I just started playing discgolf three weeks ago and have been really happy to have found this site. The information provided by Blake and others is amazing and I feel I have already learned tons, though I still have even more left to learn. The articles on this site about grip, snap, throw mechanics and so on have been really good, even though a lot of the dg jargon can be confusing at first.
The equipment I have gotten to start of with is something that I got as a packade deal at the local club. http://www.valbyparken.dk
It consists of a D cyclone (173-174), a D Hawk (170-172) and a D soft Magnet (173-174)
So far I have mainly used the the cyclone and magnet as my range has been low and I wanted to get as much range as possible, the last days has seen more use of the hawk though.
Today I started on the first week assignment because it seems as a task that fits nicely into where I am on the disc golf learning curve.
I only used one type of disc today, that being the D cyclone (173-174)
I managed to get the first three flightcurves down, the turnover was causing me some trouble though I havent quite figured out how to keep it turning and not turn back. (into an S) I assume lower height or more Snap/spin is needed?
Im considering stopping doing the X-step for a while, since when I do it, I mostly launch the disc at too high of an angle. I was somewhat satisfied that my straight shots with a slight fade at the very end, where ending up in the same place. (Within 12-24 feet of each other)
I have hit one of the plateau's as well it seems my drives go out to about 210 to 230 feet. I think I put snap on the disc, but as far as I understand a stable/understable disc should turn left if thrown with lots of snap?
Well thats it for now, if you guys are interested I would be happy to keep posting on my entry into the world that is Disc Golf, and Ill be posting more questions for sure in time.
