Good stuff in the last page or two lol.

The person claiming that difficult things are actually easy is usually putting himself in a tough spot no matter the subject. There's the occasional Tristan...

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...

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...

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...

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....

I've noticed that Discraft seconds/x-outs are bizarrely difficult to find. I know their factory store sells some, but there still seems to be a lack of them where I would expect them on sites that...

From the partners I've played with in pick-up rounds, and granted that's over less than a year of playing, I think most people with decent form are regularly in the 270-300' range (like me). If we're...

What players do you sometimes "feel" like?

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...

Finally hit my first albatross, on that Crow's Nest hyzer hole #3(?). Getting used to firing lower in the chains, but still having too many weird spit-outs on putts.

To solve the ridiculous spit-out issue I've started throwing everything low into the chains, which seems to work a lot better but causes more cage hits. This is after having spit-outs on soft putts...

My putting performance varies so much from round to round that I feel no reason to introduce a new variable. My form matters so much more than my choice of putter. Not to speak out of turn, because...

Am I hallucinating, or do ALL putts/throw-ins lift on the windy course? Even those with a tailwind seem to rocket up high.

Since switching from the Compass to the Fuse, I'm making way more aces and throw-ins. Nothing wrong with the Compass, it's a birdie machine, but the Fuse is an eagle machine imo. More accurate and...

So far of all the terms I've seen used itt, "Practice Ace" hits the mark best. It tells you everything you need to know.

Having never aced, even I know that it's the first throw that is 100% a pure ace for its aceness. Any other "ace" is dramatically less pure even if it can be called an ace by some other standard.

This is for sure the way to go, especially if one is "accurate." The Fuse is really, really straight and throw-ins from 150 and in are always a threat if you read the wind/elevation well. At least on...

I've had some DOOZIES in Grizzly Gulch. Trapped under an outcropping in the water, literal no place to throw. I've taken a 20, and let's leave it at that, lol.
