The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

So I'm still trying to get into the whole Nuke and Katana thing, because I like the extra distance when I throw them right. One trend I'm starting to notice when I throw these discs and ONLY these discs. Is that I get a lot of shots that that go far to high up for me. For me this is odd, because I've always tend to throw low and very seldom "sky" a shot. If any thing I always had a problem getting height on my discs.

So, I'm wondering if anybody else has noticed an increase in their tailgater shots with these discs?


Thanks and Peace!

I've had my first run Pro Katana for a couple of weeks now. The first time I threw it, it was great with a nice long glide and just a little low-speed fade at the end. Every single throw since then (6-8) I've popped it up and I've been very inconsistent with it. I think my biggest problem is that I may not have the speed to throw it properly so I really try to rip it hard and my form and snap goes all to heck. It's in my head, not in the disc.
ive never had that problem with either of those discs, i throw all my discs real low to the ground so maby thats why idk....
The faster a disc is, the more nose angle sensitive it is. Very easy to get the hyper speed drivers up.
No...but do you serve peanuts on those flights? Ha!
Too short of a flight to serve "airplane FOOD" ;)~
form form form, your throwing them wrong with a slower disc it is more forigveable but with the fastest you cant afford to be slackin on form
I have had that happen a few times when I throw my pro katana.I call it golfing for jesus .I wrote it off as trying to throw too hard ,thinking this is a 13, I need to throw this super hard, instead of this is a disc that if i snap it flat will fly just right.The disc isnt bad I just throw it wrong sometimes.
Throwing a Nuke oustide of flat is pretty difficult IMO. When you throw a sky anny just right it bombs so huge, the angle is tough to hit though with the correct amount of snap and nose height, very hard to control for me.
The bad thing about that is its so sweet when you bomb one like that I start chasing the dragon, and all I can say after that is it goes realy far in the wrong direction
Seeing flight like that makes it obsessive to try and make it do it like that all the time... hence creating practice. Becoming intoxicated with distance is a very easy thing to do. Maybe because the only thing better than watching a beautiful flight is watching one suspended in air as long as possible. Gotta keep telling yourself to devote that much time in practice(or more) on accuracy :)
Katana is a fickle one. Parked a 468' 90 degree turnover hole in a wind with it, but also failed miserably to gently hyzerflip it into a headwind today too.
push off with your back foot more.

lots of times people will leave their back foot on the ground all together. Practice not even doing a step up, but just pushing off.
