Default Hmmmm. What would mine say?

Don't think there is one thing my mini would say about me. I think collectively it would say that I might have a mini problem. (but I know some guys that have way more than I have)



I have personally designed and had over 10 different Little Flyers minis in the past and I have a variety of minis from a few different manufacturers. I throw Innova Mini Drivers and Zing Aerofoils mostly and putt with the Little Flyers. I am anxiously awaiting my first hot stamp order from Zing. I should hopefully see them any day now.

Throwing minis is a blast. I would suggest you try it shine day. I am fortune enough to have 7 mini courses here in my area but you can go to your local regular course and throw to those cages. We do that here also. We just add a point to the regular course par and go from there. We just play that if we hit chains and falls into the basket it counts. They do not need to stay in the basket.

Hey CenterShock, how far can you throw a mini?
Actually playing with them is something I keep thinking about, but not doing much of.
We have 5 of the plastic mini baskets, but they don't get used much lately.

I'm not sure I've noticed what mini anyone else was using, except the time a friend flubbed an upshot and put his treasured Buzzz in the pond, and in anger spiked his metal mini, only to have it bounce and roll into the pond, too. Hard to ignore, or forget.
Yep, that was me....guilty as charged.....but I did reach down(almost up to my neck) and grab the mini. The buzz I did get back, about a year or so later.

Sure do! The one thing about mini courses is the guys come up with some interesting and different targets to throw at. You are not throwing at baskets all the time on some courses. There are ground targets (like ball golf), there are trees with rotted out centers as targets, there are even holes cut into buildings that are targets. One trip here and you will see a bunch of interesting holes. Pretty sure all of the courses are listed here on the DGCR. Let me know if you plan on coming around and I will meet up with you and show you around if I am available.

I am getting about 250 to 270 feet as my max distance using one of the weighted Innova drivers. I am just starting to throw the Zing plastic and the potential for longer distance is there. Some day I would love to hit 300 feet.

People from Texas think alike! It's always the minis fault.

It sucks when I run through all of my minis and I still can't make a putt though lol.

I rotate between several minis, but mainly 4 of them

Spitfire mini with Indianapolis Colts logo - to annoy all the Saints fans I live around
Metal Mini with tourney logo - 1st place trophy mini
Normal mini with tourney logo - Logo of a tournament I TD'd
Early 90's mini - maybe the first mini I ever got as a kid.

Wtf how? ^^ Normal backhand with powergrip?

I saw a clip on youtube where Greg Hosfeld has a sort of snipping technique, but I think that was more freestyle than distance.
