When I think of James Conrad, a Roc doesn't immediately come to mind. Sure, he listed four mids in his 2020 ITB. But the tour coverage I've seen of him he rarely throws mids. Aviars, Teebirds,...

Playing unlimited recreation under the guise that your “old lady doesn’t dictate” your life is a pretty immature perspective to take. Love means putting the other person’s needs above your own, so my...

Long, slow rounds spent with people you would rather not be around for that long. That is also my reason for not playing sanctioned rounds the past couple years. We finally agreed on something!

Apparently I don't try enough new discs. I just perused the PDGA disc list, and these are the only molds that I've tried with an approval date of 2018 or later:

2020 - none.

Hatchets are what you seek. Throw about a dozen rollers with one, and that tick of extra stability goes away. I always have a Hatchet in the bag as my understable bookend. And I actually will bag...

I almost snapped my peroneal tendon playing some rec league basketball in college. I "luckily" only broke a bone that connects to the tendon, which was a much easier recovery.

I'd make sure to go for a premium plastic if you want an Envy exclusively for throwing. I've bagged Electron Envies too, but IMO they lack that Envy Gyro Magic and are a much less unique putter. A...

Anybody unhappy with their VIP-X Stags? I still have "non buyer's" remorse. Really wish I had pulled the trigger when they were available.
