    1. p-brane Haha! I was thinking that too about the guitar, but I already had to film this twice due to some technical errors. After I saw the lopsided horns, I just rolled with it.

  1. Excellent. Appreciate the “Layman’s” terms. Wish someone would give us a ballpark on what MPH correlates with a “10” speed, or “8” speed needed to have the disc fly as the numbers indicate. I did notice that during the 2017 Beaver State Fling they were giving us some “Release Velocities” of some of the throws. This has helped me understand speed ratings somewhat.

    1. If I may add my two cents. I have found there is not substitute for going out to a field and throwing your discs back and forth until you really get a feel for what each one will do. If you have a disc that you can make turn over, and your form is at least close to correct, you will have found your arm speed is more than that disc is rated for. If you can get the “s” pattern out of a disc you are in that discs speed range (If it is a disc that is designed to do that. I’m not sure all of them are.)

      Keep track of which way the wind is blowing and if you can, throw into it, and with it. I hope it helps. I’m a beginner but I tend to study anything I get into until I drive myself nuts. lol 🙂

    2. Thanks!
      Unfortunately, it’s not a very clean system. Even the turn, fade, and glide numbers that manufacturer’s give you are all only relative to other discs within the same speed range. A disc with a turn -2 and speed 11 doesn’t truly have the same turn as a turn -2, speed 12 disc. That’s why I just use the flight chart on Marshall Street.
