    Review by Smithcok in course Simonds Park

    3.00 star(s) Upgrades on the way! - Convenient location. For anyone living in the greater Boston area, any other course is going to be 35 minutes or more away. This course is easily accessible off of 95, is free, and has ample parking (plus the snack bar is open if you are lucky) - Good variety of holes...

    Simonds Park - Burlington MA people

    Thanks - I got in contact. I know its not the biggest/greatest course in the country, but it seems like no one plays it. I've been there most everyday this week at varying times. The park itself has been completely packed (with the sports courts, skate park, swingsets), but I've always been...

    Simonds Park - Burlington MA people

    Howdy I just moved to the area permanently (did grad school here, but am from Ohio) for a job. My work is on the same street as the course, like a mile away, so I plan to play at Simonds almost everyday. I am looking for people in the area not only to play with but also to do some volunteer...

    footwear for Disc Golf ?

    Wow - just played a round this afternoon at Roscoe Ewing Park (Medina, OH) and these shoes are amazing. Super comfy, never came untied, and the goretex is fantastic. Bounced off a tree into the shallows of one of the creeks and I walked right through the water and my feet were completely dry...

    footwear for Disc Golf ?

    Bought a pair of Merrell MOAB GoreTex today. Expensive - but if they are as good as they are supposed to be, they should be a good pair. I'm going to play a few rounds tomorrow and I'll report back. The GoreTex should be awesome. I am in OH now, but am moving back to MA in 2 weeks - lots of...

    Something between Stalker and Predator?

    Yeah some of my friends throw Innova, some throw Gateway. For some reason, I just really like the feel of the discraft discs, especially the rims. Has anyone thrown a Nuke? For someone with my arm speed/distance (just under 300), would that be something to try? The stability rating seems...

    Something between Stalker and Predator?

    Wow! Hah, went to bed - never expected this many responses - thanks. So yeah, I'm a fairly new player (6 months). I throw my stalker farther than my predator (I'm sure the predator takes more speed to really shine, but I feel consistent with its curve and that's why I like it). Average drives...

    Something between Stalker and Predator?

    I am looking for a suggestion on what driver to buy that will be between a Stalker and a Predator in terms of stability. (I have nothing against other companies, but I have always stuck with discraft, so a discraft disc recommendation would be appreciated). In the mid-range line, I like that I...

    Review by Smithcok in course Devens - The Hill

    3.00 star(s) Nice wooded course Great use of terrain (trees!) and elevation (especially back 9). Not a super long course, but will require a lot of accurate shorter drives and midrange shots. Ample parking, variety of holes, and plenty of trees to keep fairways tight. For people that like a good hike...

    Review by Smithcok in course Muldoon Park - Old Layout

    2.50 star(s) Good Intro Course Front 9 is especially good for beginners. Back 9 is harder, comparatively speaking. Back 9 has some tight fairways and requires well placed shots (10,11, etc). Definitely a course where will you will get the chance to throw a lot of midrange discs. (Front 9 is great...

    Review by Smithcok in course Belmont Park

    3.50 star(s) Nice course - but crowded This course is a great change of scenery for players that are used to courses with tight, tree-lined fairways. Most holes are wide open in a field with a few trees in the way. Nice changes in elevation (some holes are down, some are up, some are thrown over a big...

    Prime disc rocks

    Well, I ordered from PrimeDiscs.com on Wednesday. (I'm in Massachusetts, and their previous shipping from NH was suuuuuper fast). I got the stuff today (48 hours later) from Texas with the same 3$ shipping. Hopefully that's a good sign that only the location has changed, not the quality of...

    Post your most recent plastic purchase.

    Decided to let curiosity get the best of me... and I bought an Epic. It seems people either love it or hate it, so rather than forming my own opinion off of hearsay, I thought I'd put it to the test (and primediscs has it for like 10$ right now) Of course, you can't just order one disc... so I...

    Post Photos of Your Disc Golf Bag

    I'm a grad student at UMass Lowell (in my last semester). So far, I've just played at Pelham (Muldoon Park), Devens (my favorite... but harder!), and the one in Burlington. Thanks, and yeah I feel pretty good about my discs. LOTS of forum reading etc. before I took the plunge on them. I have...

    Post Photos of Your Disc Golf Bag

    post #1 Phew here goes. Post #1. Just started disc golf in December (currently in MA - yes it was cold+snowy) Immediately fell in love with the game. I started with a simple discraft starter set and added a Stalker driver. (I started playing Discraft because other people who got me started...
