    As long as everyone shoots at the same basket it seems fair to me.

        I know Jeff, it's alright; let's change it to just hitting the person, bring a little Guts Frisbee to DG.

        Ol Bob, one of the best books ever published on the art of throwing plastic, and yes you must dress like that, but only for Super Class tourneys...

            That Neanderthal invented the Frisbee, but before he knew what he'd done, he lost it in the tree ferns.

              bought mine in '77, doubt they are any left out there, but you might try Amazon, eBay, Powells...

                I wholeheartedly agree.

                I also somewhat agree with Dave--the basket design needs improvement. In any given round of 4 people, I'll witness at least one putt that should have stayed in the basket but didn't, guaranteed.

                  I have that book, and have had it since the first day I touched a disc, 12 years ago. Well worth the read.

                    Should have stayed? Should have stayed? Really? I SHOULD shoot better, can DF help me with that too? Maybe we should dig a hole in the ground and it has to slide in, oh, nevermind it may slide over...come on, everybody thinks the baskets should be different when they miss. Somehow it couldn't have anything to do with disc angle, speed, rotation, placement of hit... Do we need to find an external locus of control for every struggle we face in our lives...no wonder this country is on it's way to joining the third world, no one wants to do the work, or take responsibility for, well apparently even thier pursuit of a HOBBY...


                    Sorry, didn't mean to go off, but come on...my putting sucks lately, I'm not blaming the baskets, now I'm blaming Dave Feldberg...



                    not really Dave...

                          I'm not speaking on my own behalf, though I've had plenty of putts bounce out that were dead on and at the right power. I've seen it happen across the board for all skill levels. Bouncing off the pole, being pushed back by the weight of the chains, bouncing off the rings at the bottom of the chains, bouncing off the bottom of the basket--I've seen it all happen. These are design flaws. That's why the designs of baskets have changed since Steady Ed's first prototype. They're better, but still far from perfect.

                            Well when you find perfection let me know. If it bounces off the pole, it was thrown too hard, chain weight pushing it away...the throw was not hard enough, bouncing off the bottom, it has to much down angle on the leading edge, how is this the basket's fault?

                              I'll be the first to admit when I have a bad putt, even when a bad putt manages to stay in. But I've seen plenty of "textbook" putts come out of the basket one way or another. And for what it's worth, Dave's putt in the video wasn't textbook.

                              This obviously wouldn't work in a park setting, but as far as a prototype goes, I think Cubby's got a good idea here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Splgd...eature=related
