Keller, that was the kind of insight I was looking for.

BTW - Taking the distance drivers out of my bag has made my last couple rounds more enjoyable. I guess I had unrealistic expectations of those discs. Besides my Escape goes just as far. Now I can focus on the game within my reach, which isn't too shabby compared to the other locals in my age range.

Since the thread kinda went this direction, in what way has a cart changed your game?. I'm 60 with a bad back and carry a light bag because of it. Before I dropped a lot of discs I considered a cart but in many ways it seems more hassle than it might be worth.

I have a bad back as well. Not carrying a bag makes all the difference in the world. I was a cart naysayer until a few years ago when we held an event on a golf course and played out of golf carts all day. At the end of the day I was nowhere near as sore as I expected to be based on having thrown pretty much full power over and over all day. That was when i realized carrying the bag was contributing more to my being sore than the actual throwing.

When I'm not using my cart I use a 12 disc shoulder bag and carry a three legged stool. I always put my bag on my stool while I'm throwing and if I'm not sitting on the stool. A lot less bending over helps me thru a round also.

To the bending over point I would also add that I only ever use a mini if I absolutely have to. There is no sense bending over to mark a disc for every throw just to gain a couple inches.

^^^ This.

To the more general discussion of a cart: I definitely get it that a cart would do a lot to help my back with bending over, etc. But if your course has a lot of uphill, some fairly steep, is that a negative for the cart, having to pull it up the hill?

Going uphill sometimes with a cart isn't a terrible deal.
It's a good tradeoff considering how many times per round you physically lift your bag off the ground.

That said, some courses are really not cart friendly.
