I like Grants Pass and have a really good friend down there. It is a little warm for me in the summer but would probably suit you just fine. There are some fun courses there and in Northern Calif, and Roseburg has a great course @ Whistlers Bend. Lots of nice country to wander down there also. Sorry I haven't gotten back to you before now. I don't get on here as much as I used to... Any ? just holler. You can also email me at smerf@nu-world.com Take care and thanks for the prayers. It is healing slowly but it would help if I would stop playing Disc Golf and stay off it... Hard to do.

Hey Hans,
As you know, not all Teebirds are the same. Back in the day I threw the 2nd run flat top CE TL's, which were superb. I never liked the domey versions of Teebirds (or pretty much any domey disc).

So depending on which version of Teebird you are replacing, Discraft models which replicate some of those flight patterns are Rogues, Surge SS's, 1st run Z Trackers or the new Z Stalkers.

I used the CE TL's for long range anhyzer drives. Currently the Rogue fills that spot. I find the Rogue has a very similar turn (and stability) but better glide. For shorter anhyzers I have a seasoned Z Tracker (which resembles CE Leopards in flight).

Rogues and Surge SS's are very similar discs. Rogues are made in a candy plastic blend. Surge SS's come in Z (pure candy).

The Z Stalker is an intriguing disc. It flies just like a Buzzz but farther. So that tweener shot that looks a bit farther than a midrange shot but shorter than a driver is what it covers. The Stalker had a prototype run, sold out, and has not yet been run again.

Good games. Those and a thousand variations will help your game. Play them with better players as often as you can.

Hans, that is a darn ambitious plan. For kids that young it may not require much expertise to start them out. So long as you have lightweight discs, make sure they don't throw them at each other and have fun it is probably all good.

I view golf (and disc golf) as more mature sports. Few kids are going to love golf as much as the running, jumping, action sports. Starting kids off with throwing and catching discs is good. I'm not sure they need to learn putting and how to control anhyzers. But I could be wrong.

Hans, a controlled anhyzer is the toughest shot to master. As your question mentions, there are different way to make the disc flip over. Depending on the shot, I might use any or all of them. Generally what works best for me is to tilt the wing up at release. Anhyzers are touch and feel shots because the margin of error is so small. They require a lot of practice to find the touch.

Like you, I play a lot and grow callouses. You have three choices, ignore them, sand them down or prevent them. If you ignore them, eventually they will grow enough so that they tear off and leave a bloody gash. You can regularly sand them down with a finger nail file or emory board. Or you can prevent them by taping the area before you play (paper tape works best). I tape my finger and never grow the callous in the first place.

I have tried gloves of all sorts. The thinner and tighter the glove the better it works (racquetball type was my favorite) but as soon as the glove gets wet you can't dry it so you have to change gloves. And no glove gives as good a grip as stickum. Stickum is PDGA legal and my favorite is called Pow'r Tac.

Hope this helps.

It's in the first aid section of most drug stores right next to the gauze tape. It is much better than gauze or band aid's.

Saw your post on mark's profile. I personally have the same problem that is developing. I usually paper tape the tip of my index finger because driving BH hurts it SOOOO bad after 10 throws. I add paper tape when I know I have to FH a lot at the bottom of my index finger. I am a chef so I have a knife callus that is extended by the FH throwing. Paper tape cures all.

Hans, The players who love to practice get very good. So keep practicing and leave lots of room for trophies on your mantel.

You asked about clinics. If by your question you mean, how do I decide when to videotape something for a teaching clinic?: Then the answer is whenever Brian Sullivan from Discraft is willing to start the camera rolling. We have taped a few clinics that have not been produced (and may never be for all that I know). If you mean by the clinic question, when do I teach techniques?: Then the answer is pretty regularly-at least a few times a week someone finds me on the course and asks for a lesson.

Hey whats up? This is regarding the Star Cobra question. They do have star cobras out. They are CFR discs currently. We actually have about 10 in our store right now. You can see them at www.lsdiscs.net. Feel free to ask if you have any questions, Lars
