Effects of wind on flight path of various discs

Postby DiscSniper » Sat Oct 20, 2012 8:53 am

I would think that in some cases, heavier disks would be less affected by wind.

Myself, I struggle on long holes on windy days because my longest discs are all pretty lightweight and/or understable (to compliment my noodle arm and poor form). I was throwing a 165 or 150 dx Valk for my D driver. Since making a conscious effort to correct my form I've even pulled the Valkyries from my game bag. Fastest disc in my game bag now is a probably a River (love that thing, btw).

Overall max weight discs always for the wind including rear winds.
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.
