Mike,
I had exactly what weebl posted a link to, and they are too tiny if you are a Big Man. Trust me.

Weebl, you're tall, not big! 175, thats fly-weight buddy! :wink:

I couldn't decide what characteristic you were refering to, so thats why i gave both so you could filter as needed. Get a Huk Lab one, and you could always add slightly smaller diameter (thicker walled) tubing and add in those nubbin's with drilled holes spaced out on the outer tubing. From what I hear they have a large sitting area and the leg extensions will make it so you can have it 5' high so you dont have to bend down to look in your bag.

tall skinny guys make good world champions from what I can tell.

:P

and, I did notice that the players on the lead cards at the skylands classic were all using the HukLab chair. Might be something to that...

I had the priviledge of meeting and golfing with Nate for two days recently.
He is a most gracious person, and an incredible disc golfer.

The sound the disc makes leaving his hand can only be compared to the displacement of air leaving a jet engine.
Absolutely phenomenal!

Nate is not so much a "big man", as he is a brick house. Truly an athlete at the top of his game. He will be a contender at the highest levels of DG for decades.

It's a joy to watch Nate throw any time. I'm lucky to have the 2005 World Champ's home course 35 minutes from me. I saw him up at a tourny in Lake Tahoe and he set the course record for Zephyr Cove, -12, for his first round. That course raped me, and had very extreme elevation change as well as thick schule (everywhere, even the fairways were covered in it) and trees everywhere. I heard him hitting a 90' upshot from 20' below basket elevation among other vicious chain outs.

For our 9 hole course, a chair isn't necessary. They turn the course into a21 hole course for tournaments, so if I decide to play another of these local tournaments, I may look into one.

However, it seems to me that it slows down the game. I'm not in the best of shaped but I made it through 2 21 hole rounds without a chair. Yes, it would be nice to sit while a card of 8 throw, but I did notice the lag in time that was created by everyone taking their chairs and neatly attaching them to their bags.

Still, I'm considering one for when I play more than 18 holes.
