The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf
The time is now, I am putting together the remainder on the New Rip Disc Golf line of disc golf discs. Let me know what you would like to see more of in a disc and I'll do my bet to meet your needs? It's our goal to meet the needs of the Players in this fast growing sport we have come to love so much!
a disc that flies a quarter mile with just half a pull . even if it's not pdga approved i like to watch my plastic disappear down a fairway . plus i could play it on a real golf course .
mroe speed, more fade, and more float
Playing on a real golf course can be difficult. It's much easier to break par on an imaginary course.
Well here in Hawaii we have just that, an imaginary course! We throw at trees and fisher men and other such people are often in the way so we have to skip the hole and or make up a new hole.
its not so much an imaginary course as it is an ever changing course . heck it has enough light poles to have 4 courses in one park .
Man playing disc golf in Hawaii sounds horrible, here in the north country of NY our only problems are a foot of snow and subfreezing temps.
Why hasn't anyone set up a course with pole holes in Hawaii?
Grip, Stability, Dependability and co$t...
Something that feels good in your hand and is eye catching at the same time. Would be nice to make a consistant mold that stay the same disc after disc. Bright Neon colors are also a plus, playing in the woods and deep snow bright and reflective colors are a must. Would be Effen sweet to see someone blend in hyper-reflective material into plastic blends.. Sorta like you see on highway signs. So if you scan with a flash light it really pop's out at you.
I do to play out there, but only once or twice a month... I like it way more then the park in town, but the park in tow is 5 mins away and the one out there is almost an hour from my house.
I like that idea of the reflective material, but in the mean time carry a small UV (blacklight) LED flash light and use white disc's they show up just like a white tee shirt in a night club!
Heres a good one for you.
While playing in the snow with FLX yesterday, A fellow golfer and I were talking about making a plastic blend that would "Stiffen" up when it got hot out. Most plastic blends do the oppisite and sometimes you really want a stiff disc for skip shots or just for the grip. Sorta like the oppisite of FLX plastic in the cold. I have some esp and even z plastic discs that go floppy in the summer heat. It would be cool to have a disc that "Firmed" when it gets 100*f out
Maybe that's something I could look into once I get going for a while most plastics that I know of harden in the cold, but who knows whats out there. At least a plastic the didn't change in the cold or hot.
