    yes i did! ended up buying a discraft starter set that came with a bag to go along with a buzzz i've had for years. i can tell the new discs i got are significantly worse quality than the buzzz, so i think there will be some upgrades in my future.

    i've been to four courses and having a lot of fun! such a great quarantine activity.

    That's awesome! Your buzzz must be either esp or z? starter sets are usually cheaper base plastics like pro d or x, which works well for putters but can really beat up quickly when throwing the mids and drivers.

    i believe it's the big z buzzz. mine is more blue-ish than the one at that link though. i had the hardest time looking it up because there's no labeling. just the big decal of the bee.

    yeah that makes sense. learning all the different types of plastics is super intimidating with all the different brands, its wild. I went waaaaaaay into the rabbit hole when i first started so I learned what most of the popular discs numbers were, what flight pattern they were supposed to have, and tried to learn about all the different plastic types.

    Thinking about entering a doubles tournament with my buddy next month. We’re definitely not good enough to actually compete, but neither of us have done it before and i think it’s be a blast.

    doubles tournaments are the perfect intro to tournaments. they arent PDGA sanctioned so they're pretty relaxed and fun. go for it!

    I did a tournament back in February, and it is both super fun and nerve-wracking at the same time. Ultimately, its as fun as you make it...I did really well in Round 1 and was in like 3rd place in my divison, then that got in my head and took some triple bogeys in Round 2.

    If you go in there to have fun and see what competition is like, you'll have a good time

    I don't know if everyone in here follows the pro scene, but if you don't this is a fantastic round that will get you hooked. A tough wooded course, a great battle, and the highest payout in disc golf history ($20,000 to the winner).

    Jomez is probably my most watched youtube channel over the past six months.

    Anyone have a fave pro? I always pull for Eagle but honestly most of the top level players are pretty damn likable. Haley King is prolly my fave FPO player because she’s from Wisconsin, so I was hype to see her win last weekend.

    I love the energy Kevin Jones brings to disc golf. I really think he can be a great ambassador for the sport with his enthusiasm, and his background of being a former collegiate athlete. I like Dickerson a lot too. I've found myself rooting for Uli and Jerm as well, especially since watching their practice rounds/listening to their commentary. I'll root for Nate Sexton too if he's playing.

    I also root for my fellow lefties. Zach Melton, Brian Earhart, Reid Frescura, and Chris Clemons. Especially ones with sick forehands, since I aspire to as proficient forehand and backhand.

    KJ is so dope. That ace he had in the skins match a few weeks back, that was fucking incredible.

    I play ultimate. Disc golf looks unreal though.
