I have once.

why do certain discs without beads have plenty of glide and still zero turn? I was chastised for insinuating that the 2 are not always intrinsically related. Thinking Excalibur. I'm assuming its the PLH?

From a Righ-handed back-handed throwers point of view:

Line up so your right shoulder is facing the target.

Step your right foot towards the target.

move your left foot behind your right foot and towards the target. This will make you turn away from the target, that is ok.

Step your right foot towards the target. This will make you rotate back towards the target.

That is the basic of the x-step. I hope that explains it kinda well, I couldn't find a visual illustration of it I used to have that was way better. Check out some disc golf videos on youtube (I recommend discgolfmonthly) and watch the pros drive off the tee. Most of them use the x-step for longer shots.

I do not understand this question.

What's the best noob disc?

optidiscic 12-18-2010 10:27 PM

let me rephrase (im speakin INNOVESE)

Many have told me that glide is always related to turn unless a bead is involved

I'm asking because the Excalibur has a glide rating of 5 but has zero turn

I don't think the Excalibur has a bead so this confuses me

TIA
