I'm only about 1/3rd of the way through GINAGOP but there are definitely some things I've recognized from it already. Things I've done in competition before like; stick to one disc you're throwing well that day even if it's suboptimal for the hole, visualizing lines and not thinking during the actual throwing action, stop throwing discs that I don't trust, focusing on a single part of the basket for aiming during putting.

I just have to make sure to make them a consistent part of my approach.

I find that is the hardest part. It can be easy to fall back to old habits, especially as pressure ratchets up. Enjoy the rest of the read.

I don't get yips or lack of confidence on the tee, so I think my thinking in that regard will be easier to fix.

I do get incredibly nervous putting 15-25 feet. Past 25 I view it as a bonus if I make it so I have no expectations of myself. But that range where I feel like I should make all of them gets to me.

Quick 27 at Spilman hopping on with some people.
Funnily enough I shot -4 through 9 on the extra 10-18 I threw, then -4 through a whole round, pretty windy.
What I actually threw
400 F2
Moonshine Trident
S Line FD3
400 MX-3
ESP Comet
(700, 350G) PA4s
SP Breaker
2x350G PA3s

Played some doubs at Rockland
Some new things I'm gonna try out in the bag;
DD again. Still tinkering with the OS control driver slot. This is a true 11 speed but very stable and stands up to the wind great, where starfires don't always like headwinds. I dunno why I like how the DD and PD2 fit in the hand but detest the PD... Thunderbirds are ok but I can't get them significantly farther than an F1
SuperSonic! 125 grams or so and an absolute blast to throw.

I would bag a supersonic if I could. I throw one about 50 times a day for Annie.

Have you tried an FX-2 yet? It is like a more overstable thunderbird. I don't throw hard enough to use it properly but I think people who throw hard are going to love it.

I haven't tried one yet, I was always underwhelmed by the Thundy's glide I think. I'm pretty much open for anything to try in that slot. Basically a nice driver that isn't a max speed rim for shots up to ~400 straight to hyzer that I never have to worry about in the wind.

Supersonic is fantastic, can't wait to throw it on darkside

Ratings update bumped me +6 to 939, gonna be harder to keep beating my rating, really gonna need to put in the work moving forward. Sadly it looks like quite a few things will be cancelled because of COVID and if they don't I probably need to skip out on them anyway to protect my folks.

Found an old Z Pred of mine, gonna try that out in the speed 9 control slot as well. Flies amazing, not too OS.

Sherando should be weekend after this, but it will probably be cancelled/I will have to back out.

Tried an FX-2. Holy guacamole the bottom of that disc is sharp, definitely overstable as well.

4 MX-3

Cryztal Comet
2x PA4

Another round at Rockland Sunday. Got my act together on 15 and 16 and went 4, 3. But took 4,4,5 on holes 3-4-5 which was a bad look. Shot another 60.
Forgot a trident sat so I put one in, that was the only change beside losing that one flippy f2
