And Mike, If you disagree with my suggestions, I would love to hear some of yours. I'm sure there are a lot of people who would love to hear some advice from you about how to play? You've been playing a long, long time right? Certainly you have information you can share which would be helpful to others...
I dont have a long list of credentials like yourself. So I dont offer up a bunch of unsolicited help.

don't you usually just throw Rocs from 500 and in, Mike?

Yep.  ;)
 I just thought I could use some pointers from the"self proclaimed authority" on dgolf.  How much was he charging an hr?
 Who were some if his students? I'd like to get some reviews from them.
 Its between him and Don G lover.. ::)

A couple things that might help you make the transition to the lighter weight...

1. The first throw you make with it, and maybe the first ten throws, should be standing still and with half speed. Get used to the weight and the flight before you start walking into the throw and using your full power.

2. To make sure you're throwing it correctly, first take your regular driver and throw it LEFT handed (for you lefties, I'm sorry, there is nothing that can be done for you. You're evil and that's that.) Throw leftie for a few holes and pay attention to what you're doing in your technique. This should help you slow down and use proper technique RIGHT handed.

3. This is not a TORQUE disc. You can use torque, but you have to be really comfortable with "low, hyzer" releases to do so. Until then, you have to under-power the throw.

4. If you are having issues with "flipping" try releasing the disc with your two middle fingers in the power grip and NOT the "pinch" of the forefinger and thumb. This should keep the spin down until you get the low-hyzer flip technique under control.

5. If your drive is coming out HIGH RIGHT. You're trying to kill it. Slow down.

I hope this helps. If you need further assistance, I would be glad to come work with you.

 Maybe you can give me some pointers.... bahahahahahahahaha.

Sounds like someone is giving up disc golf? Or they are stolen?

 Which is it????
I played with Juan last week @ wyco. Stuffs not stolen..

Some people just like to purge their disc golf equipment from time to time, right, Mike? ;D
heh heh!

So whose name is on the trophy this year? ::)

No Mike, the only way the bad karma goes with the discs is if I would have told you about it. Which I've just now done. Dammit, I'm so sorry... :D

The only bad karma is the're laying In
 the yard rotting. I don't throw any off that stuff.


Glover, don't worry about what the **** I be doing. They are still making discs, bags, and baskets every day. That equipment was giving me bad karma vibes so it had to go. Stay tuned and maybe you can be the recipient of the next purge.
haha, there weren't any of those in the package anyway....
