Although he is an undeniably skilled player, I find Chris Dickerson really uninspiring to watch. Good solid fundamentals, but I never see him go up a gear and play aggressive. That makes it hard for...

I'm just going to pipe in because I have something to offer when it comes to treating leather boots. I am kind of footwear afficianado. If you want to know what people with expensive shoes treat...

If you don't mind Prodigy, the Pa1 has a fairly overstable flight, but becomes a very nice glidey straight putter over time.

I agree. Paul is a veteran, and I've seen him correctly argue the rules a bunch of times live. I've even seen him correctly give the benefit of the doubt to a player in a tight race situation, where...

You'd could artificially create higher scores, yes. You could also use mozzarella sticks like they did at USDGC. You could make scoring higher in any number of ways. The issue is that most of these...

I mean, we just had a couple of very technical pro tour events.

I think some courses do it better than others. Milo MvGyver (sp?) is a good example of a course that allows the bombers to...

This thread is too long for me to read the whole thing, but something I didn't see much of in the first 10 or 15 pages was the importance of course design.

Well, I am a highschool physics teacher. When I say "more gyroscopic" I'd call that clear enough. To be more specific I could say that it "conserves its angular momentum" better than another object....

I agree with your main point, but that isn't quite what's going on with MVP. If we could say "this Gyro disc flies 5% farther," I agree that would be huge. But we can't. If we could say "it flies 5%...

I used to say on the old forums all the time, that even if Gyro does make a disc fly significantly differently, sometimes that difference isn't going to be desirable. It will make a disc more...

Way back in the days of Dicgolfreview.com, someone tore a few of their discs apart and weighed out all the materials. Even back when they were a new company we kinda knew it was a gimmick. But yeah,...

That's true, but to be fair that was only after round 1. He went on to lose by 19 strokes. Both of them played to about their rating on average during that tournament, and that was the final result....

While I wish I was 20 years old, I am not. I watched Climo play in person on several occasions while he was still in his early 30's playing Open. I'd like to know who before Climo took disc golf as...

This makes no sense as a metric. It was relatively easy for Climo to be head and shoulders above his much weaker competition. Go back and watch some really early video of USDGC. The vast majority of...

And if I was racing against a bunch of 8 year olds I would be the best sprinter. Its just not the same game anymore. There are like 5 players today objectively better at disc golf than Climo ever was.

Low forehand with a skip/light ballista gets me inside 40 ft. almost every time. Sometimes the wind forces to make a weird or longer putt, but I'd say I get hole 1 at least 90% of the time.

Yeah, you're looking at the word stable to mean straight, and my whole argument is that discs don't have absolute flight characteristics. You can only compare them to each other on a spectrum. See...
