what discs finish with hard hard right skips more often? my FB gets more of a skip than the Surge I'm throwing but I can chuck the Surge much farther.


I used to throw skip thumbers like that all the time. I wasn't skipping off of water though. :lol: I did it with several types of discs though depending on the shot. Depending on how it hits, you can get an upside down slide that is mostly forwards, or any degree of skips off to the right. If I recall, the most important factor for it was the way it hit the ground, although the disc selection played a big role in that.

That round with the skip off the water was fun to watch as schwebby was up by like 10 with 9 holes to go so he just started dicking around. The hole before he threw a shot through a gap barely wider than a disc just to see if he could.

Oh and I had people telling me it was a 3rd run and others said CFR...but it does have patent numbers.
Patent numbers = CFR.
