Default Before there were flight charts

Before there were flight charts, Innova had a table that retailers and clubs had to help players find just the right disc. This table is dated 1991. I thought this bit of Disc Golf history was interesting.

I bet if I looked, I still have one of those laying around somewhere. Either that one or its predecessor.

Back then, if it wasn't a putter, it was a driver. Things were much simpler, too. Lordy...now I sound like my dad.
