I've heard of a few roller aces at Delaveaga in Santa Cruz, but that's because there are tons of roots out there that work like ramps for the discs. Barsby aced one of the hardest holes out there at 2011 worlds I think. Just hit a root right before and jumped in.

If its a natural ramp, i like the idea. Build a little mound of dirt up one side of the bucket

I think we should also begin to introduce the mando loopty-loop for rollers. And no course is complete without a spinning windmill that you must throw through.

Artificial rams are a definite and resounding NO. However, using the earth around to create angulations leading to the basket that could put the perfect roll into the chains is a cool idea. As stated before, hole 3 at N.E. Lions in Norman has a perfect slope up towards the basket that will shoot a perfectly thrown roller at the basket, and really this is the only way I can see an ace happening on this hole; there's just not another direct way to get chains height coming out of the valley. To get a throw to the basket you have to stay low and out of the trees and, unless you were to get some kind of unlikely skip, the only way to get back uphill and chains height is to ramp up off the hill that leads back up to the basket.

Having natural lumps and mounds just blends in with the landscape and doesn't seem cheesy. Having bmx ramps near the basket just seems kitschy and cheap looking. Plus, if you're not a disc golfer, those mounds and humps would be nothng more than just that: mounds and humps. To the discer, they'd present an entirely new set of challenges and opportunities.

Blue Ribbon Pines has a basket that is kind of dug into a hole so the chains are basically level with the ground around the green. There is a log worked into the landscaping that is a perfect natural ramp for a roller ace. I don't think something like this is too artificial or unnatural. Plus, it would be one hell of a shot to see!

On the clash DVD Timmy Gill said that Barsby's roller ace is the reason this hole is constructed as such. That being said I still think it'd be dam near impossible seeing as the fairway is pretty littered with trees and isn't the most roller conducive to begin with.

If we want to keep disc golf associated with things like mini golf or bean bags then by all means add ramps in front of baskets. Also the only players allowed on the course will be those wearing tye-dyes and white guys with dreadlocks.
