Slims Rule 48: Practice the putt consistently in from 30' (10 meter circle).
Throw all your discs, heavy, light, soft, sharp. See how they come off your hand. Remark on how the wind and sun affects the flight. Try it from all sides, up/down/cross wind . Pick the color you like best.
When you are facing the wind it is best to fire it directly at the basket with a lot of spin. With wind to your back you can loft it, that is throw it high and soft so it almost comes down near at a high angle. If you are crosswind you have to adapt much like the treefrogs on #13, but generally throw it like a calm day.
Try this a few thousand times. Then put them on an imaginary wire for the meat of the basket. When you are 10'-15' out focus in and go Slim rule 49 for the 3rd chain down from the top. After awhile you will trust the disc that trusts you. and if you like the color.
There is a painted 10 meter circle at Swope #8 for your putting convenience.
PS Swope was just mowed.
