A few months ago I embarked on a journey to simplify my disc golf bag by reducing the number of molds I carry. The hope was to force myself to learn new shots and rely less on the plastic itself. Here’s my experience and my in the bag video. Read more
Disc golf is played outdoors. Sometimes that means we have to deal with wildlife, insects, and poisonous leaves – the less desirable side of nature. We’re here to help mitigate and avoid those risks.
New discs are amazing! Disc golf manufacturers release several new molds each year and I love it! As a result, I carry way too many discs and I rarely leave them in the bag long enough to lose their factory scent. I’m aware of my problem and it’s time to minimize.
If you’ve been listening to the Just Throw Podcast over the past months then you’ve heard us dropping hints about mini podcasts. Well they’re here now! We’ve had people mention that they’d like more content, but the full length podcasts are difficult to coordinate and then take time for Rodney to process and upload. So we thought we’d add a few smaller pods in between the full episodes. We also recorded video and uploaded to YouTube; here are the first two:
Out Of Print Discs (Discraft Crush):
Please tell us what you think of the mini podcasts. At this point we plan to continue since it gives us an opportunity to cover shorter topics that we may not be able to fit in to the full length podcasts. If you have any topics you’d like us to cover, just shoot us a message!
Thanks for listening, and don’t forget, Just Throw!

Most of our readers are well aware of the winter conditions we experience here in Michigan. And you’re likely also aware that we don’t let those conditions stop us from playing disc golf year round. We’ve discussed the discs, plastics, etc to deal with in the winter but we haven’t specifically discussed the gear we recommend, and there’s a lot of it. Read more
One of the most common questions we get is “How do I get better at disc golf?”. The answer to this question is very simple, just throw; we must do in order to improve. But the person asking this question is usually looking for a deeper answer. The simple answer is correct but let’s dig into why.
If you watch a few “in the bag” videos, you’ll see that many professional disc golfers carry multiple copies of the same mold. Sometimes these are for backup purposes, but sometimes you’ll hear the pro mention a seasoned disc that is a little more understable after the long break in period. That begs the question: can we break in a disc quickly?
Watch a round of disc golf at the local course or a professional tournament, and you’ll notice something very quickly: there are a lot of different putting styles! Spin, turbo, push, spush, walking, and list could go on. Each of those basic putting styles has seemingly unlimited possibilities and personalizations. Zoom out a little and you’ll notice that successful putters have a few basic similarities regardless of individual technique.
