In The Disc Golf Bag: Drivers

ESP Surge
(174 gm)
I LOVE the Surge! It is a super loooong range bomber disc that flies fairly straight. Your going to want to get a Surge in your bag!
ESP Flash
(max wt) The ESP Flash is by far my longest flying disc. It is very fast, and has great glide. Do yourself a favor and pick one up today!
Z Flick
(174 gm) I use the Flick for sidearm shots. Great overstable disc that you can throw flat and know it's not going to flip.
Z Predator
(any weight)
I throw the Predator in ALL conditions. The best headwind disc on the market, hands down! Never met a Pred I didn't like.
ESP Avenger SS
(173 - 174) The Avenger SS is the best roller you'll find. If you have any trouble rolling, pick up an Avenger SS. This disc is also great for looong turnovers, and an easy-to-control driver for newer players.

In The Disc Golf Bag: Midrange

ESP and Z Buzzz
(176 - 178) There is NOT a better midrange disc on the market! This disc flies on what ever angle you put it on. I break out the Z version on those windy Kansas days.
ESP Meteor
(max wt) The Meteor is the longest flying midrange out there. Thrown with a little hyzer, disc will flip up and glide forever… farther than a lot of drivers out there.

In The Disc Golf Bag: Putt and Approach

D Challenger
(170 - 174) The BEST putter on the market! My putter is a stock stamp, and I carry a SuperColor Challenger for upshots within 200 feet. It is a great and very predictable overstable putter. I'm throwing the Dynamic Discs SuperColor Challenger.
ESP Banger GT
(max wt) I use the Banger for most of my upshots, from 200 feet and in. The Groove Top (GT) makes this overstable putter easy to grip and throw

Memorable Disc Golf Moment

One of my most memorable disc golf moments was going to a Wichita Wranglers minor league baseball game. They had me throwing discs out of the park in between innings to entertain the crowd. Kind of a cool feeling crushing one over the center field wall!!
Eric's Disc Golf Tips

Better Ways to Practice
The best way to practice is grab your favorite stack of discs, go out to an open field, and work on all kinds of different shots. If possible, take a video camera with you. It will be a lot easier to fix what's wrong when you see what's wrong. Another thing is, don't be afraid to ask questions. Find your local Pro, he or she should be able to answer any questions you might have.

Putting is Easy... If You Practice

What it really comes down to is practice, and repetition. Find yourself a basket, and a few Challengers, or Magnets. Stand about 15 feet from the basket, putt until you feel comfortable from that range. Then move back a few steps. Continue this process at least three times a week. About an hour of putting practice will become routine in no time. One of the biggest things to remember while putting is to follow thru, and remain balanced at all times. Do this and you will see your putt improve
