Once I went on a hitting streak wearing a pair of cleats that were missing a couple spikes so when I got a new pair, I took the same spikes off to keep consistent ha. Of course it was more about confidence and joking with teammates than anything.

I've found I have a few quirky habits in DG as well (holding every disc at the 2 o'clock position, among others). Would you say you have any superstitions or even any routines that are more about luck/confidence? Thanks.
You have slumps in every sport, bad drives,putting,ect...

I can't say I have any superstitions in disc golf but if you have a good round its habit to do the same thing you did that morning.

I'm looking at a ford "flex" right now flex fits dg but I think rooms and gas milage are the biggest factors in dg. Also comfy seats with a great sound system.

I carry a DX,KC,Champion and star roc.

I have 4 putting styles
1) regular spin putt
2) jump putt 33
3) super spin putt
4) pitch putt

All are situational putts for under/over around all kinds of stuff so distance can be used for all of them... Turbo if needed

I think that one cool feature would be custom storage for extra discs in the trunk and to make the speakers look like golf discs

I am Excited to be talking to a Pro and to get to ask my questions.
I try to get out and practice all the time... I throw around 320 to 335 ft with my beast and valkyries. I do have two bosses but i use them for sidearm and get the same distance.
now what Im asking is would there be any other disc out there that would give me more distance?
And is there anything I could do to get the routine of throwing the disc???

Hey Paul, You had mentioned that you were approached by these other start up companies (prodigy and DD I assume). Did you get to try throwing any of their stuff? If so are you allowed to comment on what you thought. I know you are happy with your Innova stuff, just wondering if you got to throw anything and what you thought of it. If you can't say exactly what you threw I understand.
