That was also one of my best throws ever. It felt damn perfect. Most of the time, pds were in the 400-420 range

How far are to talking when you say they crush? I can't get any of my PDs out past 380' or so...


Don't know if you are familiar with hole 10 at Ewing Park(645 ft slightly downhill and hardly ever birdied) or not...but the other day there was a 10mph front left to back right wind and I threw my crispy new stiff p-pd at it. It flipped up to flat held a gentle turn and then settle to the ground flat about pin high.
If the object of disc golf were to hit trees, I'd be 1100 rated.

that qualifies as a pretty huge crush! I'm hoping to make the challenge again this year (whether I play advanced or intermediate is yet to be determined lol)

Flat stiff 159 DGR P PDs were great in the break in period as a primary driver for 4-6 months and then they got slipping and not coming back. They were the longest PDs i've thrown 390' tops usually 380'.

dgdave how much farther do you throw with a full reach back? I think you've lost a little weight.
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.

That is a full reach back. That video was about 3 years ago and I was in the best shape I had been in since high school. I lost about 60 lbs that year

You can reach back even farther by turning the back and the heels at the target upon the landing of the x and the plant step.

I don't really want to change anything. It'll just screw up all my timing which is way more important

He already has all the distance he needs, if the form is giving him good accuracy I wouldn't change it either.

Do you guys find Discmania stuff locally or is there a lot of ordering just based on reviews? I ask because all I can see/feel locally(within 2 hours) here is Discraft, Innova and a small amount of Millennium.

Anywhere that has Innova should be able to carry Discmania too... Its up to the dealer, but last I saw they were both on the same order forms. Everywhere around here that carries Innova carries Discmania as well, including the Innova warehouse :P
