Disc flight change from Minnesota to Arizona

Postby PeterM_Vang » Wed Jan 03, 2007 10:25 am

I'm planning on playing in The Memorial this year and was just wondering about the disc flight in Arizona compared to Minnesota. Blake mention once that disc angle for a certain shot can change in a different elevation and from region to region. Is there any big changes in disc angle or disc flight when trying to throw hyzers or anhyzers? Is it easier or harder to flip a disc there in Arizona compare to Minnesota? Will I even notice a difference and am I thinking too much about this?

Scottsdale's Elevation is 1340 ft.

St. Paul Minnisota 908 ft

the difference will not be huge, however discs fly more stable at higher elevation, and they also fly more stable w/ less humidity.
Your plastic will probably fly less stable but the difference should not be too noticable. You wont have to make any weight or mold changes to be able to throw there.

for the memorial, the change is negligable.

if you were playing in flagstaff it would be different.

Thanks. I'll try to stop thinking about new excuses to buy new plastic.

You can still buy new plastic. You're going to need back-ups for all your discs you donate to the fountain gods during your practice rounds.

Are those courses pretty tough with a lot of water in play?

Yes, Ive heard stories from the local pros around here about losing over 100$ of plastic during the first couple days of practice. . .

of course 100$ worth of the star plastic the guy throws would be 6 discs. . .
