Both following are from before I joined the forum. Perhaps it was over on DGR where someone broke down the difference between an X step and a scissor step. Some of my info came from tutorial videos; much harder to search for those.


Like I said, forum speak.

From what I can tell, several of the terms we use came from Blake over on DGR. Someone had to make up the terms; as far as I know, no one has gotten a divine disc golf lexicon from a burning bush.

There are terms people on forum invent to attempt to better communicate their ideas and then there are terms that professionals and the wider disc golf community uses. They may or may not be invented by forums, but to be honest I think a lot of it can be attributed to Dave Dunipace.

Others are attributed to players like Tom Monroe and Scott Stokely with the videos they did in the mid to late 1990's on disc golf, the Stable term I believe came from Scott where the disc holds a line. It just it took a long time for the term Stable to mean that and not Stable as in a OS disc as some players not from where the game started in early years these pockets were saying Disc is stable for term of an OS disc well into the 2000's as places like DGR and DGCR were not a thing yet until the mid 2000's to help codify terms to what they are now. Terms are even more codified now with the advent of the tournaments on YouTube and elsewhere in the 2010's with pros using the terms as the commentators. Only Term I hate that the YouTube tournament announcers made was The comebacker, I like The comeback, that is what I heard people say and South Dakota people born here or have lived in South Dakota a long time sometimes use pert near.
