How do people work in discs with no trees? I'm in North Carolina, out of all the courses I play, I don't think there's a single hole that I don't hit a tree at least 1/4 times.

Edit: my comets are nice and beat up

I have no idea. I have discs that I’ve had for years and played hundreds of rounds with that barely show a mark and fly the same as when they were new.

We have lots of rocks in the mountains and sidewalks, bridges, culverts and other crap to hit elsewhere.

I beat in a fresh fossil Gila between Kiss the Sky and Red Feather Lakes Open last year. Its my best flyer now.

Hmm. Guess maybe I’m just so good I never hit anything. My putters get a little beat from slamming chains though.







(Actually, I almost destroyed a disc in a single round at Bailey once. It had chunks missing from crashing into rocks.)

Bailey has some rough holes for sure. And without trips to the mountains theres really no way we are beating in plastic like you can playing big courses in the woods.

Amen. Any time someone recommends I beat something in or try to cycle something I can’t imagine how long that would take me.

Skip shots on gravel mixed with forehand rollers is my quick break in, even living in East Tennessee
