Follow through is critical to not straining your back and, unfortunately, becomes less automatic when using a standing throw. The x-step creates momentum that gets partly converted into rotation of...

This applies less to wooded holes with tunnel shots, but there's a reason the pros love to do a high hyzer bomb with an overstable disc when the layout allows, and it has as much to do with accuracy...

I'm in my early 50s and have a bum ankle that sprains if I look at it crosseyed, so I don't mess around with a run-up. I do think it's important, however, to clarify what is meant by 'stand still' -...

One of the best pieces of advice I ever got that improved my drive was from one of Shusterick's videos he made eons ago where he advised not just reaching back, but making sure your non-throwing...

I learned flex shots because my first midrange was a Gator (5,2,0,4), so naturally it didn't want to turn at all. I started forcing it over anhyzer and discovered I was getting good results with it...

Your towel statement contradicts your previous statements. Holding the back end of a towel straight to whip it harder is the antithesis of a 'dynamic coil'. Also, I think you're on the wrong track...

If true, you'd think they'd strive more for consistency. Especially in a disc that is sold as 'floats in water' like the Wahoo. I ended up buying one of the rubbery ones because I like the feel.

Two Kinds of R-Pro?

Our local pro shop got in some Innova Wahoo discs, all in R-Pro plastic. Odd thing is, among those discs, the feel of the plastic is very different. A couple of them are downright rubbery, while...

Effect of Grip on Spin

At least a few of the improvements to my drive have come from just thinking about what actually happens physically at a given moment. Take grip. I use a fairly standard nose-down power grip, with the...

How would one get elevation changes short of hiring a surveyor? GPS is inaccurate enough horizontally, it must be really inaccurate about relatively small elevation changes.

No worries. I originally thought I'd be using Google Maps satellite images so I looked up their usage rules. In the end we had images purchased elsewhere so no issues with not citing the source.

I'll bet. The name of hole 18 will probably get a snicker or two as well. Another nearby course has holes with bird names. It's quite shocking the first time you approach the tee sign of the hole...

Designing Tee Signs - How Lucky Am I?

For me, the issue was grip. One thing that is often overlooked is that everyone's hands are different. In general, the longer the fingers, the easier it is to angle the fingers back under the rim,...

You misunderstand me, 22. First, for me, snap is a solid hit with clear feel of the disc "snapping" out of my grip instead of a loose release. When it happens right the disc ejects with more speed...

For me, on my drives anyway, how much snap I get out of my grip usually determines how much spin the disc has. To get a turnover or flex shot to not fight back and fade takes good snap/ spin. Some of...
