Do it! You will be amazed at your score. I played with only a midrange (QMS) and putter (Omega SS) and scored what I normally do. I didn't have the opportunities for a 2 like I do normally, but I didn't get into any trouble either.


Yep, and then I sit in the parking lot scratching my head wondering why I normally carry so many discs. It's why I bought a nutsack. All I can carry is 6 in that thing. Shoot just fine. Now if I could just convince myself that's all I need in tournaments....

I'm actually looking to finally commit to playing with 3 discs for an extended period of time. Normally when I try this I wind up sticking with it for 2 rounds tops. I'm going Aviar, Roc, Leopard... And I'm gonna stay with that for a while. Just committed to this today...

I would say Dx Valk and Dx Tbird:
Previous worldrecord, 250meters, Christian Sandstrom (Valk)
247meters, Ken Jarvis (I think it was a T-bird, not 100% though)
(disc-) gracefully yours, PDGA# 3418

Are there any Valk-like discs from manufacturers other than Innova?

Pask do you have any video of you throwing?

Keltik, how did the short bag go?

Gateway Assasin and some Westside Northmen. Actually many Norhtmen are Valk like because Valks vary a lot so pick a Norhtman and chances are it is close to some kind of Valk.
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.

Discs are like a disease. I carry 25 normally and struggle to try and carry 15-20. I dont mind the weight I always think what if this shot comes up. I would say I normally only throw 10-12 discs a round though. I could probably score about the same playing 5-6.

Are orcs wide rimmed? Domey 169ish champ orcs go a long way but my farthest flying disc that isn't a destroyer is a 171 SOLF.

This is what I'm finding too. I've tried a lot of the suggestions here, none of which are getting out past my lighter solfs.

I had a long Pro Orc. It's at the bottom of a bayou. If I could get them locally, I'd have another. I've since moved on to Destroyers for those duties.

What ever is your favorite midrange, try playing for a season with only it. You will learn a LOT.

Yeah, I need to do that too. I played for a long time with just a driver and a putter, then a driver, putter and mid, now I got a bag of about 15 discs that I carry . Most of them I don't throw at all.

I could easily get away with three discs. As someone else mentioned, when they played with just a few discs their score didn't go up. You don't get the chance for as many birdies, but you will play more consistently.

It's easy to get caught up in the specialised disc idea. However, it's pretty much a silly idea. I do use them , but don't need them. Currently, if I am at a 200'ish hole with a curve to the right, I will throw my Leopard RHBH with some good snap and it just anhyzers towards the right. I used to just throw my Teebird or TL RHFH less than full power and get the same result, if not better.

All the specialty discs are nice, but I sometimes think I am hurting my game. Too much stuff to remember. This disc flies like this, this one like that, don't overpower this one, etc etc.

The old adage still applies. I need to implement it a bit more .

I pulled a 162 champ viking out the other day and was crushing it put several throws out over 400' (which is a big drive for this old arm). Gateway apche flies out a long ways.
