presidio hills (nice handle by the way, I'd like to live there in my next life),
That brings up something I've been wondering about. I've seen lots of people on boards and at my home course spending lots of time talking about right turning discs.
Advocating understable discs for newer players is one thing, but I don't get what semi-experienced players are doing if they need to throw this shot more than once a round.
I'm still new to this disc golf thing, but I don't really get it. I mean a tomahawk with a putter will go right at whatever one throws it. A roc with nose slightly down, or a shark with nose down will also go right. I mean sometimes there are specific lines that you want to hit and really want the right disc for that line. And that's not even bringing up sidearm angles.
I guess a lot of my energy on this subject is coming from my local course, where the local innova rep who sells discs out of his rig constantly seems to suggest the wrong discs. He's got a 930 rating, so he's better than I am at this point, but that's mostly with rollers, good putting, and really good driving with a Rhyno. But I'm becoming more amazed at how little he understands about some aspects of disc flight. And he is kind of the gatekeeper where I live, so most people in our area will get to know him fairly early on in their process. Nice guy, enthusiastic, responsible for our new course, but I guess I expected a much more neutral approach to disc selection.
Perhaps one of the reasons that I'm responding to you, is that you seem to be able to throw a lot of different ways, like me. And you have mentioned that you like using a beat pro starfire, which I also love.
Got an opinon on this? It'll probably be a few months before life lets me start going to tourneys to talk to a wider range of folks.
