Paul...I'm getting stationed in Korea this spring for a year (luckily they have a good disc golf scene!) And am looking to play a few tourneys in Japan due to it s close proximity. Any tips for playing 150 class? Right now my 150 bag is nearly all Innova except for Laces (all Innova is DX, Champ or Pro, no Blizzard) Lace x2, Destroyer, Wraith, Teebird, Eagle, RocM Gator, Pig and Rhyno...

Then Paul made the official jump to pro disc golfer and he accepted his first pro cash my annual event: http://www.pdga.com/tournament_results/12807 (Now called the Sky High Show Down.)


He won the event the following year while shattering the course record with a blistering 21 down!

I have to disagree here. I used to carry Wasps only in various stages of wear. I had my understable Wasp (X plastic slightly beat). A straight Wasp (flat top Z beat) and my overstable Wasp (new flat top Z). Those 3 discs covered everything I needed in a mid slot.

And if you really wanted to, you could compliment that w/ an X-Buzzz, Z-Buzzz, and Glo Buzzz (for more o-stable than regular). That's two molds/six mids covering every possible midrange shot you could want.

i will be down there this sunday i'm unsure if i will be down there back to back weekends.

On a similar, but non-violent note: cats or dogs? Or ferrets or weasels or what animal for a pet?

And one last one: would you ever grow facial hair?
100 duck sized horses
dogs,
cats are cool if you can teach them tricks ferrets just smell.

And in midranges I'd think Discraft might have to rethink their whole lineup, as Innova players can get all the possible flight paths from Rocs of various stages of wear, while Discraft offers no such disc, and their players will have to use several mold slots in their midrange selection.

Also, could that promote inconsistent manufacturing too, as when one mold varies a lot from disc to disc, it could be very useful thing, as you'd get many different kind of flights from a single mold? But when you bought a disc of that mold, you'd never know what you're going to get before you throw it. So it'd be a double-edged sword.
i've never thought of it in the manufactures mind but if you think about it each course is different so it would be a challenge more for the player then the manufacture because its up to them to choose the right bag setting for that course or event.

Play Brengle Terrace in Vista while you're at it. It's 10-15 minutes away at the most and a fun course. Make sure to have a map or a local though. There are a few spots you'll need help navigating.

Edit: not arguing, just wondering what some ideas for doing a rule like that effectively.
it would be more responsibility for the pdga to check the discs and possibly give them a stamp or approval for the discs such as the weight is legal and the name of the disc on it some place.
