Throw whichever weight you can control the best. You will just have to throw some various weights (which it sounds like you have already done) to figure out what works for you.
Newer players who cannot generate the amount of speed that a top-level player can often find that the lighter discs work better for them, but that is not always true. Dr. Rick Voakes throws 150 class discs, and he is a world champion.
I am a new disc golfer (3 months) and i was lookin for some feedback on what weight i should throw. i bought some discs but i think i bought too heavy. i started throwing 2 #2 upshots that are 150 and 161 and i feel like i throw more consistent with the lighter discs. i have asked a few people about weight and got mixed opinions
Yes Charlie is an inspiration again. Please read the article about Charlie's inspiration to his nephew. He never ceases to amaze us all.
I liked Blackhawk. It was really hard but very cool. They combined it with several of the Redhawk holes and lengthened them. Also cool. I have only heard good things about the other two.
The Blade played them in Worlds a few years ago and had lots of praise for McClure and Dovillio, and so I am positive they will be cool.
Any "date rape" at either, CD? (ha ha. Disclaimer: I am not saying CD and date rape have anything in common. I misunderstood him once, and date rape was not really involved)
I actually don't think many people are even signed up for the tourney. I wonder who from KC will be going.
I have never entered a tourney before, but am planning on coming out on Sunday. Couple of questions:
1. What things must I have besides discs and money...do I have to have the little marker disc things?
2. Can spectators walk with the groups/are caddies allowed?
The mini is optional. But if you don't use a mini you cannot touch the disc that is your lie until after your next throw, essentially using the previously thrown disc as your marker. I recommend having a marker disc with you as it can help on difficult lies but you won't always need it.
Yes, as long as the caddy/spectator is courteous and mindful of the other players. If the caddy/spectator is disruptive they can be asked to leave. I personally have had to ask spectators to leave in the past for heckling and being a nuisance. What was Bill's last name anyway? RIP Bill.
Has anyone played this before and have insight to some of the courses? I played in the Spring Fling earlier this year, and we played Mohawk Judge Course (the Blackhawk-18holes and 9 holes of the Redhawk courses combined), but I've heard McClure and Dovillio are neat courses too.
Thanks for any info!
I have never played in an event before, but would be interested in the Mighty Mo. How long does a tournament take to play (I have a prior commitment at 2:00pm and am wondering if playing would even be feasible)? Also, what is the difference between the Rec and Novice divisions in tournaments?
I'd be inclined to join in on Sat May 31st if you were to play at Blue Valley instead of pushing it to after the WO. That might actually draw out a few more players wanting to take a look at the course prior to the WO.
Some Iowans that will be in town that weekend may be inclined to play as well.
The Cantankerous One is no longer giving us the finger. That much is good.
What trees came down at WW? Was one of them the one that was keeping everyone from playing safe on hole 12 when in the left pin position?
Put one on top the basket yesterday does count two or one?
