Backhand is the only legal throw.

Groove tops are illegal.

Spoken like a pure backhander who is incapable of flicking, thumbing, rolling, etc, etc.

The Innova Groove should be illegal, however.

You can absolutely throw it again. Now, do you have time to retrieve it and still throw in the time allowed? Usually not, so most of the time you can't practically throw it again.

I played a tourney at Cabin Creek several years ago where that was a rule on one specific OB, because the OB was someone else's property. TD had made an agreement with the other property owner that one person would retrieve all the discs thrown OB just once after each round, so that people weren't constantly walking into their yard... which is completely understandable.

But that's a property ownership issue, rather than a PDGA rule.

I believed this one so much I had my doubles partner keep a couple of backups he may need that were actually mine in his bag because I didn't think I could let him use them if I was carrying them.
And its corollary, You can't add discs to your bag during the round.

Depends on where the OB is, and how far OB you went. In many cases, particularly on the side of the fairway, you have to get to your disc to determine whether it's OB, or to estimate where it was last inbounds. At that point, you can carry it back to your lie just as easily as getting to your lie without it.

In many other cases, of course, you're absolutely right.
