand new Mako3 and Ti Drone by playing in the rain by himself. He has gone through a lot of plastic in a short amount of time. The Mako and Drone could probably be found with a slight effort so I keep telling him I'm going to claim that Mako as my own.

So try not to feel too bad since you haven't spent $100+ on discs in a couple months
