Default Ultimate

Anyone out there play ultimate as well as disc golf? I am going to my first pickup game on Monday to try it out. I have never thrown an ultimate disc but have experience with regular whamo type discs and midnight flyers.

I live in Michigan and the winters kill the disc golf game, so my thought is to take up indoor ultimate once the snow flies.

Just looking for any feedback around the game or experiences to be good fast and not mess up the dg game.

To be good fast be very althetic, quick, and run endlessly. Short passes that don't turn it over are always best.

You will have a disc throwing adjustment but just throw the lid light on a hyzer and you'll be all right....oh and fan grip. I wouldn't even think about a power grip.

Yeah the short passes are what I have in mind at first. I don't know if they'll be able to handle my nasty forehand lol.
All I know is it looks cool and will be a great way to keep the throwing arm up to speed during the winter months. Grand Rapids michigan cleared 120" of snow last winter and it put the kibosh on playing dg a lot. It feels like I spend the first two months every spring just getting back to where I was the year before.

I've been playing my whole life and love it. Although I'm not impressed with the new low-risk style of Ultimate (short, safe passes, handlers, the stack, designed plays, zone D). I personally think Ultimate is much more fun when it is just man on man D, big crazy hucks, hammers, everyone has an equal chance to throw, etc.

I look at it like soccer. You need a foundation to bust out of for the big play. Im sure you've played a bunch more than me, but particularly when starting out in fast paced sports, it's good to learn a rhythm before going for a bomb every time.

I got into Disc Golf because I played Ultimate. Totally different world. Ultimate is exercise, but fun as hell....I enjoy it a lot. Very different than DG. but sweet

I learned that this game existed from an old Atari game in the '80's. I have never seen it. It doesn't exist on the west coast as far as I know. I know more serious rugby players. To that point, Lacrosse doesn't exist here either. It's like like trying to find professional field hockey players......

Nah it's hard to drink beer and play ultimate at the same time.
