Amazing results can come from experimenting with grips you never bothered to try.
Not all discs need to have super glide... In fact, discs with shit glide are nice for upshots.
Runups sacrifice some amount of accuracy. Been incorporating standstills and 1steps whenever possible.

It has several useful ingredients and sinks into the skin in a lot faster time than anything i've tried. Creams leave more residue to make the fingers slippery. Even duct tape comes off of a disc unless it is some expensive specialty tape. I have not gone to the high end 3M stuff. Criss crossing multiple layers of tape over the LED helps in maintaining it in place much longer and you have a visual means of checking when it starts to come loose. Some parts may come off and that is the time to add more tape or replace each piece. I'd use over an inch of extra tape beyond the LED system. Use a jacket with a hood for warmth and stopping the wind and beanie for warmth. Taking the hood down for drives and putts leaves you trouble free and the face acts as a wind speed and direction meter when the hood is down. And the hood of a wind proof jacket is nice for warmth in between. I try to throw with a bare hand and use gloves even though they are more clumsy than mitts to put on and take off. Unless it is really cold and then heavier mitts are great. So far i haven't been able to use my Hotronic FootWarmers to warm my hand in below freezing conditions because it is warmer than that. I'm sure it will make a difference. I use two water proof pouches and put polyester wool (pillow stuffing material) in it and the heater element with the battery being in between the pouches. In the 40s it gives me summer like skin temperature and grippyness. Not being cold is a prevention of the cracking of the skin so it is better than the cure of adding oils after the skin has cracked. Since it already has you're in for weeks of needing to moisturize the hand several times per day to heal as fast as possible. I've seen people wearing gloves with grease on the inside 24 hours a day for a few weeks.
Am i right in thinking you can't look for Crush type discs from other manufacturers? Or are unwilling to recommend non Discraft discs?
