Nic777 replied to Jeff Nichols's discussion Whats your Grip?
"Due to this thread I have started throwing my first run Z Nuke with 3 fingers instead of 4, still not flying the way it should but a heck of an improvement."

Nic777 replied to Jeff Nichols's discussion What disc WEIGHTS are Appropriate for the Newb to Novice????
"It amazes me as well that a couple grams can make such a difference. My 167 and 174 gram dx valks for example. The 174 is less susceptible to crash and burn on a turnover, but the 167 gives me more distance on average."

"Nice thread, Im 36 and have been playing for 2 years. Dont have the strongest arm, I average about 85 metres (295ft), with the big ones getting to 100 metres (330ft). I'm a little concerned that as my technique improves father time will just…"

Nic777 replied to Jeff Nichols's discussion Whats your FAVORITE Disc???? What disc can you throw that leaves you in Awwwwwwwww????
"Hate to be such a bore... but my buzzz, amazing how many times it rescues me from my bad drive and gives me a drop in for par."

Nic777 replied to Jeff Nichols's discussion Whats your Grip?
"Interesting point you bring up on the widder rimmed discs. My Nuke Hyzers out and i assume it was a lack of disc speed but when i see other guys distances.. the difference might actually be my grip, I have girly sized hands."

Nic777 replied to Daddy_Dragon's discussion Disc Golf vs Ball Golf
"Well their you go, with networks fighting for viewers, if a DG major could get on any network, and viewership is good the rules of capitalism will eventually get the game onto ESPN. Maybe some of the smaller networks should be approached by the PDGA?"

Nic777 replied to Daddy_Dragon's discussion Disc Golf vs Ball Golf
"Maybe a dumb question here, but everyone seems to talk of the holy grail of getting the game onto ESPN. Are their any other sports broadcasters / channels in the States? Surely their must be."

Nic777 replied to Rescue's discussion Are we headed towards PGA style equipement rules?
"You still need to be able to get those high speed discs up to their required speeds. I still throw my Leopard further than the Nuke (about 100 metres./330 ft), so the technology isnt helping me, i need to improve my form."
