Beginner Tip

Be willing to start slow. Learn how to throw mids and putters at different angles, then move up to the faster discs. Find players who are better than you and watch them throw. Seeing the lines and throws they make (or try to) can open your eyes to more possibilities.

Most Memorable Moment

This is a tie between my first Tourney win and a case of mistaken identity. The first tourney win was also my first tourney. I didn't play particularly well, but I did enough to tie a local player. On the first playoff hole I parked my tee shot, and then nervously hit a 10' putt to win it. The mistaken identity was a couple of years ago at an Ace Race. I had a younger player ask me if I was Eric McCabe after I threw a disc.

What Separates Team Dynamic Discs?

Good question, I think all of the Teams out there are working to grow the sport, but I really enjoy the focus that Dynamic puts on it. I get to hear stories all the time from Team members who are giving away discs, or promoting events. When one of the top Team members is out striping courses before events, you know there is a commitment to making a positive impact.


In The Bag

Drivers

Dynamic Discs Metallic Lucid Defender

The perfect overstable complement to the BioFuzion Defenders I've been bagging. Used for hard hyzer finishes as well as windy days.

Dynamic Discs BioFuzion Defender

My go-to distance driver. When fresh, they are reliably overstable. With some seasoning, they become great max distance drivers.

Dynamic Discs Fuzion Sheriff

For max distance, I go with the Sheriff. I'll also use a broken in one for my long range rollers.

Dynamic Discs Lucid Criminal

The extra speed and stability create a great option when the Felon may not be quite enough.

Dynamic Discs Lucid Felon

My overstable fairway workhorse. I rely on it for distance control hyzers, windy days, ugly forehands, and fun shots.

Dynamic Discs Lucid Convict

The new workhorse of my fairway lineup. The Convict is the fairway version of the Truth, reliably straight with predictable fade.

Dynamic Discs Lucid Escape

Such a sneaky long fairway, it can often sneak into distance driver range. The Escape is great for hitting and holding lines. I use broken in versions for my straight to understable fairway and roller discs.

Midrange

Dynamic Discs Lucid Justice

It's OVERstable. I can trust it to fade even in the worst of winds. Great for both forehand and backhand approaches.

Dynamic Discs Lucid Verdict

A reliably over stable mid. In winds I can trust it to hold a straight line and finish left. A great complement disc to the Truth.

Dynamic Discs Lucid Truth

One of the most thrown discs in my bag, I carry 2-4 depending on the course. I carry a range running from slightly overstable to understable to fill my anhyzer mid slot.

Putters

Dynamic Discs Classic Blend Slammer

I avoided overstable putters for a couple of years, instead relying on the Justice to fill that role, but the Slammer found its way into the lineup. It provides me with a predictable finish on approaches.

Dynamic Discs Classic Soft Judge

My throwing putter of choice. I carry a fresh for straight and hyzer throws/approaches and a beat-in version for my understable approach thrower.

Dynamic Discs Classic Judge

I've loved the Judge for putting since I picked them up. The Classic provides a clean release and confidence that if I hit the line the putter is going in.
