Interesting. I've been throwing almost exclusively forehand since February. I generally play 18 - 36 holes a week and I do fieldwork on average once per week. I can't throw all my discs with the...

Have you seen this Brian Earhardt video? Sounds like maybe you're trying to throw your drivers just like your slower, less stable discs, which might be contributing to what seems like a late...

I've been trying to help out a couple of my friends with this. They both would like better forehands, and they both use the serve-the-pizza grip with the finger pads on the flight plate. I'm trying...

When I play a round, all I think about are release angles and keeping the swing nice and easy, no strongarming. I try to use the fieldwork to drill in everything else. It's too hard to work on form...

Overthrow just did a nice form breakdown with Andrew Marwede that shows this really well. Marwede is someone who I think has a great forehand and uses a form that is fairly easily replicated by us...

I use the same grip as Gannon and came to it through experimentation. I definitely started seeing improvements in consistency and distance when I started turning my finger pads in toward the rim...

Picked up my first Valk in Maui a couple of weeks ago. I believe it's Star. It has a store stamp, so hard to tell, but it feels like Star to me. It did have some flashing that I had to sand off. ...

Watch the videos frame-by-frame, especially that second video of Stokely driving. To say his drive foot is diagonal is being generous. Pause the video at 2:29. That's about as sideways to the...

First things I would play with are the grip and the plastic type of the discs that you throw. I'm forehand dominant, particularly for driving. My golf distance on a clean drive is around 350'. I...

I actually think quite a bit of his sidearm advice is very good, just not that one point.

Sounds like you're definitely working around some issues I don't have. If you're stuck in the 3/4 arm...

Very good point. That advice only works for someone who has experience throwing a baseball. So it sounds like in the clinic he does clarify it the way I suggested. I just don't think you can get...

I definitely picked up a bunch of distance by adjusting my grip so that I was pressing almost directly into the rim with my fingers instead of 50/50 spread across the rim and flight plate.

That's still one of the big things about the 'Stokely Method' that I disagree with. He talks about ignoring the fact that you're throwing a disc and pretend like you're throwing a baseball sidearm. ...

I tried map scoring for the first time today. I didn't really enjoy that. It just seemed to be a distraction. I think I prefer to just to score only after completing the hole. Maybe save the full...

I wondered that about the basket locations. I have one course I play a lot that always seems to have at least a couple of basket locations that don't match the UDisc setup.

Which UDisc Scoring Method do you use most?

Just curious about what everyone uses.

Do you ignore scoring completely and just go out and enjoy the round?

Do you stick with scores only? This is what I typically use because it's the...
