Discraft Challenger OS Review

Discraft Challenger OS Review

Discraft’s Challenger OS is one of the best mold modifications I have thrown.  Some mold adjustments make the disc slightly longer or significantly change the stability, but the Challenger OS has just the right amount of added stability to conserve most of the original Challenger’s benefits while bulking it up.

Lightning Rubber Putter Review

Lightning Rubber Putter Review

Lightning Disc Golf is one of the few brands beside Vibram to offer a disc made of rubber.  This is the Rubber Putter and we recently acquired one to test.  Lightning often has a reputation of poor quality discs, but we decided to give them a fair shot and it turns out that Lightning’s Rubber Putter is actually a decent disc when used appropriately.

Just Throw Podcast Episode 10 Adjustment

Just Throw Podcast Episode 10 Adjustment

Episode 10 of the Just Throw Podcast is released!  However, the format is slightly different.  We’ve had to make some adjustments and we’re going to try going to video shows.  This should help keep our costs down and reach a wider audience, as well as increase the frequency of our Just Throw episodes!

Please, let us know what you think we can improve on to keep you listening.  We already plan to improve the sound quality, but would an audio only option for the new episodes be useful to you?  We also plan to upload the old episodes to our site.  Here are a few things we’d like suggestions on:

  • overall quality
  • disc golf topics
  • types of reviews
  • length of episodes
  • format

Daylight has long since faded and the evenings are short prompting many of us to pull out our glow disc golf discs.   You may be wondering if glow disc golf discs are worth while and if glow disc golf plastic works and which is the best glow plastic.  We had those same questions and recently tested out a few glow discs, glow plastics, and even a few lights for charging the glow plastic.  Here’s what we learned.

Halloween Disc Golf Pumpkin Carving

Carving Halloween disc golf pumpkins has blown up over the past few years.  You may not have been able to find many disc golf jack-o-lanterns a few years back, but social media is ripe with disc golf pumpkins now!  Discraft certainly instigated the disc golf pumpkin craze with their Hyzerween contest in 2016, and we can see the popularity continue to grow.

We’ve gathered some of our favorite disc golf pumpkin carvings from around the internet, but we plan to add more as you disc golfers carve even more amazing disc golf pumpkins.  This should give you some great ideas for a hyzer pumpkin of your own, but if you’ve already got one, please share it with us!

Disc Golf Devotion Believe

Disc Golf Devotion Believe

What should you throw? You step up on the cement and stare down the fairway. A long narrowing fairway with tall trees on either side and a cross-breeze that could carry your drive to the end or whip it deep into the woods. A high gliding anhyzer or a low and powerful hyzer? Are you going for distance or are you shooting for consistency? What should you throw?

You may experience anxiety, a worried feeling of making the wrong choice or missing out on an opportunity. Then again, this is just disc golf so maybe you don’t think deeply into your throwing options. But maybe the scorecard is close, or perhaps this is the final hole of a tournament. Perhaps this is life and your shot selection has an impact on your future or on your family. The stakes just got a little higher.

Humans have a natural desire for control, but with that control comes risk. Risk inherently produces anxiety or even fear. We may be able to control the choice, but the long-term outcome is much less certain. Thus, the question that follows is, “Am I making the right choice?”. This question is often the driver of great strife.

Luke chapter 8, verse 50 reads, “Do not be afraid, just believe.” There comes a point where you’ve done all you can and worry does not help, in fact worrying deteriorates the situation. We must trust in our instincts, and more importantly, trust in the Lord.

While it is us who must make the decision, the Lord always provides guidance. The Lord speaks to each of us in a way that we each understand, but we must believe in order to understand. We will choose a path or we will chose a throw, and regardless of our choice, the Lord will be by our side and see us through.

We must remember to believe in the Lord with every decision we make.  Select your disc, choose your line, then trust that the Lord is with you.

Disc Golf Devotion – Perfect Flight

Disc Golf Devotion – Perfect Flight

If you ask another disc golfer what they love about disc golf, there’s a good chance that the flight of a disc will be in the top few answers. A sense of calm satisfaction, almost a state of inner peace, can be felt when you put everything you have behind a disc and watch it sail off on the smooth, pure path on which you intended it. You do everything you can to send the disc on its path, then you let go and watch your work in action.

We spend most of our round chasing that perfect flight. The more seasoned we are, the more practiced we are, the closer we come. But that perfect flight is only something that we will see once or twice a round if we are lucky. As we improve, we become more consistent and each throw is closer to the perfect flight, but rarely do we experience the full perfection we are striving for.

Hope of the perfect flight is part of what keeps us teeing off on the first hole, round after round. No matter how good we become, the perfect flight always reminds us that we can be better. Each day we wake up and work to improve just a little or accomplish just a little more. It’s the hope that all of our hard work adds up to let us see that perfect flight on extra time that drives us. We have good rounds and bad rounds, good days and bad days, but it is in knowing that, even on a bad day, we might hit that perfect flight just once that we keep throwing.

Discraft Ringer and Ringer GT Review

Discraft Ringer and Ringer GT Review

Discraft’s Ringer, originally released in Pro-D, has now been released in the adjusted Ringer GT mold available in Jawbreaker and Soft-X plastics.  We’ve been testing the Ringer for some time and Discraft just recently sent us a Ringer GT in both plastics to review.  Both molds left our ears ringing with confidence from the number of chain hits.
