that's cool to see you had a similar path as mine. Luckily my shoulder I blew out is my left shoulder and I'm right handed. My right knee is fake and my left shoulder is mostly wire and and few screws. If your hobby is racing bicycles then Its not a matter of if its just a matter of time when you're going to wreck. BMX as kid then was still racing a little bit on the road scene but mostly cross country mountain biking up until I was 36-37. I was still riding for shop up till my knee replacement. Just like anything, you do it enough you get better at it so I got really good at knowing how to wreck and not get hurt. but you can only get away with so many before one gets you, after breaking my left collar bone 2-3 times my shoulder was gone. Destroying to rotator cuff every time I broke it. Just like in disc golf, trees do not move. lol It doesn't matter how nice you are to them or how much you help their survival by cutting down honeysuckle or kudzu. Trees do not care and love knocking down discs and riders off their bikes. lol They take pleasure in it, I'm convinced they do. Im back to riding again, nothing crazy but just need to get some fitness and flexibility back in my life. It can only help on the golf course. matter of fact I'm still working but want to get outside and practice some forehand upshots before it gets dark outside!

Is there a quick way to "break in" the nylon belt so that it will lay flat?
It sounds like you have it on backwards.

Got a Grip 6 belt in the player's pack at the St. Louis Open this past weekend. I thought that was a really good idea for a player's pack item. My guess is that not many disc golfers are probably spending a whole lot on belts. And for the ones that do, then this will be a nice addition to any collection.

I am a big fan of these things for sure. I was a little bit skeptical of the price, but after getting the belt in a player's pack, I could see myself paying full price for one, or even purchasing one as a gift.

I must be one of very few who dislike this belt. I get it. I know how it works. A regular type buckle just seems better to me. meh.

What is the general opinion on the 1.1 inch vs 1.5 inch?

Anybody have both band sizes?

Anyone tried these with a paddle holster? So far, the only fabric belt I have found to work are the firefighter belts.

I had some of my trusted female and young customers check their belt loops and none of them required the smaller size, so I didn't order any.

i have the 1.5 and I want the 1.1. If you're got any kind of belly on you the 1.5 requires loosening just about everytime you sit down.

With bad hips I kind of like the adjustment for sitting down vs standing.

I was skeptical about these belts, but I was gifted a really sharp looking one with trees cut into the buckle about a month ago. (Grip 6 Uinta - Gunmetal)

Consider me a convert. Slimmer profile, lighter weight, no extra flap hanging over, and it stays put. Put on a couple pounds/lose a couple pounds, no biggie.

I just bought 2 more using their 20% off "2 pack builder" and lumped on another 15% off with a discount code. 2 bombproof belts for under $50 plus the parts are all interchangeable.

I work in the construction industry and even though we're "business casual" here at the office it leans more towards casual so these belts are perfect for my day to day. Other than my formal suit belts I don't see myself wearing a typical leather belt much at all anymore.
