    This is true. On the other hand, it is also true that not all discs were created equal. Some are better than others, and some breed better throwing habits than others. DX Roc is about as good a suggestion as it gets for a true stable midrange, and I believe in the long run it does make a better learning tool than most of the other discs on the market. I'd recommend going lighter than max weight to start with though.

      exactly. this is the first main window, which is the most important window. hit it with the correct angle and speed and the rest is cake. well, in a perfect world.

      the reason i used a roc is cause that's what i throw. i am non-partisan to other mids. i also have been driving with my roc a lot latley too. it's amazing how straight it flies and higher speeds. i've been throwing it 300+ft consistently on a line with very little fade. a lot of the reason for my gained distance came from this you tube clip on midrange grips. i use the fan grip now for my rocs and sometimes my teebirds and eagles.

        Maybe I should just add a chain saw to my disc bag

        Thanks all for the help. I know sometimes I take it too seriously... just the person I am. It is a challange for me and I like it.

          I use the gap idea... and I use the "fixate on a point beyond the gap" idea. I do take my eyes off of the target during my run-up but I find it again prior to release.

          And don't forget... Spray and Pray.
          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

              i find that a really sharp machete is the least noticeable and most fun way to hack down those unwanted woody friends.

              it's good that you take it seriously. I take it seriously too. which is why i was up at 2am chatting on a few disc golf message boards and watching dg dvd's by myself with no beer. what the hell is wrong with me!?

                From a significantly less proficient perspective: if you find yourself to be more accurate with your upshots, it is likely because you are throwing at a stand-still or a single-step toss. If I'm in the woods and need to shoot a gap, I usually just take a single step for my drive rather than a full run-up or x-step. You're utilizing fewer muscle groups and taking out some of the variables. It doesn't matter that you can throw really far with a run-up if you hit the first tree and end up in neverland...

                  that's a good tip too essjay. standing still and 'transfering your weight' allows for way greater control. good call.

                    Great advise. I love throwing straight shots. Ryan G called Brody and I "team f*** the hyzer shot" I thought it was quite appropriate.

                      This is going to sound weird but if you are throwing a RHBH try aiming left of the gap... look there before you throw and try to stay smooth...

                        Seriously good advice here.

                            nice. i teach at a high school. nearly every day i walk down any main hall all i do is visualize a basket at the end of the hall and decipher which disc i would use.
                            as most of us here can agree, i (we) have a serious problem.

                              I do that when I drive!

                              In school... I try to figure out which kid I would have to hyzer over.
