    It looks like it's actually for the dogs. That's all I would use it for.

        You should have seen the aluminum contraption some guys were testing out back in the early 2000's down at Dexter. You know those clamp-on desk lamps that have 2 arms and a spring that all parallelogram together at once? Sumptin' like that. I assumed they were physics guys from the University...

              Hey guys, I wanted to clear up what we are up to. I saw someone posted a forum and figured I better sign up and chime in on my Folf Club, the ultimate disc golf launcher.

              I have no intention of changing the sport of disc golf. The Folf Club is an adaptation for those who simply want to mix it up a bit and have just a little more fun. This is ideal for those that just want to huck discs with little effort, may have a disability or are physically challenged, or for those that just need to get outside and goof around.

              We know it is not approved by the PGDA (and never ever will be) but think it would be fun none the less. Any reason to get outside and fling discs is a good reason.

              We are raising support through a campaign on www.productfunder.com so we can kick-off production. We would love community support for this fun adaptation. We are pre-selling launchers for the cost of a disc, $15 with free shipping for the first 200 people.

              The launcher works with roughly 80% of standard discs. Larger diameter discs fit into the thrower tighter and take a harder swing to release. These larger discs produce farther throws. Discs with smaller diameter fit into the thrower easier and take a more gentle swing to throw. They do not go as far but are easier to control.

              It also works well for playing with the dog if you have old dog discs.

              Thank you again.

              thanks
              -David

                  I can dig it. Looks like a lot of fun, actually. My mom and Dad like to go DGing with me once or twice a year and both can only throw about 100'. If they could throw 200' with one of these things, it would be a lot more fun for them I think, and we could play more.

                  Also, it won't be too long before my dad is in a wheel chair (he has to use a cane to walk now and has a deteriorating Achilles tendon). Something like this might enable him to keep enjoying rounds with me when he's no longer able to walk.

                  But, I am a serious frisbee golfer, so I suppose I'm supposed to hate it?!

                    yes. also, i think we need to chastise more about saying "folf"...



                    to be honest, mr. folf club, the term has inspired me to threaten bitch slaps in the past... so you best watch yourself.

                      I like the idea. The dog tennis ball thrower is called the chuck it. I would suggest you guys call it the Huck It. Folf is lame. Sorry.

                          The Folf Club people are from Bozeman. A lot of misguided souls all over the place say "frolf," but for some bizarre reason Montana is the only place on earth where disc golf is referred to as "folf." Seriously, google the word and everything relevant that comes up will be from MT.

                            I hear in Montana that hitting the basket with the disc is considered holing out, as well. Anywhere on the basket.
                            ďI believe I can hit 18 greens, hit every fairway, you know ó Vision 54, which means you birdie every hole, thatís in the back of my mind. I want to putt better, chip better. That day when I hit 18 greens and one putt, Iíll know Iím a complete golfer. Will that ever happen? Iím not sure, but itís possible. The 54 vision is always in the back of my mind.Ē

                                What gets me is the maker doesn't admit they simply used the existing design of a manual clay pigeon thrower and adapted to throw discs instead.
