Default The Last 2 Years Revisited

Hey all! So I think this is the proper place for this thread, well a t least most of it. If not, that's my bad.

So, basically I was introduced to the sport in 2010. I was hooked instantly. I loved it. I got on here immediately and watched the world of disc golf evolve. However, I eventually got burnt out. Around the time when I graduated I just stopped following the game all together after slowly losing interest over the course of the previous few months. At that time I only had my hand on the pulse of the pro scene so to me Paul McBeth and Eric McCabe were one in the same. Also, Dynamic Discs only sold clothes and other companies discs and dies from an eBay shop. MVP only had the Ion, Anode and some mid-ranges. Maybe a fairway or two? My memory is hazy as I said I lost interest gradually.

When I came back to the sport I was re-addicted immediately. So naturally I went on over to good ol' DGCR and my brain proceeded to explode because too much disc golf knowledge was trying to cram its way into me brains!!!

.....so what I'm asking is if all of you can recommend me some discs to try out from some of the new companies or new molds that have been released since about that time. Also are there any things about these discs I need to know? (e.g. The two "types" of Amps or whateva.) I have an idea of some new discs to order but I want to see where you all think are good places to start...

tldr: I need some disc suggestions for someone who was basically living under a rock for the last 2 years.

Welcome back.

A couple questions for what to recommend: What are you currently throwing and how far are you getting them? Also, are you looking for replacements or compliments to your current discs?

Either way, one disc I recommend for everyone to try is the Axiom Envy. It's an excellent driving putter.

I've been impressed with all the Dynamic Disc offerings. I bag the Verdict, Truth and Suspect. They are also releasing 4 new molds this year.

MVP Tesla: OS workhorse driver
Axiom Envy: slightly OS driving putter I recommend the soft neutron
Axiom Crave: If you want a tbird like disc that's not actually a tbird

Thanks for the sig shoutout.

Honestly, there isn't much new out that isn't any better than what came before it. Don't break the bank with the "newest" stuff (sorry fanboys). Most of it is a take on better molds that came before them.

However, check out JCassidy and Reptilian Disc Golf. He has put out 2 extremely good throwing putters through a partnership with Gateway. They have been the only new releases that wowed me.

Legacy's Patriot and Gauge, Reptilian Disc Golf's Scale, Axiom's Insanity, MVP's Atom, and Prodigy's H1 would be good places to start.

Legacy Rival is a nice disc, as well....but the Patriot is the real deal.

I agree with this. If you have some discs that work well for you stick with them.

I would also recommend the Axiom Envy. Fantastic putter that has been taking shots away from my midrange.

I also have been loving the Thunderbird by Innova.
