By that I mean old.  I'm 56, been playing for 3 yrs, but competitively only 6 months. I developed a mean case on tendinitis recently, which meant a return to forehand only...which is okay, as I can…Continue

Is there something you need to do to these discs to see them at night?  Heard something about a blacklight?  Feel kinda dumb about this.Continue

Wind Beneath My Wraith

So, if you play courses here in Tennessee, you know all too well that wind is almost always a factor.  Yesterday, it was windy as hell.  Gusts of 20plus but steady breezy throughout the day.  I…Continue

"At 62 with a total hip and a total knee surgery behind me, I will add my two cents for throwing at 80%. I find I play much better when I focus on throwing with good form, than when I try to hammer the disc for max distance."

"Not sure what that means, Mike, but if you're implying that I fudged a little on the average...maybe you are right.  I've thrown 400 plus, I average above 300, but 380 might be a small stretch.  It took three years of trial and…"

"Yea, much easier to backhand at 80 % than to flick that way.  I throw pretty stable stuff, without a lot of speed they seek the ground or turn right too soon.  But yup...may have to switch out my discs one day...."

Jim Coonradt replied to Mack's discussion Advice for "seasoned" players
"My right arm has been hurting pretty good for the last month or so. I just tape up my wrist and play. Not much else I can do. Learning to throw smoothly is definitely an advantage when you get older. Proper technique will get good distance."

"Always try to golf at 80% or so over exerting your self leads to injury and off line shots.;)"

Mack replied to Jacob P's discussion sidearm?
"I've been using a Trespass for those shots...it will hold an anhyzer and has plenty of glide.  I recently discovered the cannon.  VERY nice sidearm disc for distance.  How hard do you throw?"

Advice for "seasoned" players

By that I mean old.  I'm 56, been playing for 3 yrs, but competitively only 6 months. I developed a mean case on tendinitis recently, which meant a return to forehand only...which is okay, as I can generally average 320-380 drives.  My concern is my throwing style.  Sure, I can still whip one out right now...but I've seen players get similar distance without seemingly throwing very hard...and I am unable to do so.  Injury is a concern, of course.   Any thoughts?See More
