"I have had issues with my tires deflating a little bit here and there. I carry a small pump in the car to take care of it in between rounds...I was initially wondering if there were better tires out there that were a similar size that would actually…"

Jake replied to Shawn Boucké's discussion Gateway Scout
"I would agree with what Shawn is saying. I've thrown it quite a few times hard (As mine is blue, I can find it). It seems like a little more stable buzz. It feels REALLY comfortable in the hand...almost like its a touch smaller than other mid…"

"I own one and yes, it does have a lifetime warranty.  It is without question the best bag I have ever owned. It has an adjustable yoke so it fits to the curve of your spine and can take whatever you can throw at it.   Last year I played in…"

"In extreme wind don't use a putter with a big flat rim that the wind is going to catch. Use a stable driver like a TeeBird and it will cut the wind. But there just isn't much room for error in extreme wind.   As far as the video goes,…"

"I think the best way to make a putt with the wind is flat and hard aiming low for the headwind and high for the tailwind. How else you gonna get it in ?"

"bad putting if you ask me. Why is he trying to throw it flat and hard into the chains? just stupid play. I'm sure he has played in high wind before what was he thinking, especially after the first one?"

Putting into EXTREME wind (video)

No matter where you live I'm sure we've all found ourselves playing disc golf on a windy day. I never look forward to putting when it's really windy out because of some horrific experiences and some horrific stories. I've always heard about putts that have stuck in the chains only to have the wind blow them out but I've never actually SEEN this until now.  The video as a whole is excellent but skip to 5:40…See More

Hey Jake,

If you plan on attending the clinic just show up. You might want to bring a few of the same putter and the rest of the discs in your bag as the clinic will not be just putting, plus we should have a round of play at the park after the clinic. I'll mark your name down so we can expect you, but if things change just message me privately. I do need your last name though.
