If you could only use one disc...?

Postby stewbaccah » Tue Mar 06, 2012 9:22 am

The question is, if you could only bring one disc to the course to use for every single shot (drive, approach, putt) which disc would it be?

The motivation for the question is that I have seen a couple guys at the local course who combine disc golf and running by only throwing one disc and then running to the disc or to the next hole.

I'd like to start doing this a couple times a week and need some suggestions for the disc I should take with me. Yesterday, I tried a 173g Star Wedge. Not bad but I'd like to get more distance.

So what disc would you bring?

If I was doing the running thing I'd probably take a broken-in Roc.

Every time I've seen people do this they've been using putters (myself included). Though a Praxis has a certain appeal to it too...

I shot 43 at Loriella Park about 5 years ago using only a ProLine Gremlin. My record with a full bag o' discs = 47.

OP, do you get something for having a better round? Seems to me the emphasis is more on running, in which case the strategic disc selection is irrelevant, id say the brightest, easiest one to see so you wont lose it

Good point. The emphasis is on running but I think the less I'd have to stop and throw the better. The idea is also that it helps make running more interesting/enjoyable. I'm looking for a single disc that will still make for a decent round without having to tote my entire bag around.

If you drive putters, choose your stable putter-driver. Otherwise choose your straightest mid. For a longer or more open course where distance is more important a very straight fwy driver would be a good option for a little more D off the tee.

Personally I'd be using a soft Anode on about any course...except my main home course (cliff stephens). There I would use a seasoned SPD because there are so many shots that must carry over water and it is so open. Wind resistance and getting distance off the tee is more important than line shaping there.
