30 days same as cash.
Turbo Putt--disc held like a serving tray, rotating around the thumb in the middle of the disc, and pushed forward by one's index finger

Tree banger - a less then skilled player in the woods


aka Me.
scoobie is incorrect definition

yeah I thought scoobie was when a disc scoots up towards the basket almost like it is rocking back and forth.


Is Helix correct ? I thought a Helix is an overhand thumber throw that spirals in a circular or twisting motion as it travels forward.

You know like a roller coaster doing a twisty flip.

Like a Helix of a D.N.A. strand.

Rim- The part of the disc you grip.

Flite Plate/Wing- The top part of the disc

Flash- Excess material left on the edges of a disc during the molding process

Domey- The flight plate of the disc having a more pronounced buldge

Thumbtrac- The disc (usually putters) has a gripping surface or grove on the outer upper edge of the flight plate.


I have seen people throw the "scooby" and have it land upside down on its top plate. It doesn't always slide however. Maybe some people have a different term for this shot. I refer to it as a scooby.


A shank is well...    a shank.

Is a Scoobie the same grip as a Pan Shot ?

You should go to the Urban Dictionary site and look up both Scooby and Scoobie. There are some interesting definitions there although none of them are disc golf related.






It's kind of like in hacky sack when I call a certain move a clipper and someone else refers to the same thing as a burrito.
