You missed most of my point. I know throwing a curveball isn't damaging...to an adult arm. If a ten year old tries to throw it, it can blow his arm out and he may never recover. Hence why Little league banned it.

Same thing with DG. A 10-13 year old kid just trying to muscle his Blizz Boss as hard as possible is an invitation for an injury.

Again if a kid is taught how to throw a curve ball correctly it doesn't put anyone stress on an arm then a regular fast ball. Which goes back to people needing to be educated about the sport of dg.

Absolutely agree with the bolded part. Like, 100 percent. I've tried a few times at local courses back in CO. I'll see a 280 foot hole and someone pulling out a Blizzard Boss. A lot of people don't want to learn...or they think I'm some weirdo creeper. either way, education is important.

Maybe Innova would be better off putting more effort into the EDGE program. They've had some success with it, of course, but it is fairly expensive for a school to invest in one of the EDGE packs for a fringe sport like disc golf. hopefully that attitude changes in the next few years.

Through all this talk, debate, and tangents the only thing that seems like the best possible option is for the PDGA to start promoting private courses and heavily.
