The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf
What I don't like about recent trends in disc golf is the same thing that soured me on ball-golf about 10-15 years ago. A disproportionate emphasis on the big, BOOMING drives...not enough emphasis on precision and placement. By precision and placement, I mean having to hit windows (left/right/up/down) versus essentially launching it long. Seems like a ton of Intermediates (like me) that I encounter out on the courses at tournaments can drive it a mile...but their short games are horrible. Why do folks think that is?
What I REALLY don't like is when course design mirrors that unfortunate trend. Infinite flight paths can be chosen...as long as you are LONG. What ever happened to all those awesome tunnel shots, or having to fire it no higher than 25-30 feet off the ground to get under that HUGE canopy 50 feet down the fairway? That's the shots that make disc golf SO fun/special (to me).
I think Super Class can bring some of that emphasis on the short game and precision back. As for the earlier comment about bigger discs = easier to control, my experience so far has been the exact opposite. If I miss my release point with a SC disc by even an inch or two (or a fraction of a second), you can hear the audible "Quack, quack, quack!" (wounded duck) coming off the disc as it goes embarrassingly short or offline, LOL. Tough to throw...but very rewarding when you get a good one out there...as you know it was a REALLY good throw (not just the disc). ;-)
