As for the chat, I think tim had this feature enabled for a little while in the early days (before I joined) but turned it off because it wasn't being used. This might actually be useful nowadays though. We have a name for someone replying to a new thread with multiple links to duplicate threads. It's called the prerube, named after the "founder" of the movement. Having the chat would be a nice way to let new members familiarize themselves without incurring the new thread police/prerubes.
It's fine. I do appreciate the info. I don't want to violate the forum law. And it does seem like a chat feature would be useful for the reasons you said and because it would be nice to chat with people. I am always on and always wanting just to chat with others about disc golf.

I guess I just didn't pick it up ater a throw. I guess one of the worse (to me) things is that my bag had just gotten where I wanted it and all the discs were blue or white. I can't afford to go buy new discs to replace them so I am going to use discs I have already. I am thinking a Champion Tee-Bird or Z-Surge will find their way into the bag. Both of which are pink... Sorry for being a whiney bitch but I do feel better.

Don't worry about it. We all have days (or weeks) like that. Losing a disc is the worst feeling.

Here's how I putt.

If I don't think about it, I miss chains 2 feet right.
If I aim 2 feet left, I miss chains 2 feet left.
If I aim dead center and concentrate, I might make one or two dead center, then miss chains 5 feet right.
I'm not kidding.

If I think about it, I think about:
- Thumb position.
- Grip pressure.
- Index finger position.
- Other finger position.
- Position of disc against palm or away from palm.
- Amount of wrist cock.
- Position of front foot.
- Position of back foot.
- Target for focus (link, nub, pole, etc.).
- Amount of bend at waist.
- Shoulder orientation.
- Weight distribution before motion.
- Pre-shot routine, if any.
- Position of disc relative to body left to right.
- Position of disc relative to body up and down.
- Hyzer angle of disc in hand.
- Mung angle of disc in hand.
- Weight transfer during motion.
- Push with off leg.
- Amount of knee bend.
- What to do with off hand.
- Hand position after release.
- Shoulder orientation during throw.
- Follow-through.
- Amount of wrist flick, if any.
- Speed of flight.
- Release hyzer angle.
- Release mung angle.
- When to let go of disc.

So basically this is a thread that is all threads but nothing at the same time.

Yeah, much like "Seinfeld".
Not that there's anything wrong with that.

I heard Innova is going to make a new disc in the next year. Keep it on the down low. Also Discraft will most likely do an ace race next year.
