i need some help

Postby blanch » Thu Nov 16, 2006 11:21 pm

I can throw my aviars about 325 feet but i can't really throw my drives much farther consistently. I keep turning over every disc i try to throw. Sometimes I can throw flat and far but most of the time it goes high then right and sometimes it will come back. Any tips would help me.

According to the Disc Golf Dictionary, one could define the acronymn "MBD" as a common misconception or misrepresentation by a player when referring to their throwing distance on a message board. :wink:

Although I agree, there seems to be a case of "MBD" going around, I dont find it hard to believe your reaching the same distances with a putter as a driver. In the beginning putters and mid-ranges are easier to throw than wide rimmed drivers.

My advice would be to pick up Roadrunner. If your past the point of learing to throw a driver with control, try a distance driver like a QJLS or TL. It has a smaller rim and more consistent flight than a Wraith or other high speed distance drivers.

Learn with a disc like that, then step it up to more wide rimmed drivers. If the wide rim is a must, try a Beast in any plastic. These are now being listed as the "First big D driver".

You might also like an Inferno, by Gateway. These go as far as any driver out, and honestly, get there with less effort.

my advice-give me all of your non-aviar discs and go buy more aviars. If you are throwing 325 accurately with a putter as a beginner then you should dominate intermediate level at tourneys and do ok in most advanced- as long as you can putt.
opulence, I has it.
