Question about disc descriptions

Postby coogs » Tue Aug 29, 2006 10:49 am

When you go to a site like Innova's or Discraft's you're presented with the discs they offer and a description about what they're best used for (I'd imagine that's up for debate, but that's neither here nor there).

For example: "Great turnover or roller disc," etc.

When they offer these descriptions, are they assuming you're throwing with a flat release, hyzer release, what? I realize it's a nit-picky question, but I've always wondered.

they are insinuating you throw them with the style of throw you are attempting.

if you want to really know what discs are good for throw everything you can get your hands on and make comparisons to others with joes (blakes) flight chart

I assumed that's what it may have been and they were just trying to let you know what it was best for. Just needed the clarification of the fact. Thanks!

never a problem, keep in mind that alot of them arent true for everyone, like a beginner rolling an express may have some trouble ect.
