Ahhh... now I get it. Man, I can't wait to get outside and try this out. I've always thought I wasn't getting spin like I should and I think either MJ's or Robbie's should generate a lot more spin.

I introduced a couple of guys to disc golf over the last few weeks, both of whom had played Ultimate, and man, they both had so much more snap than me right out of the gate. It was kind of disheartening. And get a former baseball player to throw overhand? Forget about it. That's all they want to do.

I have used the same grip for years, its the same one i used from playing ultimate and anytime i throw a frisbee. It generates a lot of easy initial spin

So does that mean you still get discs off the rack?

If it's not too personal, how does your sponsorship work?
Does Discraft send you a box of discs/apparel and you pick the ones you like?
Do they pay your entry fees?

Like I said, you don't have to divulge all the details, but I'm sure others would be interested to know as well.

Lets say you have to go right on a 400ft drive assuming you have enough room to work any line you want, do you throw a hyzerflip to a turnover, turnover or anhyzer?

It all depends on what shape is needed. Usually flat and let it turnover
