Wow, that's not what I wanted to hear, hahaha. That sucks!

The correct strategy is to buy way too many discs, try them out and see how far they go, then sell 90% of them on the marketplace so other people can do the same thing.

Alternatively, you can keep them in boxes in your basement, for the day that you decide to give that Krait/Quasar/Corvette/QuarterK a try again (probably never).

Then you’ll have it all figured out.

HAHAHAHA, I guess that is one way to go about it, haha. And where would I be selling all these extra discs I have? On eBay or is there a used disc sellers page here? Thanks

Facebook marketplace nowadays, though the marketplace on DGCR used to be booming with activity. Hell, DGR used to have a somewhat lively marketplace as well. Sellers market at this point, it's easier to get what you want when it's more of a public bidding war than niche forum posts.

Yeah there really are no rules for how discs fly, just kinda arbitrary numbers. However, the system vaguely makes sense. High speed numbers need to be thrown harder but go farther.

For the ball golf analogy, putters = wedges (but you can still drive with then), mids = irons (but some acheive fairway distance), fairways = woods ( but can be good for a controlled drive or specific shot shape), drivers = drivers duh (but some people use them for upshots due to the consistency of under powering a fast disc)

Don’t forget that in the end you’ll end up throwing Wizard/Aviar, Buzzz/Roc, or Teebird/TB clone for 80%+ of your shots anyway.

I take it you don't use Wizards? Because a glidey putter they are not.

I don't know, man. Been putting with them for years. Not a brick like a Pig or Rhyno, but definitely not a glidey putter. That's why I use them, man.

I mean, Infinite has Wizards with a 3 glide, Flight analyzer gives them a 2. Not sure where that 5 glide came from.
