Avery does a good job on camera. He is well spoken and represents the sport well. Keep up the good work!

great video and i'll say it again... wish these were around when i started. i also like the way you circled the disc in flight on the distance shots. it made them a lot easier to follow.

I liked the video. I also knew what everything meant though. I know it is going to be hard to describe flight characteristics when everyone will make the disc fly a little different based on form, arm speed, snap, and outside variables. But for a beginner to watch this, I think these discs mentioned would be the first ones I would buy, because it seemed really professional and very confident in the presentation.

Good job. I look forward to the next one.

Glad to hear it. One thing we're going to experiment with this year is different "tracking" animations to see what works best for helping viewers follow shots since we don't have the luxury of $80k cameras and veterans of NFL games, lol.

Just a thought: if you're going to be making many videos, you should specify in the name what audience they're geared towards (the name of this video would be "Building the Bag: Beginners" or something along those lines). That way more people will be able to tell whether they will learn what they need to by watching the video.
The one thing that stood out to me as the best improvement over past DG videos:
You circled the disc in flight. Good thinking, overall a nice video. Hope to see many more coming out later.

Why is Avery a meathead? Because he's a big guy?

I don't understand the generalizations.

I think he stated "meathead with a big ego", totally different. Glad we straightened that out. Phew.

Looks like someone has a personal grudge, but isn't telling us all why.

Not sure I see the 'big ego' either. Avery seems like a great guy and, like he himself even said, is a great ambassador for the sport. I've met him a few times and I didn't see an ego at all.

Agreed.
