I also mentioned that I am 51 years old, and one of the posters recommended that I get some really light discs. Seems older players do have problems developing arm speed. I've ordered some, but also dug out a 162 gram Sidewinder, and found that I can throw it about 250', fairly straight, if I really concentrate on the throw.
So, I ordered a 125 gram Sidewinder, a 148 gram Latitude 64 Diamond, and a 155 gram Latitude 64 Pearl. Those were basically the lightest discs they had in understable discs that I felt I had a chance of being able to throw.
I would like some opinions on these choices, specifically the weights I've chosen.
mgilbert wrote:Thanks Mark. I do have a few Discraft discs. I've found that one good tree hit with the Pro D plastic pretty much ruins the disc, but I like the Titanium plastic. I just need lighter discs, until I get to where I can control them. I used to fly a lot - and I avoided the wind. I do the same thing with disc golf - too much wind, and I don't bother - so lighter discs will work fine for now. And I have watched many of your videos. Thanks for those!
mgilbert wrote:Mark, what I ran into with the Pro D plastic wasn't gouges, cuts, and scratches - I know those make a disc more understable. What I found is that the disc would warp, and you'd have to twist it to get it flat again! The other Discraft discs I have are made of the "better" plastics. Those don't warp.
