So narrow minded......... discs are round, rollers are as natural as flying.


BUT an artificial ramp would be ever so lame. Right up there with artificial OB.

Do you also believe every shot needs a spotter and the disc should be placed at the spot of contact with the ground?

Rollers are a part of the game, and have been since day 1. Its a good throw to have in your arsenal, and can get you out of some jams.

First they came for the jump putters, and I didn't speak out because I didn't jump putt.
Then they came for the rollers...

How about a windmill, or a pirate ship in front of the basket?

"Walk the plank" and score the hole a 0!

gimmick - fun for certain events, but not as a serious part of the game.

Or, bury the baskets flush with the ground ( la Flyboy #22) to give rollers a legit chance.
Meh, maybe for a short hole or something where there is a long one too. My fave hole of all places is a basket thats up in a tree. Its the coolest thing ever and me and my friends have a blast chucking our discs at it over and over. I think worrying about getting Aces is kinda silly. So much fun just chucking discs.
