Soooo that being said, i will brag up mvp/axiom rims for their durability. My have been criminally abused and still look and fly great!

They both were chuckers only carrying a few discs in their hands. He had a Ranger bag full of MVP. Even after nailing the tree he says "If I would have thrown an Innova disc, it would have bounced off the tree even further into the woods". I asked nicely if I could play through (I was playing by myself). They agreed, I threw my seasoned KC Roc about 30' short the pin. One of the two chuckers asked me what disc I threw. I smiled & said "A Roc, it's an midrange made by Innova". The MVP guy gave me a mean look. He didn't say one word while we played out the hole together. He kept that angry look the entire time I was with them. I played hole #2 by myself & played the rest of the round solo. I've never met a guy in person who threw all MVP before yesterday. It was a funny experience for me, to say the least.

B Position (380')
You could make a meme out of what that guy said.

Yea that sounds familiar. I often say that I cant throw a disc dead straight unless there is a tree directly in front of me.

I may be able to beat you on that, I hit trees every round I play, same exact holes and the exact trees.

Red face I am that noob

As I approach the first anniversary of my return to DG, having never missed a tree yet, my favorite saying is "I meant to do that", generally when I miss my intended line by 50 feet, bounce off a guardian tree, and land parked for an easy putt.

Just had this happen to me, playing with a group of friends the other night.

Me: Did you just throw a Destroyer on that 180' hole?

My Friend: Yea, but it's a 175 gram Destroyer.

That video is great - "it flies overstable...to understable...depending on the day..."


I fell out of a tree on the last hole of the tournament I played last weekend, which is definitely a noob way to finish out a tourney.
