    Jumping out an a limb here, but does anyone else here play? I started about two years ago and have been borderline obsessed since.
     
  2. Never have played, but that video is pretty insane. Looks fun.

    It's really a blast. It's a lot cheaper than golf to get started, and most places to play are free. It also doesn't have as steep of a learning curve either.

    Yeah as a dad my biggest problem is going to find time. But I'm sure I'll manage.

    tournament went well. we played pretty good until it started raining. i couldnt grip anything outside of my putters. I think Im going to get a set of discraft discs all in their jawbreaker plastic in case i have to play through the rain in a tourney again.

    I've been going ham on discs. I love the Avenger SS and Comet. Star Destroyers. Man I love this hobby.

    Comets are cool, I never clicked with them, but my buddy I play with all the time throws some awesome lines with them. I have a big ol' stack of Star Destroyers. Definitely my favorite distance driver.

    surprised that a thread popped up when i searched tbh. i've gotten huge into it this year. started a new job last fall and a lot of my coworkers are super into it. i started off this summer as a super casual player and now i watch youtube videos every day and am constantly tempted to go out and buy new discs lol.

    Yes! One. Of. Us! Welcome dude. Bad news though, I’ve been playing for 4 years and still want to buy all the discs and watch all the YouTube videos, haha.

    Noticed my last post was more than a year ago. A lot has changed since then. I throw exclusively discraft now except for my one Hannah leatherman leopard3. Can’t throw a comet anymore because my arm speed has gotten so much faster. Still play 2-3 every week

    I can’t recommend the Leopard3 enough as a starter driver
