Thanks Mike C, So i guess it's just a matter of getting it dialled in. Would you say it's pretty sensitive to OAT? more so then the axis,vector or volt which I have far less issues throwing? (also thanks for all your greta video's and contributions on this site!)

Does anyone without a monster arm and maybe a newer player like myself have similar issues with the tangent?

It sounds like a coyote to me. Does it compare?

Everyone says how great it is at perfectly straight shots but I haven't been able to do that once yet, it always wants to do a slow gradual turn and glide.

It's obviously me not the disc but not sure what i'm doing wrong? probably OAT and not enough snap? For now though the axis is much easier to keep straight and I also find it much easier to hyzer flip an opto fuse for a straight line?

thoughts and/or suggestions?
Ha, this is actually kind of funny. I have the exact opposite problem. I wanted mine to do a nice gradual turn, but it just keeps flying straight. I still haven't gotten a whole lot of time with it yet, so maybe after practice I'll like it more.

What? I've always heard Brooks say "Easy Peasy, Yep and Easy."

Darn, I just googled it, and you're right. -1000 interwebz for me.

Tangent

Picture this:

Hole#1 Caroll Marty Disc Golf Course, Ames IA. 200ft hole with tee pad elavated probably 100ft higher than the pin, maybe more. You shoot downhill with the pin on the right. Perfect hole for the Tangent...if you can turn it.

Aimed down, threw it hard, and got a nice "subtle" turn as most have described. First birdie of the year.

When I got down to the pin a friend of mine says to me, "how did that not go in..". I've got a real good feeling about the tangent and this year of dg.

That hole is perfect for a forehand shot

haha that's funny. Hopefully after some more practice I can get it to go straight and you can turn it.

My forehand is not what it used be, but yes, you're right.
