Juggling Stuff:

(twelve days of christmas melody on)

FIVE GOOOLLDD RINGS!

Three stage balls

Two peacock feathers

and a juggling book by Dave Finnigan

(twelve days of christmas melody off)


I read about half the book in the past two days and practiced with the balls and tried balancing the feathers. Was too windy to try the rings. Now I've got to wrap them up and put em under the tree for tommorrow.

what do you need? You've got a roc and a putter, right?

LOL - Did you want any dg stuff for Christmas?

:)

Merry Christmas, Blake (and all).

Quick question...you (Blake) and many others recommend flippy discs or the old dx plastic to use, but when do you know when to retire them?

When they stand up too quickly as rollers.

roadkill hit it right on :)

actually, i dig having a disc that will stand up fast and bank hard right as a roller (use it for 90 degree right turns)... so for me it's when they crack (usually 2-4 years after they stand up too quick to roll straight).

ok, but then, how do you know when it's your form standing them up as rollers or the discs are too floppy? I've got some that stand up as rollers now, when I'm not off axis torquing... Are we talking when you throw them for distance they roll over or when you throw them at all?

I've got a beast that'll probably go over 200' but under 300' nicely, but if you shoot for 300' it rolls over.

Also, what do you do with old plastic? I don't believe there's is any recycling place is there? Should be though...

I give them to my little brothers or beginners. Flippy plastic is good to learn on.

Edit: It is rarely flippy to them.

well, assuming you are TRYING to throw a roller (there's only a handful of discs that can even approach them when you aren't trying), you'll get the feel for what type of standup speed you want/that exists with some practice and repetition.

you can roll anything, just not every disc will do every specific type of roller.

unless a disc is seriously thrashed or seriously understable, you shouldn't be having it roll unintentionally without torque.

e.g. a maximizer and optimizer are the only discs that will roll for most players from a flat throw without torque.

if you roll say, a brand new dx archangel (from a flat throw consistently), it is usually due to off-axis torque unless you have 430+ power.

on a side note, i have zero discs of my main throwing molds that is too understable to not have a use.

if you find a disc that is too understable and outside of the molds you throw, yes, newbies are a good way to build disc karma.
