That's a good setup. I'd add a banshee, firebird, predator, xxx once you progress.

A good truly overstable disc is very useful.

If you want to clean up your form and learn to throw farther, try playing some rounds with only your rocs and putters. It will help. If you can put a putter 250-275' and a roc 300+' then other discs become easier to throw.

Really??? throw a putter 250??? thats pretty impresive if a player can do that.
right now i could get a roc 250ish and a putter maybe 150 to 200.
I will someday get there... hopefully.
thank you guys for the info.

Many players can throw a putter 250 feet, including myself...and I suck. It just takes field work, and lots of practice. You'll be able to do it one day too.

Putters will fly further than you think, especially ones with plenty of glide (i.e. Wizard, Pure, big-bead Aviar molds (JK, KC, Yeti, old DX Aviar). There are more, of course.

There's a lot of great info on this forum (technique forum sticky, for starters) about learning to throw putters a long way and using the skills and technique you learn when you throw mids and drivers. If you're throwing a Wraith 360 feet or further, you've probably got the ability to put that putter out 275 or more, mids in the 300 range, and fairways somewhere between 325 and 350. Throw putters in a field to work on it, and then translate those skills back to your regular rounds.

Word play on Feld"berg" "borg". when he was winning everyhitng back in 2008/09 he was like a machine and then there are countless "assimilation" jokes as well.

Gotcha. That's kind of what I thought. As a Star Trek fan, it piqued my curiosity.

Let's put it this way. If you could learn to throw accurately, even if you never throw more than 350 feet, AND if you learned to putt very well, you could be a successful pro disc golfer.

The whole trick of course, is learning consistency, throw after throw after throw.
