First disc I threw, while knowing what disc golf was; Innova DX Aviar.

I threw some discs around '06 or '08 but I have no idea what they were, and had no idea what disc golf was.

Im sure i posted in here before but i dont remember.

The first disc i threw was some type of dx innova. No memory of the mold.

First disc i owned was a Discraft XL i found wayyyyy up in a tree. The next disc was a "chains" aviar i found sitting on top of a basket.

Threw those 2 discs for several years before i found leagues and tournaments.

Not in 2002 in Minot, North Dakota.

It sure made me appreciate my DX Roc that I got a year later.

You should! It's a fun disc. Basically just a faster Gator. I could actually seeing it being a more useful disc in place of a Gator if you bag an OS putter like a Zone.

My soccer coach in highschool was an avid disc golfer and brought a stack of orcs and sidewinders to practice and had us throw them across the field and try to land in the goal. I had never heard of disc golf so I thought they were sharp frisbees. He showed me how to hold a sidearm because I said I couldnt back hand. Then I threw a champion sidewinder sidearm to within a foot of the goal post. Not bad ~275 for a first sidearm throw ever. I had never even seen someone throw a frisbee like that before.

DX Raven, beat as hell. After a couple rounds the guy who was teaching me loaned me his champ Valk - which was the first disc I ever lost
