it is more than likely a timing issue. most griplocks have nothing to do grip. your other grip is probably allowing your discs to slip out of your hand, so it is a timing issue.

you can't grip to hard at the right time, but you can grip to hard at the wrong times. ideally you want to have a relaxed grip right before and up to the hit, and then you want to grip the shiz out of it.

What does this mean: "Pool A follows the USDGC model .........tee times on a 21 holes "

Does it mean one round per day?

Yes. That means that anyone playing in pool A will play one 21-hole round on tee times... basically how ball golf events are run.

more of an equipment n00b question but... would it be recommended to purchase multiple discs of the same mold in high and low weight or buy a single and break it in and then get a new one later to complement it? just going off general experience here. is the over/under stability of different weights enough to warrant purchase of two discs at once vs waiting til the break-in period is over.

thinking <170 and >=175

Weight doesn't affect stability as much as many people think. I highly recommend buying a single and breaking it in and then get a new one. For example, buy a Teebird and a Leopard, then once the Teebird wears in, buy a new Teebird and ditch the Leopard (or keep as a roller disc, etc.). Or, you could buy a Champ Teebird and a DX Teebird and thrash the DX one with some thumbers and tree hits and use that Teebird for understable until the Champ eventually wears in.

Now, having a drastically lighter version can be nice for distance, it's easier to get a 150 Eagle up to speed compared to a 175 Eagle.

Does higher lower wight in a driver affect the ease of getting the nose down at all? For example, would it be more difficult or less difficult to get the nose down on a 150 Teebird versus a 175 Teebird?
