See ya on the fairway,hit chains.
I agree. Inking is important. When I first started, I feel in love with my "Nuke", and of course I inked the important information upon it. Then one day I lost it deep in the bush of the Debary Course. I mourned and moved on with another "Nuke" in a better Plastic.
Long Story short. I got a call from Bob at the Barnett Course stating that my disk was found and if I wanted to come pick it up. I laughed, cause where it was found was about an hour drive from where I lost it and it was seven months after I lost it. Ya ya I know. Someone found it in Debary after I lost it, kept it, used it, and lost it in another course where someone else who has proper ediquete turned it in.
My hopes for you is that you enjoy the game and that if you ever lose a disc, that the person who finds it will be kind enough to return it.

Get yourself a Teebird, Buzzz, and a putter. Learn to throw the Buzzz where you want it. Everything after that is gravy!
I started my son out a few months ago with a Teebird, OLS, XL, Buzzz, Comet, and some SS Wizards. He can now throw the Teebird and XL right at 320’ and the Buzz and Comet around 275’.
