I don't know how how to measure spin, but it is easy to detect higher spin rates on throws of equal speed based on the relative results. High spin tends to stabilize the flight pattern. This does not...

I play with one or two discs a lot. Sidearm vs backhand, all rollers, three or four concurrent one disc rounds (this week I played Spirit vs. Roc vs. Putt'r vs. Inertia). The last time I was near...

The existence of those golf-style rangefinders slipped my mind. Are they accurate and precise? I'm accustomed to using Leica distos or similar for building and geological surveying, but it seems I'm...

I imagine good form to mean efficient, optimal use of the body. Of course that will change when the body breaks down. Until then, most all of us have the physical equipment needed to throw a disc far...

A wheel is plenty good enough for general disc golf use. I'm faster and more accurate with paces than with a wheel though. They are simply not useful for precision, especially in a natural setting. ...
