Disc VS DiscGolfer

As a beginner, most people know it is "themselves" to blame when a bad shot is thrown. As time goes on, generally, people put more discs in their bag. So the debate begins, what is more important, the chicken or the eggs?

Personally, I believe in the disc more than I believe in the thrower.



I plateaued my "throwing ability or distance/finesse game" quite awhile ago(besides putting), but everytime I pick up a newly recommended disc, the doors of opportunity just seem to keep on opening wider and wider.

I blamed my Lat 64 pure when I hit the basket 8 out of 12 holes (on the 2nd or 3rd throw), I gave the putter the credit on 2 long range putts too though

I believe its a fair combination of both. trying to throw a straight shot, its the thrower. You may have to manipulate release and force, but you should be able to throw any disc straight somehow.

with other lines, its not always true. trying to throw a spike hyzer with a leopard? trying to hyzer flip a flx drone? good luck. I'd say some people give the discs too much credit, but certain discs do make certain shots possible.

Most people like to blame the disc, but its most likely the throwers fault. Stupid disc!

I can relate to her. when the fiance and our boys are with us, it becomes a steep drop off on my performance.


Anyway; some discs are better for YOU than others, but generally the YOU part is most important.
