    So, noticed that the original disc golf thread has been dormant for exactly 6 years to the day, so I opted not to necrobump. :lol:

    At the beginning of summer when I got home from school, I had no idea that I'd be getting into disc golf, no idea at all. As it turned out, some friends of mine were getting married at a community center out of town which happened to have a disc golf course, so they decided to give it a go a few months in advance (they finally tied the knot about a week ago). They really enjoyed it, so they recruited a whole lot of us into the sport. I never imagined that I would enjoy it as much as I have.

    I still *suck* horribly, but hey, I'm having fun. :lol:

    These are the discs that I'm currently using:

    Putter: Innova DX Birdie
    Mid-Range: Innova DX Skeeter
    Driver: Innova DX Thunderbird + Innova Champion Archon

    I use the Thunderbird for normal backhand drives when I want it to curve. The Archon I've found is great for throwing tomahawk-style, having it flip mid-air onto its backside and skipping. I've actually managed to get some great distance that way, honestly further than regular driving (which I'm still woefully inadequate at :lol:).

    Anyone else into it these days?
