sorry, but you're being really rude to a brand new player asking for legit advice, after 2 rounds of playing. that kind of attitude has no place on this board.

I apologize my rude words. Couldn't say it more nicely because of my bad english...

Really, didn't mean to be rude and def didn't want to scare a new player away from this great forum. It just sounded funny. I'm maxing out @350-375 with a Valk and I don't feel I'm mastering the disc (seeing young guns tossing the Valk over the 400" line with ease). Then again, I'm an old fart with lower back problems and a knee injury. I'm happy to be able to play.

Mastering was a bad choice of words.

mastering was a shit choice of words, and if that's victorb's true opinion on the matter, he needs to go wash the sand out of her vagina. That kind of attitude has no place on this board.

Nice. This topic might be soon be flaming without any relevance to the original question. Let's stop it before it starts. Perkele!

Dude why? Yeah it was a poor choice of words. I'm trying to get help here and I'm asking fair questions. That kind of crappy attitude is going to drive people away from this fun sport.

Although you may have trouble finding one locally, the MVP Anode is a great straight flying putter. They are on the fast end of the putter spectrum, and sometimes will even get out as far as my midranges if I give them enough height. Better yet, they are indestructible and should last you for years. The Latitude 64 Fuse in Opto plastic is a midrange I would recommend as a great starting disc. It is my absolute favorite disc for tight fairways. My form is very clean, so I can throw them over 300' without turning, but I can also control them to do just about anything except take a hard left. That's a disc that is similar to the Comet. With good form you can really do a lot with it.

Good luck man. I started out a lot like you. I got throwing 350' with my drivers fairly fast, but then hit a plateau for a long time until I started on the forums and getting some good advice.
