Learn to throw putters and mids because they will show any flaw in your form. To often players will “turn” a disc over not even realizing that their form is forcing the disc on a anhyzer to begin with. This is because they start with the fast discs rather than learning how to control the flight of their putters and mids. Especially if your new to the game you will enjoy disc golf more throwing a mid and/or a putter.

Favorite discs

BT Hard Burst Shield

“The Shields are very consistent and feel great in the hand.”

Compass opto

“They will hold the line you put them on and are great for accuracy in the woods.”

Opto Explorer

“I have been amazed by this disc since I received them.”

Opto Ballista Pro

“They are exactly what I have been looking for in a max distance driver. Goes a mile but still has enough stability where I know it will fade.”
