Basically, this is the best disc golf video on the market. A great compilation of footage ranging from huge drives in the open to long finesse tunnel shots and a slew of incredible putts, this video has managed to gather what is probably the best footage available on film. Included in the video are three rounds of footage featuring the top cards and highlights from players on other cards as well as rounds of skins play by two groups of pro men and one group of pro women. The bonus footage includes a collection of top drives and putts (top 25 and top 100 of each), an ace throw off, bloopers, highlights from Cam Todd's course record round, bloopers (a very refreshing sight to those used to being in the rough more than on the fairway), awards, and "pool ball." The strongest points of the video are the collection of big throwing top pro players that haven't been featured much on previous disc golf videos and the "complete" footage of the majority of throws showing the player's full motion from start to finish and include full disc flight. With many of the holes cut through the woods, you also get to see many pros throwing difficult upshots, which is a rare find on most videos. Overall, the completeness of the footage makes this the best video available from an instructional standpoint. The downside of this video is the commentary. While it is loaded with a great deal of humor and witty comments, it at times comes through a little abrasive to the viewer. However, it is refreshing to find unbiased commentary that does not have a "good old boy" feel to it loaded with inside jokes of the disc golf scene which plagues many of the other disc golf videos on the market. I would say that if you are going to buy one disc golf video, it should be the '04 MSDGC DVD and I believe this video is the new benchmark by which all other videos will be measured and finally surpassing the 2000 Worlds VHS.
