The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf
Given your distance with the TB I might consider going with some faster discs. Speed 9-10 range. I'd suggest the Valkryie, Orc, SL or Beast. If you want to branch out into other companies, the Flash or Striker would be good choices
In my opinion, it would be silly not to try other discs. The first disc I threw over 350' is a Champion Orc. It is technique and it is discs that get distance. If you can throw a Teebird 300' you can work with a faster disc well enough to work on turnover distance etc. AND faster discs go farther. It's just physics. For me, on a fairway, I seem to throw a Force just as far as I throw a Nuke. But if I was trying for distance, in the open, the physics of air on a Nuke rim allow it to go farther than do the physics on a Force.
By the way, I won't forget to contact you for a round when I come to play the DOZEN courses within 10 miles from you. Shady Oaks and Sunrise are on my wish list.
For other questions and concerns - there is also a CHAT function on this website and usually an insightful golfer will inform you.
You only need to throw wide rimmed drivers if you want to compete with players throwing farther than you.
A 300' controlled drive is a beautiful thing unless the hole plays 350' and everyone else on your card parks it. Then that 300' drive just cost you a stroke to the field.
I had to learn a Nuke to keep up with everyone else who throws it. A Nuke is harder to control. So what. It goes 50' farther than anything else in my bag. Cold weather already cuts down on distance so you have to do what you have to do.
It is not like you can just decide to make all your putts within 100 feet. That won't happen, no matter how good you are, or how good you think you are.
My control driver is a Flash or a Crush. I still throw them on holes easily within reach. But you can't will your control driver to fly farther. And if you put maximum effort on a control driver it is no longer controlled. That is like trying to parallel park at expressway speeds.
Your answer is in the 'bags' of top pros.
Their big drivers are all wide rimmed.
Double G, the big distance thrower uses them.
Avery Jenkins uses them.
Dave Feldberg.... Ken Climo.....
Of course they are not used on every hole for every shot.
Having mastered the Teebird a great disc, don't stop using it, but use it when its necessary (you'll know).
And don't forget your mids, buzzz, rocs... they are worth more than anything.
Don't be afraid to learn.
You'll never learn how to swim if you don't jump in the water.
Hey, I have tried the Wahoo, actually like it. (That's one of the perks of being a reseller DPS).
