No

Literally every single top player uses either the Accurate/Extra Glide Pure or the Accurate/Sticky Pure

You have to have confidence that you’ll make the 65-foot comebackers. Once you have that, you’ll run everything and your scores will improve dramatically

EDIT: Obviously you miss them once in a while, but layups are for basketball, amirite?

I’m not very good, but it’s fun. Trying to learn some of the good lines.

I use the extra glide/sticky Dagger. Should I swap to the extra glide/accurate Pure I have? I wish there was some way to "trade up" discs, since I've gotten most of them and have a few exact dupes. We should post what we bag, as that could help some of us I think. I really wish we could bag 8 or 9 discs, would really help to have a sticky putter and US FW/Mid.

I bag:
Extra Glide/Sticky Dagger
Extra Fade Anchor
Accurate Fuse
Extra Fade Explorer
Extra Glide/Accurate Explorer
Light Musket

I've been playing for about a week, maybe going on two weeks. I enjoy it. I'm a bit addicted.

My DGV bag:
Extra glide/sticky Dagger
Accurate/extra glide Pure
Accurate Fuse
River
Big skip Pioneer
Wind break/accurate Musket

There’s currently a glitch that allows more than six discs (supposedly to be fixed very soon), but you can play every hole with the six I’ll list here. You want these six for the rounds (multiplayer and pro tour) when you don’t know which holes are coming. If you’re playing the Open (where you can repeat the round with the same holes and wind), you can switch out to a specialty disc when needed

Accurate/Glide or Accurate/Sticky Pure - all top players have one or the other (probably 2/3 prefer the glide)
Accurate/Wind Break Fuse - see below
Accurate/Wind Break Explorer - that particular Fuse and Explorer are both in every top player’s bag
Accurate/Extra Glide or Accurate/Wind Break Musket
The last two that are in every top player’s bag you have to play for a while to get (playing multiplayer is the fastest way to level up):
Light/Big Skip Ballista and Light/Extra Glide Ballista - these two make almost all of the Par fours reachable with the right wind

Yes, it's affiliated in some way with Lat64. I suppose that's what keeps it free/ad-free (other than the product placement).

I play the 'advanced tournaments' to level up faster. You have to play 12 holes instead of the 9 in multiplayer, but you're guaranteed xp. As opposed to playing 6 multiplayer games and only scoring out on two of them because people will start and not finish. For the longest time at least this meant that my score (and rating) would just disappear after about 24 hours.

My biggest complaint though, besides the obvious spitouts and stupid ground physics that plague us all, is that I'm still listed as a 0 rated rec player even though I've played tons of rated rounds and the last three open tournaments. I saw on Reddit that this is happening to other people too.
