I do not think the PDGA or TDs will be able to help you here. The problem seems to be that there simply aren't many old farts like us playing competitive disc golf. I'm 63 and I enjoy playing disc...

I've given up using a bag except on those rare occasions when I play a course with a high potential for losing a disc. In 2016, I used three discs: Star Sidewinder, KC Roc and a glow KC Aviar. For...

I'm 62 and my advice for geezer golf is to ditch the bag and just carry 3-4 discs in your hand. My choice would be a BB Aviar, Roc, Eagle and a Valkyrie. All in DX. But pick out the discs that...

I hear you DiscFifty. It's not easy to have fun when you are playing bad. That's why it's a tip for playing better. Last time you were playing poorly, was it easy to stay loose? Did you start...

Absolutely legal.

I once had a tree puncture a DX Valkyrie two holes into a tournament. At the time I was playing with only four discs and my card was courteous enough to allow me to run back...

I could roll with this choice. For a few years I used only four discs: Valkyrie, Eagle-X, Roc, BB Aviar - all in DX.

I gave up carrying a bag of discs about five years ago and started playing...

I guess I'm confused. If your lie is two feet from the OB line and you want to throw from about 1.5 feet from OB, isn't that a half foot from the original lie? Why bother to relocate? You're...

Easiest thing might be to just slap a peace sign sticker on whatever mini you like. Stickers are OK on minis.

So this is just my opinion of course; but for a beginner, you have plenty of discs. I'd even suggest you drop the Mamba for awhile, but it doesn't really matter all that much.

You might try a DX Wraith in a lighter weight. Personally, I think of a Valkyrie as a slower Wraith. YMMV

Here's a thought... I've heard they have a competition to see who can throw a disc the farthest. Do these distance competitors use light discs or heavy discs?
