Beginners / Re: Forehand throwing disc suggestions
« on: October 29, 2011, 07:07:36 PM »
I haven't forgotten about this thread, I just haven't been disc golfing in the last two weeks because I've been busy at work.  I'm going to try and get outside tomorrow and take a few videos so I can get some tips.

I've been working on throwing normally, but I just don't have the distance yet that I want.

Until I can get some video, I will describe how each of my throws typically go with each disc.

valkyrie - Right hand, forehand throw.  Typically goes very straight or a little bit to the right.  Trails off to the left as it slows down.  Average of ~250-300 per throw.  Most of my throws end up to the left of the target.
avenger ss - Right hand, forehand throw. probably travels about 100' before it curves left.  ~175 total feet per throw.
crush - I throw this one right hand, backhand as my "approach" shot.  If I throw it forehand, it typically goes very straight (start to finish).  Probably get about ~150-200 feet.
Coyote - ? Haven't thrown in a while.
aviar - putter. 
rhyno - putter.

Thanks.

Thanks for the info.  I'll definitely give those discs a look.

Beginners / Forehand throwing disc suggestions
« on: October 08, 2011, 06:12:58 PM »
I'm really just starting to get into disc golf.  I played a bit in college w/ some friends, but hadn't played much since.

I'm looking to add a few disc to my currently pathetic collection, but I'd like a few suggestions.  I'm a right-handed forearm thrower.

Is there a certain type of disc that somebody might recommend for a forearm thrower (looking for a driver mostly).  Right now I'm using a Valkyrie for distance, but I'd like something a bit better.  I'm looking at the following: Destroyer (I've tried a friends a love it), Terminator, Nuke, Wraith and Force.

Are there any forearm throwers that have had better success with one type of disc over another?

I have yet to buy my own disc,  What I have is what has been given to me by friends.
valkyrie
avenger ss
crush
Coyote
aviar
rhyno

Thanks.

Found and Lost / Lost - Personalized Speed Demon said "Gattaca"

Lost my speed demon on hole 13 or so at Shawnee Mission.  It was tan w/ Gattaca across the front in blue letters.  Been missing about a year now.  Anybody?

if it was a light blue destroyer found at shawnee mission then it could be mine.  I lost mine a while back on like the 9th hole (into some trees).  I don't think I had my name on the back yet though ( as it was brand new) "Isringhausen".  So maybe just the weight # was on the back 174 (I think).
