Does anyone else play this fine sport?

I played a ton in high school and college, but fell out of it after friends moved after graduation. Moved close to a course and have been getting back into it and having a great time

I play a ton. Which course did you move near? There's a very active DG scene in Raleigh and the surrounding area. Tons of courses around. Check out CADL and Bull City Disc Club on facebook if you're local.

I play a lot and I don't even smoke weed while doing it

Worked up to some pretty solid distance over the course of a couple of years. I think my best throw on udisc is 380 ft in a field, but that was definitely an ideal condition and not the norm.

Kentwood haha. I played summer doubles some this summer, but hope to be much more active next year. I grew up playing Cedar Hills, but I try to play as many courses as I can in the area/state. Zeb is one of my favorites.

That's about where I'm at right now. I go up to Combs Elementary or the baseball field at Cedar Hills to practice. I've gotten the most distance from my newer, 167ish gram Mamba and Tern.

If anyone ever wants to play Kentwood or wherver, pm me

Yup, my biggest throws were with a g-star Mamba. You just get so much turn out of it. A nice flat release or slight hyzer and it just rips. When I throw more overstable discs, they just turn so fast. Even if I force them over, I don't get anywhere near the distance, maybe like 300 or a little more consistently.

I like going to Dorothea Dix to throw. Plenty of fields there and hardly anyone in your way. Bonus points if you can take down a drone.

yeah I agree. I just don't have the power/spin to get stable/overstable discs to fly like they're supposed to. How people use destroyers for their main driver just blows my mind. It pretty much has to have -2 understability for me to get it to fly properly.

^Most people throw too heavy of a disc. Step down to the low 160g range and you'll be much better off.

I usually stay in the 163-167 range. I keep a few heavier ones in my bag for headwind conditions.

Do y'all like the Champion Blizard discs? The air pockets in them allow wider wing molds to achieve weights in the high 130s to low 140s.

I dont throw them, simply because they're a bit too understable to get a FULL flight on most of our NC courses. Also, I only throw MVP/Axiom. BUT - I've owned some blizzard drivers and liked them. Had a blizzard Destroyer than flew stupid far. But hardly ever found a hole with enough open width down the fairway to let it get a full flex.
