Go to a challenging course by yourself and throw multiple discs each hole. It will really help you get comfortable with what discs to use where. My game sped up so quickly doing this. Within 6 months I went from middle of the road in intermediate to top of advanced.

Dude, you dont have any discs with workable turn- yes you have discs that will turn but they are all point and shoot, no pop up, turn, and fade as their basic flight.

I know the group think mentality here is that tbirds are the goat and strongly suggested to new players but what makes the tb so special is its un natural resistance to turn throughout its life cycle...and that turn is very helpful to new players (for many its a main "click" for form progression). For seasoned players almost all of the main distance drivers ( surge/wraith, force/destroyer..etc) take this flight for them....its the basic dg line....learn to make it happen, then learn to shape it.

Gazelle or cyclone is a good place to start. Eagle is a lil faster, roc a lil slower.

I've been meaning to get a gazelle, but I haven't had the chance. I've been looking at cyclone but I'm really trying to make my discs work. I got lots of discs and I'm trying to figure out which work for me.

What up Kingery.

FTR, Mark Ellis and I both agree with this advice 100%.

Looks like more point and shoot discs to me. The ones that arent likely arent getting a full flight from.you anyways.
Does the orc pop up for you? If not, try a gazelle.

This.
Get off the forums.
Go to local field.
Throw your discs until your body hurts.
Sleep.
Wake up.
Repeat process.
