I wish a lot of the people debating it here could read that information (I think the forum is 404 still) and I think it would help people understand the theory better. I always get involved in these discussions simply because I think it's a method that can work for a lot of people - not *everyone*, but someone surely out there could benefit from it.

**more accurate information and comments/opinions**
To toot my own horn, timg IS hosting DGR now. All of the instructional articles from the main DGR page can be found at https://www.dgcoursereview.com/dgr/ while the forums are all archived here: https://www.dgcoursereview.com/dgr/forums/

Any of the newer players reading this should invest hours reading "informational articles" and the like on the sidebar of my first link as well as digging through the forums in the second. DGR was more 400 level than DGCR ever was.

Those old DGR threads are absolutely excellent. I remember, when I started throwing, spending hours pouring through advice on building simple bags, throwing with clean form (was more important with older molds/baseline plastic), cycling, and JLSs (which mold taught me SO much about working angles).

Alright, I am breaking down this season (again) and starting a roc cycle. I am going to be a little more casual about it, and will be using comets as a stopgap.

I figure I'll start like this:

171g ESP comet - squirrely goodness when leaned on
174g KC Roc - seasoned with a good 1g hunk out of the rim. Flies like a dream.
171g DX Roc - 10/10

When that DX starts to work in, I will throw a 171-174g new KC roc in and get to work. If I lose something that I can't replace off the shelf, a fresh DX roc will be thrown in at the top of the cycle and the slot will be temporarily filled by a comet of some kind.

Seems simple enough, there's no way I'll get frustrated this time, right? Right?

I used to have a much simpler bag. Had only 11 molds. But I switched mids and now I can’t cycle. Matrixes will eventually break in but gyro is stubborn to cycle so it’ll take a while or MVP making an electron matrix which with the release of electron vectors I believe has to be close.

So this quote:

Stopped reading and immediately thought about how passionate Blake is about disc minimalism. I like the idea of looking at discs as a craftsmans tools. I'm not sure how much of a craftsman I am, but the quote seemed appropriate.
Damn....

Timg is the man. I remember some phone convos with BlakeT years ago and how he was slowly burning out. Took a while for me to adjust to DGCR (what a bunch of holligans back then) but this page has become even more than DGR could have. Now we have DGR here (news to me) and the circle is complete.

I learned so much back then that I have now used when teaching people locally. People joke about it but once I can get them actually putting some of those old principles (like cycling) to work they understand too.

The way this thread ended up was pretty cool IMO, see I've not been playing that long and the reason I came here was to learn from people who have been in the game for a minute. I'm at an age where sensible things well, they make sense so these "old school" principles and knowledge, well yeah it gives with me. Thanks guys for all the help.

I learned from players that played in 1998 and they had only baseline for the discs, I remeber That one uncle even in 2000's he cycled his Driving putters DX Rhyno's one was stable other was under. He used the old Pro Ryhno a very close disc to the R-Pro now if you get the R-Pro the way it was supposed to be made rubbery but not floppy. I also learned about cycling from another uncle who like to cycle his midrange, the Cobra's having 3 in the bag and learned from him and a brother that if the tool a low profile putter that flies on the path you want, uncle a Magnet use a midrange disc, him a Spider for putting; brother wanted a overtable low profile putter, so at the time he used a beat in DX Gator. Now he will try the 173 gram DX Stud I got him and should be a better disc for putting, his old DX Gator is near the end where one hard putt could render the disc unusable. Also he wanted a new disc to try for a putter.
