The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

Ok so ive tried them all it seems like, so many people have told me to throw a rock, buzz, mako, ect... But I just simply cant throw them well. I upshot with putter within say 120 feet. but when it comes to anything over that I know I need to throw a midrange. I learned to throw my katana for tight window shots. and my wraiths for anything else buy over hand shots. Ive tried several kind of grips and nouthin works. I just grip lock like crazy with them.


Anybody got anyother ideas, other then practice cause I do plenty of that ;b

I think it has something to do with the deep rim of the disc but IDK.....

You hit the nail on the head. Play a few rounds with a mid only, it will come together.
3 finger grip.

Maybe you are related to Chuck Norris and are just TOO STRONG for a mid!!!!
Play catch with mids at the distance you would consider using that disc. Take a stack of them and try different discs. Try different grips. Try different shots (forehand overhead, roller). Try different lines (straight, hyzer, anhyzer). Try mixing in putters along with mids. 20 minutes of catch should reveal what the problem is. Once you know the problem you will have a better idea how to fix it.
HAHA chuck norris jokes are always good, well playing a few rounds with mid only could be hard....Its an hour drive to the closest course so I only play in tournys, which living in SNDGA area there one every weekend. So I just go down to the local football field and throw and throw and throw till my arm starts killin me. Playing catch is hard to sence im the only discgolfer in the area.... but for now ill keep throwing my drivers untill we get our own course. Thank for the comments guys
Try easier to throw mids....Classic Roc, XD, Breeze (if you can find one), Comet, Stratus, Shark
I would suggest a Comet! It has done wonders for my game.
Try smaller diameter mid range discs like the Cro, Spider or Panther. You may be having trouble switching between the large diameter mids and your small diameter putters and drivers.
Hey, try to throw your Mid like you do a putter...
it helped me...good luck!!
i love the breeze
You could try a fan grip underneath for mids. It seems to help me get more control over the release point and angle. I do fine that I have to throw a mid slightly higher than a driver because they have less glide. I throw Rocs only and am used to them after years of practice. Keep practicing with yours and try to learn the disc. It will come in real handy for longer up shots where you need a straight line with no skip. Throwing the straightest disc is usually the best bet. I did just get a Discraft Stalker. This is real straight.
tried the classic roc,xd,stratus, and shark they where all so so. the best so far is the Lightning Barecat, but the one I got is pretty beat up and they dont realy make them like they used to....
The real question is what happens when you do throw a mid. Does it flip to the right (bh)? Is it wobbly?
At the distance your putters go, I wouldn't imagine your drivers would go much further then mids.
On thing to remember about field practice is that it creates muscle memory. So focus on throwing without wobble- for most it comes from wrist not staying straight or not keeping the disc close(me)-drivers will mask the wobble and make a harder base to improve on.
It could also be how you grip em.
