Good find.

I like Michael's style, there is a video of him tearing it up with comets that is just sweet to watch.

I'd say the title must go to WIll Schustricks fairway ace from the dropzone in that new trailer video done by lcgm8.

At 0:50.

Can't beat a DZ ace for best comeback after a crappy drive ^^

True, though it's just one good shot vs three :P

Yeah but the quality... Over quantity. Ideally you don't want more than one come back throw to muddy up your score card :-)
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

i have no problem pointing out america's many, many faults. you think americans could make a decent disc golf video. instead i get dr. john g. duesler, jr sending me emails everyday so i can watch the shitty 09 worlds dvd and the leni riefenstahl inspired "honor above all" on loop. i was at the finals of the 09 worlds and there were cameras everywhere and how they ended up with what they did is mind blowing.

i did weep a little during the part in "honor above all" when nikko talks about how he prepares for a tournament. thinking about all the water he drinks was emotional.

these do not include nikko talking about drinking water but you can feel the leni riefenstahl inspiration, especially in the second one.

There are Americans that are absolutely getting up to speed in their video making and it is great for all of us. Helping and inspiring others to make great videos is gonna help the sport grow and make it more enjoyable to the players and spectators. It is nice to see great videos in the long Finnish winter and thankfully each year the videos get better. I'm glad that Japan is producing videos too and the video maker community adds more nations annually. Win win situation for everyone you can't travel everywhere so it is nice to see vids from other countries. So a shout goes out to the UK to Chris and friends welcome to the video boom in disc golf.

IIRC lcgm8 has used US made music as well but mostly Finnish.
