A Super Condor could be the same height as a Roc/Buzz and not look like a beach Frisbee. Those trick shot players I referred to didn't have the mythical Super Condor to throw for their videos.

Chuck, you realize that none of this can happen right?.....You can putt with anything you want......in DG and in BG.


This is crazy talk

So it might be a slight improvement but would likely be annoying doing that on more than a half dozen holes don't you think?
Well I think it makes putting harder than you speculate
and the degree to which it is done of course makes a big
difference (maybe steve west has some data to share on
this). And no, I don't find creative basket placements to be
annoying. If I want flat greens with no trees I'll clean
the cobwebs off my golf clubs.

@Scoot_er - That's what they've said about ideas initially considered off-the-wall that all of a sudden get renamed "innovative" when they finally were implemented. One I think we might see happen in the next 10 years is eliminating football kick offs as we know them. Could happen in college or HS before the pros but we'll see.

You can tell people what disc can be used in tournaments..through PDGA approval. Beyond that players should use whichever tool they choose.

Who says I can't putt with a 7iron in golf?....Nobody

My first putter was a DX Shark.


I feel bad that I ever voiced support for ANY changes.....as it leads to this kinda stuff that is comical. There is no reason for a change.....Football has safety issues to deal with.

I agree that some of the changes suggested are comical but you really think that some slight alterations to course equipment are not a positive?

I never said that! I may actually support that...but often Chuck uses these discussions as a vehicle to promote some idea from "way off in left-field"....like Pelosi left.

he is just trying to validate super class discs....wants to progress for new design but use old discs......hehe

I do think some slight tweaks to existent equipment could do alot to improve the skill impact. There would have to be a cost effective way to update current baskets. Something like MJ said with moving the basket tray height up....
A local course last here pulled a Innova basket for some event and when they put it back in they put the pole upside down. The target zone height ended up about 1/2 the normal. It definitely made it more difficult but not at all unreasonable.
