    Old Farts Only 40+ (no kids allowed)

    Wonderful! I'll reserve that for when I crush it 280' straight down the middle.

    I do like the sound of "nonarrivedrive". It made me think that the word predestination might be appropriate for when we stare at the one place we absolutely don't want the disc to go but then, inevitably, throw it right there.

    Those are excellent suggestions. A stroll if it finds the fairway, a wander if it finds the rough, and a stumble should it find the first tree or the ground within 100' of the tee pad.

    The term "drive" no longer seems appropriate for what I'm doing from the teepad. It's better defined as the lay up that precedes my lengthy approach shot which leads to my circle two putt which leads to my tap in bogey. I need a new term that's more than four letters long.🤬

    Old man question: exercise vs rest

    It's a conundrum for which I do not have an answer. I've been playing this game with my right knee for two years now. Thankfully, I'm now very close to being pain free. You can't know what your limitations are without testing them.

    [Drivers] Are Speed 7 Discs Necessary?

    Sheep, these rants of yours come across as both condescending and desperate for validation as a disc golf guru.

    [Drivers] Are Speed 7 Discs Necessary?

    I began my own 7 speed experiment this spring, and my results are all positive. For context, I'm 62 and recovering from an injury. I took the entire winter off to rehab and improve my leg and core strength, and any drive over 300' feet is now a long throw for me. I've ABd my 7s against nine and...

    2025 Champions Cup in Stockton?

    The big loser regarding scheduling is the West Coast; it is an after thought so why not Stockton. The DGPT wants to go to Europe and the West Coast is what is being sacrificed. Texas and Florida will continue to dominate the offseason/preseason due to weather. The Texas courses don't do it for...

    Help me get new hyzer crush drivers

    In the spray and pray, shock and awe category I recommend the Clash Wild Honey in Steady plastic. The Underworld has been my favorite understable fairway driver for years with the Maul being a close second, but I recently tried a Mint Discs Jackalope and it is spectacular as well. It slowly...

    Multiple Forms Extravaganza

    It's all very clear to me now, thank you.

    Multiple Forms Extravaganza

    Brychanus, balance is imaginary? What you're trying to say eludes me. Many great throwers have a wider stance: Kuoksa, AB, Albert Tamm. Most of us can't achieve this because our lower body strength is inadequate. The brace, IMO, is when your center of gravity is behind and directed into your...

    Jaani, Josh, I really enjoy your videos and the spirit in which the information is presented. Thanks for commenting.

    Breaking in discs

    Reading your responses has reminded me of my own bias. I've always hated the hard plastics. My experiences are primarily with the softer premium plastics. They do seem more durable to me now than they were in the past.

    Breaking in discs

    Is breaking in and cycling discs becoming a thing of the past? The quality of plastics have improved dramatically in the past few years, and this seems true for all the major manufacturers. Additionally, the manufacturers and the buying public seem to be favoring these more durable and more...

    It would be logical to assume that, but I bet this disc junky adds more of everything else to compensate. The promise of new plastic is irresistable.
