Sooooo, Yesterday I got my Dad involved in DG so now its Dad And Lad Disc Golfing together. He started out throwing backhand with my old 150g dx eagle, and he wasn't getting it very far, like maybe 60 feet.
He was getting really frustrated because on top of that we were at a heavily wooded course so he kept nailing trees and such. Finally I just handed him a 166g champ beast and told him to throw Sidearm! From then on he was great! He was keeping up with me and i was throwing 169g star monster backhand. So we're both throwing about 200 feet or more per drive and it was fun. But he kept getting angry because when he sometimes the disc would come off his hand at a really odd angle.
Does he need a heavier weight or is it just him? He's a strong guy so I'm thinking the discs are too light for him.
He has agreed to disc golf with me now alot since he wants to get in shape.
I'm still searching for a better disc for him to use, I posted a topic about it in the forums, check it out :). He currently only uses 3 disc, z-wasp, 166g champ beast, 176g champ aviar.
