The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf
At first I thought you were refering to "Thumbers" in Michigan. That's what they call us who live in the "thumb area" of the lower penninsula of MI. Anyways, I love throwing thumbers but stink at throwing tomahawks. I don't throw them every shot but they are one of the funnest types of shots to throw.
I learn something new everyday, Thumb Nation is a group of us who primarily use a "Thumber" style of throw around 90% of the time. We want to reach out to others who use this technique alot, to help get feedback on what discs to use and what kind of results and flight patterns, etc that other playersd are getting. I'm with you on the Tomahawks, they have their place, but in our eyes Thumber is the way to go!!
Thanks for the feedback, eventually once we get up and running we're hoping to get some specialty discs made strickly for THUMBERS!
As a Design Engineer for a company that supports the Military and NASA. I got all the resources to develop some discs geared to improve the performance of overhands throwers. It's just a matter of putting it all together one day and Turn this club into a Brand, Is our ultimate goal!
All this time I've spent trying to tweak our course to make it less thumber-friendly.....now I discover that the darkside is organized!
HAHAHA....Low ceilings may force a backhand or forehand here and there, but we'll always find a way or make some excuse to throw Thumbers, and if its too low, we can always Unite with Rollers!
Thumbers are a great throw for anyone's game, what discs do you like to use for your thumbers?
