I treat 1 winds as zero winds. The only time it messes me up is on sunshine ace runs with a non-WindBreak disc. Even with the same disc, I don't think it affects throws or putts much. Or maybe it...

Figuring out grip may be your big first hurdle. Someone I play with regularly does a weird "no finger" grip with the disc pinched between his thumb and the first knuckle. It's weird, but he manages...

Players of any given rating can look SOOOOOO different.

However, I'd say all 950-rated players must have something that they're really good at. They may just have a really good forehand game, or...

I'm not sure about the DGCR ratings. I'm not really sure how they're calculated. But in general, they've seemed reasonable other than a few courses where it was extremely easy or difficult to score...

I think this is one reason why I like to play PDGA sanctioned (and rated) tournaments on occasion. Of course not all 900 or 950 rated rounds are the same, but managing to break a certain threshold in...

Bump. I just spent too long looking for this thread. Any chance it could become a sticky, maybe in the technique or strategy thread?

I agree that they are not mirror images. My assumption has always been the opposite. I.e. forehand imparts LESS spin but is easier for a new player to impart more velocity or speed overall. Think of...

Yeah, somewhere in the teens I got a Recoil, and then early 20s a Ballista. But any "glide" Recoil is almost as good as a Ballista.

By the way, learning to use a Musket (Accurate/wind and...

Yeah, I keep laying eggs in Pro Tour rounds too, but fortunately for ratings I've been doing better in rounds 3 and 4. I managed to finish on the leaderboard just once, I think.

I don't have Facebook. I actually did take a screen shot of when I got my new rating (and pro tour result). Or do you just like the screenshot of the profile page with name/rating and aces/eagles?

That's a nice high round! I've only broken 1100 once and it was with an 1101. Keeping consistently good rounds and avoiding blow-ups is the biggest thing.

Yeah. To be honest I got lucky and had a good run, without many layouts that make good ratings really tough. I feel like I peaked, though! I just wish I had scraped together one more point to hit...

I managed to hit 999 on my rating! Is everyone way higher now? I had a nice, consistent run with some good runs.

Maybe like Toyota/Lexus or Honda/Acura? Same thing in Japan. Yeah, I don't really know the difference between MVP and Axiom other than that I can get cooler rim colors on an Envy than on an Ion.

My advice is to use what you have, unless you're one of those rare DGCRers that only has a few discs at their disposal. I've always been a "try to forehand everything" kinda guy, and think I'm pretty...

Birdie almost every time.

Light glide or any Ballist straight up the fairway to get to the Z, then a Musket or Explorer, along the fairway, aiming a little high to get some hyzer action. It ends...

Yeah, there might be a tree-free line somewhere (meaning the visible trees don't actually slow the disc), but I haven't figured it out either. My Ballista only gets there half the time. I generally...
