On that hole, when there's not a helping wind, I just aim further left and take the roll off the hill. This works in a lot of winds that would dunk you into the river on a better line. Results in...

I'm 50% successful aiming (given neutral-ish wind) a L/G forehand at the middle of the base of the two trees blocking the arch, with some hyzer. I wait for the reticule to drift to the right, and...

Interesting. My Fuse and Pure feel less stable on forehand (but that's not a big concern as those come up rarely). My Ballista and Recoil are clearly more stable, and my L/G Ballista has definitely...

I don't get the feeling from watching disc golf that putting fails to provide excitement or scoring separation. Is there a statistical case to be made here? What's the problem in the first place? I'm...

The latest open tourney scores are a bit much. Looks like some people found an exploit.

Heh, just fell victim to this when I got the 1010discs email that new Discraft signature stuff was out. Within 2 minutes I had missed out on my first choices, but grabbed an Elite Z Luna & Buzz, a...

I think it's a case of being different rather than better or worse. Both models have their ridiculous outcomes, but the new physics is a little bit more disc golf-y to me. There have been minor...

I'm already seeing holes where the Light/Glide Ballista is a major advantage. It might even be worth close to one shot per round on average.

Also, I'm sold on the Acc/Glide Pure after a few...

Finally got the light glide Ballista, level 69. Had to blink a few times to make sure it was real. I look forward to being a bit more competitive now. Might even switch to the Acc/Glide Pure (from...

It's all going to be opinions, even if people use data, because we're measuring the data against our opinions.

A few questions about baskets that come to mind:

Wait, what? I had no idea this was a thing. I did figure out that letting the reticule drift left creates a flexier line with some anny, but I was always under the impression that the wobble was just...

This has probably been answered already, but do only pro tour rounds count for rating, or do multis count as well?

Tried one and loved how it felt in my hand, despite being beaded (which I don't generally like). Use it for shots I can't reach with the Zone, and forehands here and there. It's also very pretty....

Okay, granted that none of us look like the pros when we throw.

But sometimes I'll run up and bear down on a Wraith and feel like I'm James Conrad, or follow through on a midrange shot with my...
