Hit a wall.

I don't seem to be progressing any further at the same rate. I feel I'd be better off playing games with 3 discs only.

Opto Pure, Teebird and Firebird (for my flick throws)

for a while just to build my game up.

I've been lacking field work, I need to set aside days to do it :/

Stop thinking you need an overstable disc for FH shots - that's one tip right there that will help your game. Don't get me wrong, using them when necessary is a WONDERFUL tool, but so is a hyzerflip flick with an understable disc If the Pure and Teebird seem like a great idea to you, do it up! maybe add a mid that's stable or at least an understable driver that you can power down on for when your Pure just won't quite do it.

Also, you've been playing for less than six months...don't get too down on yourself.

**field work can be great, but so can one disc only rounds. try playing with a Teebird only at some point (using your putter for putts, duh) and see how much you can honestly do with one disc. once you open up your eyes to that you'll open that up to all plastic (hence I only carry 6 molds, 8 most if it's a looong/open course). Also, don't forget to mix in putter only rounds! DISCLAIMER: people on this site will tell you one putter round will fix everything...well it won't. It will, however, teach you to throw nice and smooth

try a line up like this

putter-driving putter
us mid/os mid
us driver/stable driver/os driver

then field work and lots of rounds = success

^^^Well yeah, but if another disc (let's pick the Predator for ****s sake, let alone something like a Sidewinder or Flow) feels equally as comfortable it's not going to have the same flight...not to mention hand+disc comfort isn't always your best choice in DG.

You've only been playing for three months. Give it time. As for the "3 discs only", yeah your probably right.

I have been playing a long time, but I only recently started taking it seriously (competing as opposed to just fasting around) but I got stuck...my game just stopped getting better. What helped me? STOP. THINKING. It sounds stupid, but it works. Quit worrying about overstabe understand blab blab...just throw what feels good in your hands. Do that for about a month, then pay more attention to the tech aspect of the game and you will find yourself a much better player.

It takes a long time to be able to get where you would like to be, just focus on your current game as it stands and it will improve.
