Yup you just got a dud than. It happens, I've seen quite a few discs come out of the box flippy for some reason. Give it to a noob and move on.

I can put thundies to around 350 and don't get any turn out of premium plastic ones that are max weight. You probably just got a dud (or a bomber...

Career Wins tab on PDGA Player Statistics

Just an FYI, there is now a Career Wins tab under Player Statistics on the PDGA website.

I think it's a cool feature. Some of the pros probably have an impressive collection.

If you aren't throwing those discs 350ft or more, than it's a form issue. But to answer your question: max, xcal, and ape could all work.

How far are you throwing RHFH?

That helps after I throw, but you being able to clearly see an OB line in the distance and me not knowing where the OB line is gives you an advantage.

Obviously Paul is skipping "Idle"wild because there is nothing "idle" about him. The man is full send Friday, even on a Monday.

Will was a hot commodity before I got into disc golf. Was he playing the week after his "injury"?

Injury in quotes because I don't know what happened with him.

He played in a tournament the week after he hurt his shoulder so I wouldn't worry too much about him. He's also young and can bounce back fast.

Sure, they could have charged $40 a disc and probably sold out, but that isn't the right way to do it. They should make enough that they can sell them at retail value and not run out immediately.

It's mind blowing that companies will make things in such a limited number that they sell out immediately. Why wouldn't you double the amount you make, and double your profit?
