I started carrying all Discraft in my bag with the exception of one Gateway Element. I did so because I found that, like ball golf, transitions between discs are easier if the rims and plastics feel similar (Ball golf- there is a solid reason for having matched irons (I know, I was a 1.2 HDCP)). I'm not knocking on Innova or anybody else but Discraft plastic just seems more consistent disc to disc.

So here's some free sucking up from a guy who broke par for the first time after drinking your kool-aid!

I'm an old guy (49) who started playing a couple of months ago...)

I started by using Innova, it's the only kind available up here in Mt. Pleasant, MI (which sucks, because we are like an hour north of the factory) But through trades and dealings, I finally have some cool disccraft and other discs to try.

Have you tried going to blue in the face? I thought they had a large supply of discraft there
Don't be afraid. I had that "round" after my first round was solid. Tell yourself on each hole that you will throw the drive that leaves you the best shot at par. You'll surprise yourself a few times and make Birdie and the safe but not timid approach will mean much less chance that you'll have the DFL round.

Yeah, but do you admire a guy who 4 putts pretty much every hole on the back 9??? It would have been funny if it hadn't held up my foursome!

I fixed that putting glitch (you absolutely must understand the wind...first open course for me and I was surprised) and realized later that I was overthrowing every drive and getting less distance.

Live and learn

50 in 2010. And I seriously need more distance first. I was 5th after the first round of my first tournament on the wooded course...hit the windy, open course and blew up like a cheap balloon!
Not sure how this ended up in lost and found but would somebody move it to where it belongs, PLEASE!
Yo Mark,

MUAH!

I played in a Twisted Flyer tourney called "Roc vs. Buzzz". It was interesting to learn that Innova uses all kinds of recycled plastic for their discs and Discraft uses new plastic. The tourney was played one round with a Star Roc and one round with an ESP Buzzz. Needless to say the Buzzz one by many strokes overall. Discraft probably makes more consistently true discs, although I can throw my CE Roc better than any Buzzz out there.
Yeah Eric, I go there too see what they have, but they are way over priced (typical headshop). They do have some nice things though !

JON!!!

Innova is NOT the only brand available in Mt. Pleasant. There is a shop downtown just north of The Bird on Main called Blue in the Face. They carry a decent selection of Discraft as well as Innova. Get there now! :)

The ESP Buzzz is my go-to short hole driver. It's truly a marvel to watch fly

Oh man is the buzzz ever fun to watch fly. I love it. It is the best disc ever made. Oh yeah he's watching. I mean the rattler is the best disc ever made ;)

Depends on where you live I suppose.
i totally carry a mix bag, my favorite driver is my quarter k II and valkyre champion, my favorite mid range is my buzz pro d and wasp. i dont think its so much the manufacture but the shot you have to take into consideration
