Congratulations on the baby. Is it bad that when we had ours I was trying to figure out how early is to early to put a disc in his hand. Hes now Three and learning to throw a putter around the yard. I am looking forward to taking him with me.


I've had my girl out with me a lot already and she just turned three. At first, I'd just take her out there in the stroller, then got her out there walking with me, sort of, 2 year olds are pretty easily distracted. :lol: I had her out with me a few times this summer though and she did great. She would watch me drive, then try her own crazy flick shot and run off to find my disc. She liked slamming discs into the baskets as well like she was playing basketball or something. The last time I had her out was the greatest though as she was complementing me on every shot. "Great Shot daddy!" :mrgreen:

The key is to keep it short, if they start loosing interest switch to something else so that they don't start having a bad time playing disc golf. You want them to associate it with good times, not torture being dragged around the course.

What will be in my bag for sure the next year is:

VPs (no-brainer)
Comet (I love them)
Eagle (changed my whole game)

I just got a sweet ProTana from Tim, and ordered a StarTana, won't be able to throw them for a while. I got a xXx, and a striker that are waiting to be thrown as well. So the three above are not going anywhere, but there may be other changes.

Looking forward? He should already be asking for your towel so he can dry his favorite Roc.

My now three year old started discing at about 2 months, taking naps in the stroller while I played every afternoon.

Edit: We have issues in our house because my one-year-old fights with the three-year-old over minis.

I will keep Wraiths in my bag.

I don't have to pledge myself to keeping comets in my bag because that is a given.

I really wish I could pledge myself to keeping one putter... but I have a problem.

Still good on all 3. Not sure why I didn't have the Core listed as well, pretty committed to that one as well. In fact, I'm pretty happy with the whole bag at the moment:

Firebird
Vision
Surge SS
JLS
Drone
Core
Comet
Voodoo

I could see maybe swapping my JLS's out for my XL's again, but I think the JLS would win in the end.

I'll start by saying that at the very least, the Voodoo, Buzzz, and Stalker will be in my bag for the next year.


I'm going to add additional commitments to the Meteor, XXX, and the Boss. I like these discs and honestly with a kid on the way I'm not going to have the $$ to be messing around with a bunch of different stuff.


Well, the secondary pledge I'm breaking...I shouldn't have committed to the Boss. I never played really well with that disc. The Halo is better for me.

I'm not considering the Buzzz out, I'm just messing around with the Aftershock.

I pledge to keep Comets in my bag because I bought a bunch last year when the Z's came out and my Wife would skin me alive if I stopped throwing them after I spent all that money.

I pledge to keep Cyclones in the bag because I got a bunch this fall in ESP and my Wife would skin me alive if I stopped throwing them after I spent all that money.

I've had Banshees in my bag for the last 11 years. I'm not real happy with them and would like to experiment with something else, but after spending money on Z Comets and ESP Cyclones my Wife would throw all my shit out on the curb if I bought more discs. I'm pretty safe saying Banshees will be there for the next year.

I could keep going, but you get the picture. :P
Comets present and accounted for. Cyclones still in the mix. Banshees are gone, replaced with a combination of flat ESP Cyclones and Z Predators. Don't tell my Wife!

I kinda broke mine, took the Cheetah out briefly, but it's back in now. It was a very short break anyway since I never had a Cyclone really beat enough to do what I wanted.

I pledge to keep the following in my bag for at least a year:

Predator
Striker
Comet
Magic - out, replaced by challengers

Not like this is a stretch since it's the core of my bag (just changed to strikers after about 3 years of teebirds, won't be going out anytime soon)


Glad I'm not the only one who already changed something :lol:

Challengers and Buzzes have been in the bag for two years or almost...

Plan to continue doing it along with Eagles, OLFs, and Firebird as my commitment in 2010.

I think getting a Star Firebird and either Wasp or Aftershock will complete my bag. What do you think guys?

I have a hard time believing that anyone could throw a Z Aftershock and a Z Wasp back to back and like the Wasp better. The Aftershock is the same speed as a Buzzz and the Wasp is slower.

I can commit nearly my entire bag to no change for 1 year. The only thing I see in flux are my JLS vs. Cyclones. My Voodoos, QMS, Q-Sents, eagles, OLFs and xXx aren't going anywhere.
