It won't work. Nobody who was naturally athletic played disc golf in the 90's.

So were the players of the 90s all bitches? Mind you i played in the 80s but not the 90s :D
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.

Serious post in unserious thread: We had a meeting with 50+ people in St. Louis in the late 90's discussing weather to pull Creve Coeur or not (park was not being mowed.) So everyone is yelling and talking over each other, nothing is getting done. I got everyone's attention, said this is pointless and asked people to raise their hands if they had ever belonged to another club or been involved with something where they attended meetings before. There was seven of us out of the 50ish people where were there. Since that angle wasn't going to work, I asked who had been on a sports team before. There were exactly three of us. Those guys were not joiners. They were not jocks. Their experience of finding disc golf was much, much different from mine. For most of them, disc golf was the ONLY sport they had played with any seriousness in their lives. If they were not playing disc golf, the only "sport" most of them would have participated in was throwing darts at the bar. We were not a hotbed of athletic ability by any stretch of the imagination. The athleticism of the guys I play with now is A LOT higher than those guys. Just one small sample, but that has been my experience.

BTW, the only reason Creve Coeur survived that meeting was becasue we couldn't get people to stop yelling over each other long enough to take a vote and 1/3 of the people stormed out in protest when we tried. I was by far the worst, most pointless meeting I ever attended.

yeah those TP Cyclones in used bins used to tear my wallet up. I don't have many left now between breaking them losing them or selling them off. They've even discontinued the ESP Cyclone. C'est la vie.

but back to 90's DG; I was watching the 93 and 99 worlds vids on youtube. Makes me wish I had started back then.

I think Dave Dunnipace of Innova wanted stop it at 11 IIRC. It may have been 12 but even the experts knew there would eventually be diminishing returns on disc rim width. I've lately been trying to embrace the faster stuff. I don't have consistency with them but that doesn't mean others don't. It's still good to be familiar with all the tools available.

back to 90's style. Here is a video of Paul McBeth and Kyle Sawtelle doing a 90's challenge:

i throw the faster stuff as well. I was just thinking about how differently we attacked course back when a cheetah and cyclone were considered fast discs. I believe the game was more artistic then where now it is a power game. Watching mcbeast throw the nova at worlds and the line he threw took me back.
